Crypto Is The Future For Nevada Gambling ?

The Nevada Gaming Commission will review a recommendation from the Gaming Control Board on ZenSports Inc., a West Hollywood, California-based startup that intends to develop a better mousetrap when it comes to sports wagering in the Silver State, on Thursday.The Nevada Gaming Commission will review a recommendation from the Gaming Control Board on ZenSports Inc., a West Hollywood, California-based startup that intends to develop a better mousetrap when it comes to sports wagering in the Silver State, on Thursday.

 

Mark Thomas, president, treasurer, secretary, CEO, chief financial officer, director, shareholder, and 81.35 percent owner of ZenSports, hopes to offer peer-to-peer sports wagering someday – people betting against each other in a game rather than against the house. He also hopes to make bitcoin bets someday.

 

Thomas was strongly recommended for a licence to run Big Wheel Casino in Lovelock, a truck stop on Interstate 80 northeast of Reno. Strategic Gaming Management, which also owns Baldini’s Sports Casino in Sparks, is selling the little facility to ZenSports.

 

Thomas stated that he understands that such locations would not create the volume he requires to be viable, which is why he is building an online sports app that may be used statewide if he can obtain enough sign-ups to compete with William Hill, BetMGM, and WynnBET.

 

The Control Board suggested a two-year licence for Thomas, but it will be intriguing to see if the commission, which now consists of four members, approves something less stringent.

Peer-to-peer betting and cryptocurrencies aren’t on the agenda for Thursday, but it’s apparent Thomas is planning for new ground in sports betting.
