Fans at future Las Vegas Raiders home games will be able to legally place bets on their phones from inside the planned USD 1.9B, 65,000-seat stadium.

L

ast week, the Las Vegas Stadium Authority unanimously approved a conditional lease agreement for the Raider stadium. The lease includes language that prohibits "any Gaming or Gambling, the maintaining or operating of a Gaming Establishment and/or sports wagering or any wagering on racing or other non-sports events."

However, according to the stadium authority and Nevada gaming officials, nothing in the lease blocks access to the mobile sports betting apps offered by the majority of the state's regulated sportsbooks.

The NFL could ask the Nevada Gaming Commission to prohibit access to the mobile betting apps at the stadium.

"The NFL has not approached me for any policy decisions," Nevada Gaming Commissioner chairman Tony Alamo told ESPN.
