Sports betting has gained a tidal wave of momentum in the last decade and the Nevada Sports Books have reaped every benefit. With March Madness upon us, we can expect the upward trend to continue with big business at the Books this week.
Currently, Nevada is the only state with full-fledged legal sports betting, but other states are trying to cash in on the very profitable action. Several states, including New Jersey, have tried to break into the industry but have fallen short.
As the fight pushes on to expand sports betting outside of Nevada, the role of technology is sure to play a huge part in this boom. With digital gaming initiatives at Las Vegas’ Silverton, The Palazzo, The Palms, Tropicana, The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, The Cosmopolitan, and The Venetian, global technology solutions provider McCann Systems is ready for the upcoming demand for Sports Books.
“We have all seen the latest reports from the UNLV Center for Gaming Research and we know it’s coming. Everyone knows it’s coming… but we are prepared for it,” says Robin Goldman, EVP-Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at McCann Systems. “With major sports commissioners voicing their support for a federally regulated sports betting system expansion, we already have the experience and expertise to meet this pending surge head on. We have designed, integrated, and built most of the Sports Books and Kiosks in Las Vegas and are excited to be part of the national expansion.”
