Guide To Online Sportsbooks Nevada

Nevada was the first state to legalize and regulate sports betting in 1949. You can wager on sports in Nevada anytime and anywhere in the state, which still has the most-robust gambling market in the country.

But with the U.S. Supreme Court striking down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), the federal ban on sports wagering, in 1992, other states are set to rival Nevada’s sports betting dominance. More than a dozen other states have legalized and regulated sports betting with more to follow.

If you want to bet on sports in Nevada, getting familiar with the physical sportsbooks available in the state doesn’t hurt. You’ll have to visit one of the many locations in the state to finish registering for your account with one of Nevada’s numerous mobile betting apps.

You can easily download these apps for iOS from the app store and download the apps available for Android devices at the location website. But before you’re able to bet, you must complete a formal registration process within the casino before using the app at one of the sportsbook locations.

What to Consider When Choosing Nevada Betting Sites

There are so many betting sites to choose from in Nevada. In fact, there are more options than any other state. Here are some things to consider when choosing a site in Nevada:

  • Sports and Odds

    One of the first things you have to research is whether or not the sportsbook offers the sports and events you want to bet on. For instance, the NFL is bet on everywhere, but what about soccer or horse racing internationally? In Nevada, you can pretty much bet on anything.

    Once you find what you want to be on, you next need to take a look at the odds. When you have the odds, go to an odds comparison site, pick a game or event and see how the odds compare to the competition.

  • Free Bets, Bonuses & More

    Nevada sportsbooks offer all kinds of enticements to bettors — free bets, bonuses and more. They want to attract you to their sites, especially when there are so many to choose from. Look around for some of the deals and free bets.

  • User Experience
    In Nevada, sportsbooks care about your user experience. They have to because the competition for your money is fierce. But some brands offer betting sites and apps that work better than others, are easy to use and look great on mobile devices. Research sites and apps available in Nevada to see which ones appeal to you.
