The best bets and resources to make you more profitable
Where to begin with sports betting in Nevada? Nevada’s sports betting history starts in the 1940s when it first became regulated by the state. Since then, they have enjoyed a monopoly on legal sports betting in the US; thanks to federal legislation banning the expansion of sports betting to further states.
However, that federal ban was struck down in 2018 by the US Supreme Court. While Nevada no longer has their monopoly, the state continues to be a leader in consumer options and innovation.
Nevada began to accept mobile sports betting in 2010 when the first sportsbook app was launched in the state. So far, there are a whopping 25 sportsbooks accepting mobile wagers.

Unlike other states such as Virginia and New Jersey, no sports are off limits. The only type of bet that you can’t wager on in Nevada are college player props. But, Nevada colleges are fair game.
Caesars Sportsbook is a great sportsbook, with a ton of good promotions and odds boosts. We like to call Caesars Sportsbook the OddsBoost god because of the sheer volume of odds boosts they have on a daily basis. They also have some really good promos as well, highlighted below.
BetMGM also has a lot of odds boosts and promos to take advantage of. It also has a really nice user interface when scrolling through the different types of markets/props you want to bet. It’s very intuitive and easy to navigate. Some of the promos are highlighted below:
BetRivers also has a nice signup bonus in which they will deposit match up to $250. Other than that, they have nice daily promos and odds boosts that they call “House Specials.” We love betting those House Specials, as they normally have some profitable bets to make.
PointsBet follows suit with the previous books that offer a generous sign-up bonus. New users can get up to $2000 in 2 free bets. They also have daily odds boosts and generally a sleek interface that is easy to navigate.
Sure does! They were not the first state to legalize mobile sports betting, but they certainly have taken the most advantage of it being legal.
More than most states in the US, Nevada has 25 total books available. They are Bally Bet, Barstool, BetMGM, BetMonarch, BetRivers, Betway, BetWildwood, Circa Sports, DraftKings, Elite, FanDuel, FoxBet, MaximBet, PlayMaverick, PlayUp, SBK, Sky Ute, Sports Illustrated, SuperBook, Tipico, Betfred, Caesars, theScore, PointsBet, WynnBET.
Because of how many sportsbooks are legal in Nevada, they also made sure that they would offer fair pricing.
Nevada is easy. You can do everything necessary to get signed up all from your phone/computer. Some states require an in-person sign-up, but Nevada is not one of those states.
They also make signing up and depositing fairly simple as well. This is detailed in the next section, but for the sign-up process, the sportsbook will ask you a couple of personal questions to verify your identity. Then once you are signed up you can set up the payment method by syncing the app to your account.
Only two rules in Nevada.
