    Wireless Casinos

    Regulators hope to give final approval by February or March to rules that will enable Nevada to become the first state to license wireless, handheld gambling devices for use in the state's hotel-casinos. The rules are based on a new law, signed in June by Gov. Kenny Guinn, that permits the devices only in public areas of casinos that have 100 or more slot machines and offer at least one other game. They're barred from hotel rooms or any other private areas. State Gaming Control Board Chairman Dennis Neilander says the proposed regulations will be discussed by the board's parent state Gaming Commission in January and come up for final approval either in February or March. Once the rules are in place, the board and commission can start reviewing applications. Companies expressing interest have included Cantor G&W (Nevada) LP, an affiliate of Cantor Fitzgerald LP, the New York-based financial services company that pressed for the new law. The company says an adaptation of its interactive bond-trading technology will work for casino gambling.

    Others interested in the new gambling option include Louisiana-based Diamond I Inc., which has developed its own device; Reno-based International Game Technology, the world's largest manufacturer of slot machines; and FortuNet Inc., a Las Vegas-based gambling device manufacturer. "We won't approve something unless we're confident that it will operate where it's allowed to and not operate where it's not allowed to," Neilander said. Cantor representatives worked quietly on their innovative proposal months in advance of the 2005 Legislature, and the result was a measure that had overwhelming support from lawmakers. Proponents say the remote gambling devices will help Nevada casinos stay competitive despite the expansion of Indian casinos, Internet betting and of resorts elsewhere in the country and around the world.
