Betting Now Open on Nevada Schools

9 February 2001

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Feb. 9, 2001 – As reported by the Associated Press: "The end of the longtime ban against accepting bets on games involving Nevada schools has brought some action at Las Vegas Strip sports books, and little at others.

"The big winners are bettors who can now make immediate future book bets on the March NCAA men's basketball tournament.

"Before the ban was eliminated by the Nevada Gaming Commission, sports books couldn't post NCAA future book odds until Nevada's two universities were eliminated from tournament contention.

"…Some believe the ban might have cost sports books potentially millions of dollars in annual revenue. Other say the effect was negligible. < Gaming News
