Strangely to us, we still won't be able to place wagers on our MacBook. If only our netbook from 1992 still worked. These mobile apps will allow sports betters the ability to legally wager on sports on pretty much all smartphones at any time they are within Nevada state lines - but, again, only with Station Casinos and Leroy's properties. We think there will be a lot more excitement about this technology when it hits some of the more popular strip casinos via Cantor Gaming.
Curiously, Cantor has been sitting back watching Station and Leroy's expand into the mobile space while they focus on brick-and-mortar operations (a.k.a. sportsbooks). We're not sure what effect this kind of mobile gaming will have financially in Las Vegas, or across the nation, but we love being able to make a legal wager on a whim wherever we are in the state. Additionally, we're curious to see how all of the mobile gaming apps effect Cantor Gaming's efforts into the market. As the largest name (Cantor Fitzgerald) in the sports betting business, we don't expect them to sit back and just watch the competition expand.
