The technology isn't totally new as similar machines are already in operation at race tracks, but the government is not taking chances with younger people wandering into the sportsbook and placing bets.

How Much Longer Will There Be A Need For Workers At Sportsbooks?
Over the past year, we've seen betting stations and computerized betting continue to become the focus of sportsbooks. Every sportsbook Cantor Gaming builds or remodels is updated with mission control-style betting stations. Without getting up we can place sports wagers right in our seats or even with a handheld device using our Cantor Gaming account. Call us lazy, but we enjoy this freedom technology has brought to sports betting. Soon, similar computerized technology should be coming to the horse racing side of sportsbooks.
A new horse racing system will, initially, be set up kiosk-style and remove all human contact from horse betting - even payment, which is unlike the Cantor Gaming system. According to the Las Vegas Sun, the process will take less than five minutes to set up beginning when we enter our driver’s license into the kiosk and confirm some simple information like social security number, home address and so forth. When the information is verified, all we'll need to do is insert cash and go.
