The Nevada Gaming Commission has approved operational rules that will allow patrons to gamble at select casino sites using handheld wireless devices. The devices can play wireless poker and blackjack, among other games. The devices will be licenced for use in public casino areas such as pools, lounges, bars, restaurants and convention areas. An obvious continued concern remains the potential access to the devices by minors. Nevada is the first jurisdiction in the U.S. to approve wireless gambling devices.
