We’re deep in the dog days of summer but it never hurts to plan. The beginning of football season is right around the corner and it’s time to get ready to bet on the games. Football in Las Vegas is a big deal for many reasons.
For starters, football is the most popular sport in America. Las Vegas bars, restaurants, and sportsbooks will be packed every weekend for football.
Football is the most popular sport to bet on for anyone who lives or visits the entire state of Nevada. In fact, there is more money wagered on pro and college football than all other sports combined.
Betting on football games is more fun than ever. Sportsbooks are offering different ways to bet on the games than just offering sides and totals. Some sportsbooks even offer In Game wagering on the games where you can make a variety of wagers while the game is being played.
Mobile Sports Wagering
There’s one thing that makes gambling sports better today than ever before. Mobile sports wagering allows gamblers to place a bet on a game anywhere in the state of Nevada. If the mood hits you, it’s now possible to place a wager on a game from the pool, while shopping, during dinner and so on. Be safe – don’t bet while driving. Pull the car over then bet.
Being able to bet from anywhere in Las Vegas is great but you don’t have to leave the sportsbook to find convenience from the apps. Being able to avoid the lines to place bets in the sportsbook might be the best byproduct of the sports wagering apps. There’s no bigger waste of time in Vegas than standing in line.
Once your account is funded, there’s no need to stand in the long lines on Saturday or Sunday to place a bet. Just open the app and place a wager.
Opening A Sports Wagering Account
Opening a sports wagering account in Nevada is simple. Just bring ID and money to a sportsbook and open an account after you’ve downloaded the sports wagering app. The initial process usually takes 10 to 15 minutes to deal with paperwork. While anyone can sign up for an account, the mobile app may be used to place wagers while in the state of Nevada.
Locals have long enjoyed the convenience of betting on sports with an app. Tourists were slower to adapt to the technology at first. Convenience is a major key to using a mobile sports wagering app. At first the apps were mostly available at off-strip casinos. That’s not convenient for most tourists.
The Vegas Strip casinos have caught up with the competition. Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts now have mobile sports wagering apps. Almost every casino in Las Vegas offers a mobile sports wagering app for iPhone and Android.
