he move follows the NFL and NCAA’s recent success in blocking single-game bets in Delaware on grounds that it posed a threat to the integrity of US sports.
From September 10th, in-play betting on NFL and NCAA games will be available at The Venetian, Palazzo and the M Resort Spa Casino in Las Vegas. In-play betting in Las Vegas has previously been offered on the NCAA March Madness Basketball Tournament, the NBA Playoffs, horse racing`s Triple Crown, and selected Major League Baseball games.
Robert Goldstein, President of both The Venetian and Palazzo Las Vegas, said: "The addition of "In-Running" is certainly going to enhance our sports book offering and be a huge hit with the many sports aficionados who spend time at our properties. We are constantly looking for opportunities to add new and exciting amenities to our overall guest experience and this is the type of "only in Las Vegas" concept that helps differentiate The Venetian and Palazzo from other properties on the Strip, and also demonstrates the true uniqueness of Las Vegas and why there is no city in America quite like it."
Lee Amaitis, President and CEO of Cantor Gaming, added: "In-Running is particularly well suited for football because of the popularity of the game and the huge number of football fans interested in sports betting. With In-Running, customers can place bets during the game, so fans can have a stake in the action all the way through the event."
