Sports betting equity bill concerns raised

The chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, AG Burnett, has raised several concerns over SB346, specifically money laundering, corruption and fraud, according to The Republic.

SB346, a bill that would legalize wagering by private equity groups or entities on behalf of investors, was approved unanimously by the senate in April.

"If there is a scandal or a fund manager closes the book and runs off to the Cayman Islands ... Nevada's reputation may be on the line," Burnett told members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

Current laws in the state permit only individuals to place bets and forbids messenger betting (paying someone to place a bet on your behalf). Burnett feels that should the bill pass, it would directly contradict these existing laws in the state.

SB346 is sponsored by Sen. Greg Brower, R-Reno. Brower's bill aims to grab a piece of the alleged $380 billion that is wagered illegally on sports annually.

But doesnt the bill also state that every person tied to that money must be listed on an account in the casino or with the state? Just have the groups sign up before a bet is made and have the casino or the state verify with each person listed that they are aware and approve of the money going to a betting pool. They also could be asked if they know and are aware of the person placing the bets.

If this passes would it mean that out of state betters could place wagers thru a clearing house within the state of Nevada.
