Nevada Sports Betting

There are more than 30 states with some form of legal sports betting, but none come close to the Silver State when it comes to sheer volume of wagering opportunities.

Nevada remains the hottest spot on the planet for sports bettors, with more than 200 casinos offering some form of sports betting and more than a dozen operators providing residents and visitors with online sports wagering opportunities. And while Las Vegas might no longer have a monopoly on sports betting, it’s still doing just fine, thank you.

Las Vegas has fully embraced the online sports betting phenomenon, but there are a limited number of notable operators in the space at the moment.

Having held sway in Nevada prior to the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act seems to matter; BetMGM and Caesars are prominent throughout the state, while DraftKings and FanDuel are noticeably absent.

Here’s a look at our top-rated online sportsbooks in Nevada.

Caesars is proving to be one of the most aggressively expanding brands in sports betting. Unfortunately, like all major U.S. sportsbooks, they are quick to limit you if you go on a tear and their odds boost promos offer low maximum bet limits.

FanDuel Review

FanDuel reigns supreme right now as the No. 1 betting site in America. And it has largely earned that spot on the strength of superior brand recognition, an easy-to-use product, an overwhelming number of markets for North America’s most popular sports, and representation in every state in which it is permitted to offer legal sports betting.

DraftKings Review

DraftKings had a solid reputation as the leading DFS provider in the country, so the shift to legal sports betting felt natural. They offer one of the most voluminous collections of ongoing promos and odds boosts in the industry as they cater to the beginner crowd. However, their reputation has dwindled as outspoken CEO Jason Robins leads the charge of the anti-profitable bettor mentality that runs rampant amongst sportsbooks that are quick to limit winning players.

PointsBet’s innovative nature shows that they don’t want to just be another book you place typical bets. Unfortunately, they are quick to limit bettors on a hot streak and limit the number of promos you’re able to take advantage of, making it necessary for you to shop at other books regularly.

WynnBET Review

Wynn has been steeped in the legal gambling scene in Vegas for as long as anyone out there. In other occurrences where you have an operator with a rich history and influence in retail casino operations and resorts, the focus can predominantly be on slots and table games. The online sportsbook can be a casualty of convenience. We were pleasantly surprised to find that isn’t the case with the WynnBET app.

Nevada Promos and Bonuses

Just about everyone loves free stuff, and Nevadans are certainly no different. Nevada-based sportsbooks are clamoring to add new customers – and that’s great news for those of you looking to join the fray. Here are the top bonuses and signup offers available in the Silver State:

Caesars: First Bet up to $1,250 +1000 Tier Credits + 1000 Reward Credits

Caesars Sportsbook is now offering its "Go Full Caesar this Football Season" welcome bonus for new users. For prospective bettors, your first bet is on Caesars up to $1,250. If the bet loses, you get 100% of your stake back as a free bet. 

Note that $10 is the minimum wager amount accepted to qualify for this offer. All credits will be added to a user's account within 7 days. The free bet is for one-time use within 14 days and cannot be divided across multiple wagers.

New users will also receive 1000 Caesars Rewards Tier Credits and 1000 Caesars Reward Credits®, win or lose. Tier Credits contribute to your Tier Status, which gives you more benefits and faster service.

Tier Statuses are as follows:

Gold: 0 – 4,999 Tier Credits
Platinum: 5,000 – 14,999 Tier Credits
Diamond: 15,000 – 24,999 Tier Credits
Diamond Plus: 25,000 – 74,999 Tier Credits
Diamond Elite: 75,000+ Tier Credits
Seven Stars®: 150,000+ Tier Credits (exclusive invitation only)

Sports bettors can earn 1 Tier Credit for every $5 of potential profit on sports bets placed *Up to 10 times the original amount staked* Users can redeem these points when playing, dining, shopping, or staying at Caesars resorts and casinos.

BetMGM: $1,000 Risk-Free Bet

BetMGM has an average sign-up bonus for Nevadaders, offering a $1,000 risk-free bet for new users. It’s a bump up from the lowly $600 they were offering for a while.

With the risk-free bet, you only get money back if your first bet loses, and they match your first bet up to $1,000. There are no minimum or maximum odds restrictions on your first bet, which is nice since sign-up promos usually feature those. While that’s admirable insurance, it rewards you with nothing if your first bet hits. For that reason, deposit matches are generally slightly more appealing.

WynnBET: $200 Free Bet

The silver lining of the WynnBET promo is that you only need to deposit $10 to get the maximum amount of the $200 bonus whether your qualifying bet wins, loses, or is a push. Most sportsbooks require a 100% deposit match to trigger a complete bonus, meaning you would have to deposit $1,000 to get $1,000 back, and in the case of a risk-free bet, you would only get a free bet or credit if your qualifying bet loses.

Unfortunately, WynnBET Iowa does complicate how you receive your free bets. The $200 is divided into four $50 bets. The first free bet will be released within 72 hours after the settlement of your first qualifying bet. The remaining three free bets will be released in a single installment every seven days until all free bets have been released.

(Note: Terms and conditions apply to all offers and bonuses.)

Nevada Betting Apps

Caesars Sportsbook

Moving away from William Hill’s cluttered interface to a simpler design for the U.S. market is just one example of how Caesars prioritizes putting users first. Add in one of the top loyalty programs in online sports betting and a wide array of bonus options for newcomers, and Caesars is among the top operators in Nevada.

Check out our Caesars sportsbook review.

BetMGM Sportsbook

BetMGM might not be “The King of Sportsbooks”, but it’s awfully close. You won’t find a better assortment of regular promotions and contests anywhere else, and by increasing the maximum value of their risk-free bet, BetMGM has improved one of the few weaknesses of its online sportsbook offering.

Check out our BetMGM sportsbook review.

Circa Sportsbook

Beginners might bristle at the lack of any kind of welcome offer, but frankly, dear bettors, Circa don’t give a damn. Its Las Vegas sportsbook is quite possibly the greatest sports betting venue on the planet, and it makes no secret of the fact that its app is primarily a destination for high rollers. If that’s you, then come on in!

Check out our Circa sportsbook review.

WynnBET Sportsbook

WynnBET leverages the benefit of its presence in Sin City, routinely offering play-and-stay golf packages at Wynn Las Vegas as prizes. Dig a little deeper, though, and you’ll find a sports betting product that offers a much smaller bonus than the competition and is virtually unusable on desktop.

How to Bet in Nevada

Choose your sportsbook

Consult our top list above for the best sports betting options available to you in Nevada. Our interactive list allows you to sort sportsbooks based on a number of criteria, including banking options, bonuses and quality of customer service.

If you’re looking for more information before making your choice, be sure to check out our detailed, unbiased reviews for each of the top sportsbooks in Nevada. This is especially important if you want to understand how each book’s bonus offers work.

Register in person

You’ll need to register in person to bet on sports in Nevada. Registration requirements vary slightly by sportsbook, but most follow the same protocols. Be sure to have your personal information (name, address, phone number) and credit card details (number, expiry date, CVV) handy.

Deposit and claim your bonus

Once you’re comfortable with how your sportsbook’s new signup bonus works, it’s time to make your initial deposit and claim that sweet bonus. The majority of first-time offers for Nevadaders come in one of two forms:

  • Risk-free bets: This offer guarantees you a refund on your first wager if it is graded as a loss. The sportsbook will refund your initial bet amount (up to a specific limit) either as cash or as site credit.

  • Deposit match: This offer sees the sportsbook match your initial deposit dollar-for-dollar, though there are two caveats. The deposit match will come with a maximum limit, and in the majority of cases you will be required to “play through” your initial deposit by a certain multiple in order to earn the bonus.

Select and finalize your bet

Congratulations! You’re ready to place a wager. Take some time to familiarize yourself with the app interface before diving in. Most mobile operators make it easy for new sports bettors to navigate, but it’s still a good idea to know where everything is.

From there, you can place any type of wager you like; the most popular bet types are the moneyline, spread or total. You can also dive into team or player props, or even kick things off with a futures bet.

Once you have the desired wager(s) in your betting card, take one last look to ensure you’ve made the selections you want. If everything is good, simply click the “Bet” button – and you’re off!

Nevada Legal Sports Betting History

Nevada’s decades-long sports gaming history has been the subject of dozens of books – and we would need a whole lot more space than this to tell every tale.

Instead, here’s a condensed look at Nevada’s storied sports betting history:

1940s: Legal Sports Betting is Born

A decade after Nevada Governor Fred Balzar signed Bill AB 98 into law – allowing for legal gambling within the state’s borders – noted mobster Bugsy Siegel made history in 1941 as the first race disseminator in the state. Siegel’s race wire service provided centralized odds and results for bookies.

The end of the decade saw Nevada officially legalize sports wagering, though betting was limited to turf clubs, which operated independently of the casinos.

1950s: Excise Tax Sends Sportsbooks Running

Just as the popularity of Las Vegas sportsbooks was climbing, the federal government stepped in and turned the industry on its ear. A whopping 10 percent excise tax on sports betting handle – part of the Revenue Act of 1951 – effectively shuttled many legal sports betting operators, while others sought out less-than-legal ways around the tax.

Regulation was the focus of the latter part of the decade. The state legislature created the Gaming Control Board in 1955 to help regulate the ever-growing Nevada gaming industry, while the Gaming Control Act was passed four years later, putting the Nevada Gaming Commission in charge of all gaming licensing.

1960s: Caesars, Howard Hughes Infiltrate NV

The beginning of the decade saw Nevada crack the $200 million mark in annual gross gaming revenue – and it also marked the beginning of an incredible casino expansion.

Caesars Palace’s opening in 1966 was the most notable addition to the Las Vegas casino scene, punctuating a stretch in which Harvey’s, the original Aladdin, Circus Circus, Landmark, International and Monte Carlo all made their debuts. 

Howard Hughes also made his way to Nevada in the 1960s – and promptly bought a handful of casinos, including Sands and Frontier, while also scooping up massive plots of undeveloped land. He was eventually shut down by the U.S. Justice Department, which put an end to his reign after he attempted to buy the Stardust in 1968.

1970s: Welcome Tax Relief for Sportsbooks

As more casinos popped up along the suddenly-expanding Las Vegas Strip in the 1970s, Congress finally made things right after nearly a quarter-century of exorbitant sports betting handle tax. 

After much urging from Senator Howard Cannon, Congress finally decided in 1974 to lower the excise tax from 10 percent all the way down to two percent. One year later, following the state passing a law allowing casinos to host sportsbooks, Union Plaza Hotel and Casino owner Jimmy Gaughan made history as the first man to do so.

In 1977, gaming revenues in Clark County alone surpassed $1 billion, just two years after the state reached the $1 billion plateau.

1980s: The "Mega-Resort" Arrives in Vegas

The 1980s brought more good news for Nevada, as Congress further lowered the tax rate on licensed sportsbooks to 0.25 percent. This, combined with a 6.75 percent state tax on gross gaming revenue and one percent licensing fees, put legal operators in an ideal position to compete with – and ultimately outdo – illegal sportsbooks.

The decade also saw the first “mega-resort” erected on the Las Vegas Strip. The debut of the Steve Wynn-funded Mirage in 1989 – a $750-million project, all told – changed the complexion of the Las Vegas casino scene forever, kicking off an unprecedented expansion in terms of casino development, relocation and tourism.

1990s: Vegas Sees Casino Explosion

Boom.

Vegas as people knew it was long gone by the end of the 1990s, thanks to the addition of more than a dozen themed casino-hotel combos that turned the Las Vegas Strip into the most intriguing stretch of real estate in North America. Among the casinos to make their debuts: Excalibur, Flamingo, Luxor, Treasure Island, Monte Carlo, Stratosphere, Bellagio, Paris, the Venetian and Mandalay Bay.

The state also received a major boost via the 1992 implementation of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), which prohibits states from offering betting on professional or amateur sports. Nevada was exempt from the new law, having been grandfathered out of the final legislation.

2000s: Nevada Rebounds From 9-11

Nevada’s continued growth explosion finally came to a sobering halt after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. Tourist activity dried up significantly, resulting in mass layoffs and shutdowns; it would take until 2005 for things to return to normal.

Even with a massive slowdown earlier in the decade, Las Vegas returned as one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations when people did start to feel safe traveling again. Revenue passed the $10 billion mark annually in 2004, and more casino-hotel combos popped up, including Wynn Las Vegas, Encore Las Vegas and The Palazzo.

2010s: NV Overcomes Recession, PASPA Repeal

The 2010s proved to be the most challenging period for Las Vegas in decades. Early during that period, a deep recession significantly curtailed tourism and spending, resulting in widespread layoffs and major delays to casino construction, expansion or refurbishment projects.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom early in the decade. Assembly Bill 114 was approved by the state legislature, allowing for Nevada to offer Internet-based poker and other gaming opportunities as parts of agreements with other states. Las Vegas also saw the introduction of a wide variety of new venues, including the revolutionary TopGolf at MGM Grand and T-Mobile Arena, future home of the Vegas Golden Knights.

Then came the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to repeal PASPA in 2018, setting the stage for other states to directly compete with Nevada by offering legal online and in-person sports wagering. Nevada responded by putting up a whopping $5.3 billion in handle in 2019, the highest of any state.

2020s: Record Handles Greet NV Sportsbooks

Another decade, another issue that negatively impacted Nevada gaming and tourism. This time, it was the COVID-19 pandemic, which effectively shut down the United States for several months and left the Las Vegas Strip looking like a ghost town.

Ultimately, however, it was just a blip on the sports betting industry; with the return of the NFL and NCAA football in the fall of 2020, Las Vegas posted four straight months with $575+ million in handle to close out the calendar year. That kick-started the best year in the state’s history, as 2021 saw Nevada rack up three months of $1+ billion in handle en route to a $8.23-billion showing for the campaign.

Responsible Gaming in Nevada

Like most states, Nevada’s state gaming authority has put safeguards in place to ensure that bettors have a way out of any potential trouble spots. 

The Nevada Council on Problem Gaming is the state’s main resource for players looking to deal with their gambling issues. The site features many resources, including links to professional treatment and recovery support, community partners and forms to request additional information via printed materials.

Visit the Nevada Council on Problem Gaming site.

Sports Leagues to Bet On

It will come as no surprise to see a rather extensive list of major professional and amateur sports available to Nevada bettors – a list that includes (but is not limited to):

  • NFL
  • NCAA Football
  • NBA
  • NCAA Basketball
  • MLB
  • NHL
  • Golf
  • Auto Racing
  • Tennis
  • Soccer
  • MMA
  • Esports

That doesn’t leave much off the table, but there are two major markets in which wagering in Nevada is prohibited:

  • Politics
  • Entertainment (including major awards ceremonies)

Nevada Teams to Bet On

For the longest time, North America’s four major professional sports leagues wanted absolutely nothing to do with sports betting. Not only have those leagues now welcomed the industry with open arms – two of them have put franchises in Las Vegas.

The NHL and NFL are counting on sports- and betting-mad fans filling their respective venues – and so far, the results have been incredible. And with buzz growing that the NBA and Major League Baseball are both looking for a way to expand into Las Vegas, don’t be surprised to see more pro sports franchises in Nevada down the road.

Here’s a look at Nevada’s two current major professional sports teams:

Las Vegas Raiders Betting

It took just days following the official opening of Allegiant Stadium for the Las Vegas Raiders to align with BetMGM as their official sports betting partner. And that isn’t the only partnership with the Raiders: the Wynn Field Club offers prime real estate for select WynnBET VIPs; its lounge is built like a nightclub (complete with a DJ!)

Vegas Golden Knights Betting

Things have improved considerably for the Golden Knights and T-Mobile Arena since their ill-fated partnership with a Mexico-based tout service – a deal for which the team was rightfully criticized. The 31st NHL franchise has a deal in place with (who else?) BetMGM, and partnerships with Wynn Resorts, IGT, and William Hill/Caesars.

Nevada Retail Sportsbooks

You can’t take 10 steps in Sin City without putting yourself in range of a retail sports betting location.

With over 200 scattered across Las Vegas alone, bettors have a veritable buffet of options at their disposal. And you don’t even need to be in Vegas to enjoy a little sports wagering action, with Reno, Henderson and other locations in Nevada boasting either sportsbook lounges or betting kiosks.

Nevada Sports Betting Tax & Handle

As more states joined Nevada in the legal sports betting pool, curiosity swirled: How would extra competition impact the gambling capital of the United States?

We have enough of a sample now to say that Nevada hasn’t missed a beat. While the state handle isn’t as high as it would be without competition, sports bettors are still flocking to the entertainment capital of the United States and spending significant money at the city’s enormous collection of sportsbooks.

Here’s a look at Nevada’s monthly sports betting handle beginning in 2018:
