AIR DATE: February 15, 2011

Sports books could soon be taking bets on things like election outcomes and winners of reality shows. The Nevada Gaming Commission recently approved rule changes that would allow casinos to take bets on non sporting events. We talk with race and sports book operators about the new rule changes and whether or not betting on things like the Oscars is a good idea.

GUEST
Johnny Avello, Exec Dir of Race and Sports Ops, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore
