Nevada Casino Launches Mobile App

Nevada Casino Launches Mobile App

The South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in Las Vegas has become the fourth Nevada company to offer a mobile betting app for sports bets. The application was launched last month at five Nevada locations, including four in Las Vegas.

The app, available for the iPhone, iPad, Android and Android tablets, is free to download and resembles the William Hill app that has been available in Nevada for more than a year.

The app requires a minimum $100 deposit, and can only be used in Nevada. It features lines set by the sports book at South Point, but players can deposit money or collect winnings at four other properties participating in Nevada Sports Books in addition to South Point—the Cannery, Eastside Cannery, Rampart and the Virgin River casino in Mesquite.

“Our guests have the opportunity to place their sports bets from home, while at South Point at dinner or at the bar,” said Ryan Growney, general manager of South Point. “By adding this new mobile betting application to our sports books offerings, we can showcase a new method of placing bets to sports fans throughout Nevada.”

The app will offer all types of bets except parlay cards or parimutuel racing. Cantor Gaming, Station Casinos and William Hill are the other sports book operators to offer a mobile wagering device.
