Nevada gaming attorneys caution lawmakers on sports betting; ‘You really have to give it some serious thought’ Howard Stutz, Nevada Independent · January 15, 2020 at 5:44 am SAN DIEGO – At a weekend conference attended by state lawmakers seeking advice on aspects of casino expansion, a panel of Nevada gaming attorneys tried to tamp down visions of revenues flowing into tax coffers through legalized sports betting. Henderson attorney John Maloney cited November’s Nevada gaming revenue totals. Statewide, casinos collected $31 million from sports betting during the month, a little more than 3 percent of the state’s overall gaming revenue figure of $937.4 million. “You really have to give it some serious thought before taking on sports betting,” said Maloney, who is also licensed in California and represents tribal gaming interests. He pointed out that sports betting revenues amounted to roughly 5 percent of the total wagers placed by sportsbook customers – a single-month record of $614.1 million.
