Vegas To Start Taking Bets On eSports?

You can bet on damn near anything in Las Vegas so it is no surprise that discussions are taking place concerning betting on eSports. My gut tells me that, if it ever does come to pass, it wont be for a long time.

In a recent Gaming Policy Committee meeting, representatives from Nevada’s casino industry discussed the potential of expanding into the world of eSports. The state does not have laws against gambling with eSports, so it could happen. Craig Levine, CEO of the ESL, was present at the meeting, and discussed with the committee their concerns on match-fixing and doping.
