Nevada Bill Pitches Live Casino BroadcastsBy Daniel Michaels, May 20th 2005
A bill recently introduced to the Nevada State Senate would allow the state to license and regulate live casino broadcasts of gambling games. SB 431 was introduced March 24 and turned over to the Judiciary Committee. It would allow the Nevada Gaming Commission to authorize rules and regulations to govern the live broadcast of games. Under the bill, the games could only be broadcast by satellite and through an encrypted or scrambled signal that cannot be easily de-coded. Games would not be broadcast to anyone outside the venue of an authorized user or to anyone in Nevada. An authorized user would include someone located in a state or jurisdiction where betting and wagering on live broadcasts is legal. In addition, licensed companies must have mechanisms to keep underage people from playing. On April 8, the Nevada Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony from Herbert Lindo, president of Kenilworth Systems Corp. of New York, who says his company wants to put cameras above Nevada's gaming tables and beam the action to England via the Sky Network, so several million people could see the games.
