Question by Ben J: Why is sports gambling only legal in Nevada?
Why in Nevada and not other states? Was Nevada grandfathered in? Why can’t another state allow sports gambling? Why is Nevada special?

Best answer:

Answer by John H
I think the reason is that sports gambling is so damn hard to regulate. Not to say that other games of chance aren’t difficult to regulate like Poker, Blackjack, Craps, Baccarat etc, but there is so much more money involved in sports gambling than these games. I don’t think that anybody considers Nevada “special” in and out of the fact that one state is difficult enough to regulate let alone 50. Besides that, many states allow wagering on sports such as dog or horse racing. Just because it isn’t legal doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t tolerable. NASCAR or Superbowl pool anyone?
