Nevada approval for mobile wagering application

Leroy’s App from American Wagering is now permitted for use through Blackberry devices with firm submitting another version built on the Android operating system.

Thursday 30th December 2010

Race and sportsbook services and technology provider American Wagering Incorporated has announced that its Leroy’s App mobile wagering application for Blackberry devices has been approved by the Nevada Gaming Control Board following the completion of a successful field trial. Las Vegas-based American Wagering revealed that the Nevada Gaming Control Board places all new technologies created for the gaming sector on a probationary period known as a field trial in order to determine whether there are any flaws. “American Wagering is pleased that the regulators approved our technology and found it to be problem-free,” said Vic Salerno, Chief Executive Officer for American Wagering. “We did not have a single issue during our trial period. The Leroy’s App is working great, customers love it and it has exceeded our expectations. American Wagering also stated that it has submitted a Leroy’s App application built on the Android platform to the Nevada Gaming Control Board for regulatory approval. “Smartphones and other mobile devices will be key products on our development path for the coming year,” said John English, Business Development and Public Affairs Senior Vice-President for American Wagering. “The approval of the Leroy’s App is the creation of a new market segment for sports wagering and I am proud to be a part of its creation here in the United States. “The Nevada regulators placed significant challenges on American Wagering to provide a means of offering account wagering on a mobile device whereby we could verify that the bettor was in the state. We rose to the challenge and succeeded.' American Wagering declared that it sees the Leroy’s App as a way to boost bottom lines as the application is a ‘low cost, convenient and efficient way of communicating with the customer and taking wagers’. The firm revealed that there is no equipment to purchase or maintain while the relationship between the sportsbook and the bettor is conducted through a smartphone. “American Wagering is a company built by bookies for bookies,” said Salerno. “We are a member of the gaming industry, serving as both a vendor to the casinos and as an independent sportsbook operator. This dual role requires American Wagering to constantly build a better way for bettors to enjoy their wagering experience. We provided the gaming regulators and the industry with a solution for sports wagering on a mobile phone.”
