Nevada approves mobile verification for cashless casino accounts

The Nevada Gaming Commission has approved remote registration for cashless gaming and payment accounts. This will allow gamblers to sign up for a casino’s cashless system without travelling to the actual property. Patrons will be able to create wagering accounts online and upload ID documents for verification.

The NGC’s approval only pertains to casino wagering accounts. Mobile sports betting accounts in Nevada will still require the account holder to physically visit a sportsbook before they can start using that account.
