This week, my column in the Las Vegas Business Press looks at how a class at the William S. Boyd School of Law has helped Nevada take a step into the future of gaming, which I think is online:
People have been gambling online for 15 years now. You don’t need to be a clairvoyant to see that online play is in the industry’s future. But between now and tomorrow, there are several uncertainties. When will the United States legalize Internet gambling? How will online operations be regulated? How will prospective operators get licensed?
With an assist from a class of students from the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, the Nevada Legislature took a step toward answering at least the last of those questions.
I enjoyed learning about the students’ contribution–I don’t recall having heard much about it before, so I was glad to share the news.
