The committee will discuss esports betting and formulate new rules and recommendations.
US.- The Nevada Gaming Control Board’s (NGCB) Esports Technical Advisory Committee has organised a meeting for August. The committee will discuss sports betting as an option for the state and consider new rules and recommendations.
The Esports Technical Advisory Committee met earlier in July to collect expert opinions and examine official data. Next month’s meeting takes place ahead of the committee’s next quarterly meeting.
It’s not the first time Nevada has considered accepting sports betting options. At the next meeting, the committee will discuss whether sports betting rules can be added or modified and will review the board’s Regulation 22 on sports pools and racebooks to decide if adaptations can be made.
In June, the Nevada Gaming Control Board recommended authorisation of the county fair horse races that take place in the cities of Ely and Elko, Nevada.
