Nevada is the only state in the union known for gambling more than anything else.
Yes, online gambling in Nevada is perfectly legal. The state has hundreds of legal sportsbooks for gamblers to choose from, while online poker is also legal and thriving in Nevada.
Online casino gambling in Nevada, however, is not licensed or regulated. The good news is many of the hundreds of land-based casinos offer their own social casinos. These are set up just like real-money online casinos but don’t require a financial deposit.
Players instead receive tokens and sweeps coins upon signing up at top social casinos like WinStar, LuckyLand and Chumba. This form of legal online gambling in Nevada has table games and slot machines just like you’d find at a land-based casino. And players can win prizes with sweeps coins through various contests, or even credits toward land-based casinos in Nevada.
These are the best options for online casino gambling in Nevada, and the only legal ones at that.
While there is no set timetable for legal online casinos in Nevada, one assumes it could happen in the coming years with so many other states regulating online casinos. It was never a big issue due to all the brick-and-mortar casinos, legal online sports betting and online poker. But the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision to do away with the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act gave individual states the power to legalize online sports gambling.
Many have since done so and several have included legal online casinos in their legislation. We’ll see if Nevada follows suit down the road.
In the meantime, social casinos are by far the best option for legal online casinos in Nevada. Stick with our recommended list of social casinos and you’ll avoid a number of issues with illegal offshore casino sites. These are not regulated and therefore have no legal obligation to pay customers back in a timely fashion, handle customer service issues or properly secure players’ data and personal information.

Most of the top Nevada gambling operators associated with land-based casinos in the state already offer robust social casinos. It stands to reason these same operators like Caesars and MGM would be well-positioned to move into the real-money online casino space in Nevada should the state decide to regulate the practice.
For now, some of these social casinos even offer land-based casino comps players can win with tokens or sweeps coins. MGM Mirage’s MyVegas app allows Nevada residents to win things like comped meals, hotel discounts and credit for real-money wagering at its land-based casinos.
If legal online casino play comes to fruition, it would definitely include mobile apps. Top online sportsbooks like William Hill, MGM, Caesars and others offer comprehensive mobile apps for sports betting and have the capabilities to do the same for casino.
Mobile apps for online gambling in Nevada will certainly be offered on the casino side if and when the states decide to include online casino as a legal option alongside sports betting and poker.
Should online gambling in Nevada include real-money casino gambling in the near future, here are some of the games that might be available for players.
Nevada is one of just five states that doesn’t have a state-run lottery. Legislation to approve a Nevada lottery has been unsuccessful over the decades. If that changes, most states now offer online lottery apps where players can buy tickets online. Nevada would presumably do the same.
Eligible Nevada residents and visitors can play real money poker via WSOP Nevada. The only current Nevada poker site offering that permits a full array of player options, the site satiates veterans and rookies alike.
The WSOP online poker room quickly became the nation’s largest after its launch in 2013 and one of the best avenues for all online gaming in Nevada. The industry leader has a huge variety of No-Limit Hold’em, Omaha and Cash Study games. WSOP’s repertoire of options is much of the reason no other poker sites have gained much of a foothold in Nevada.
To compete in the games, a poker player must be 21 and physically located within Nevada. Though Nevada is one of only three states currently with legal online poker, a player pooling agreement with New Jersey and Delaware means people in the state can also compete against WSOP customers physically located in the other two jurisdictions in the compact.
In the near future, Pennsylvania is expected to join this compact, meaning there will be more opportunities for Nevada online poker players to join other gaming entities and go head-to-head with additional players in more jurisdictions.
There are more than 160,000 slot machines across Nevada’s land-based casinos, but online slots are not regulated. Social casinos offer plenty of slots with all the bells and whistles players are familiar with, while also presenting the opportunity to win prizes and even real cash.
Online blackjack is available at social casinos and has the same rules as you’ll find with typical American blackjack. It’s a great way for bettors to practice and get more comfortable with different card combinations. Plus, you can play a lot faster at online social casinos with no one else at the table.
Online roulette is a popular game that features all the same bets players are familiar with – red/black, even/odd, high low, individual numbers and more. Systems like the Reverse Martingale or James Bond strategy can also be applied at the online roulette wheel.
Live dealer is a niche section of the online casino industry in which blackjack and roulette games are dealt by an actual human via video transmission. It’s only available in a few states and can be hard to find even in states with legal online casino gambling.
If Nevada ever moves to regulate online casino play, we already know what to expect as far as payment options.
Most legal online casinos now accept debit/credit cards like Visa and Mastercard. This is the most familiar deposit method for players, but it’s not always successful. Some banks still block these transactions even in states where online casino play is legal. Players who want to go this route should contact their bank rather than the casino if they have any issues.
Prepaid cards are also a popular option for legal online casino deposits. The Play+ card and similar options allow players to deposit money to the card directly. They can then use the Play+ card to deposit with the casino, a particularly useful option for those who run into trouble with debit/credit cards. You can also withdraw winnings back on to a Play+ card and access your money at an ATM.
Many online casinos also accept PayPal. Players with existing accounts can simply transfer money from their PayPal to the online casino. Those who don’t have accounts can easily sign up in just a few minutes and go this route.
Some casinos also accept bank transfers and ACH payments, which might take a little more time than the options listed above.
Online gambling in Nevada includes tons of options for sports betting and poker. Online casino offerings would be similarly diverse. It’s important for players to shop around various online casinos and see which ones they like, especially when it comes to welcome bonus offers.
This is essentially a first-time signup incentive that works great for players, with all sorts of bonuses and promotions available.
Some online casinos will offer a matched deposit for players and double their initial deposit up to a certain amount like $1,000 as a welcome bonus. This is great for players who want to deposit a high amount as it essentially doubles their money from the start. Any winnings from this bonus go into the players account as real money, though they might need to wager a certain amount of their own funds before the bonus kicks in. Always read the terms and conditions of all bonus offers.
Some online casinos offer a no-deposit bonus for a new gambler, which is typically smaller than a first-time deposit bonus and has lower playthrough requirements.
For online slot machine enthusiasts, several online casinos provide free spins for new players. These are basically credits players can use for slot machines at no risk. If they don’t create a profit, the player loses nothing. Any winnings from the free spins result in real cash in the players’ account.
Refer-a-friend bonuses work like any other referral program and can be found at several online social casinos. If players bring friends along and get them to sign up, they receive a bonus in their own account that can be used like real money. The new player might have to wager a certain amount before the referral bonus kicks in.
These are just a few examples of promotions and bonuses for online casinos. Make sure to look at multiple options from various online casinos and decide which is best for you.
Nevada passed its first gambling bill in 1931 when then-Gov. Fred Balzar approved Bill 98, legalizing a number of gambling games that had previously been played in secret. This was a reaction to the Great Depression and served as the first step in Nevada’s immense gambling history.
The state took it a step further and legalized horse racing and sports betting in 1949. It would remain the only state in the U.S. to take legal sports gambling bets until 2018.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board was first created in 1955 to oversee and regulate the state’s growing gambling scene, giving way to the current regulations in place at the hundreds of land-based casinos throughout the state.
In 1967, Nevada changed casino legislation to allow corporations to own casinos without requiring a license for each individual stockholder. This is the first step in allowing for the massive casino resort properties that line the Las Vegas strip.
In 2011, Nevada offered legal online poker after the Department of Justice reinterpreted the Federal Wire Act of 1961. They ruled it only applied to sports betting, and Nevada soon took advantage by offering online poker.
The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act in 2018, allowing individual states the right to legalize sports gambling. Many have since moved into the online sports gambling scene as well, but Nevada still has the most robust sports betting scene in the nation.
The Supreme Court overturns the federal ban on sports betting, which allows other states to take legal sports bets for the first time since the law was enacted in 1992. Though seven additional states take bets this year, Nevada remains the most lucrative sports wagering market in the country in 2019.
The Department of Justice reinterprets the Federal Wire Act of 1961, arguing it only applies to online sports betting, not any other form of gaming. Nevada authorities promulgate regulations, and by 2013 the state is offering poker as part of an interstate compact with New Jersey and Delaware.
Nevada becomes the fastest growing state in the U.S. by population, and its legal gaming revenue nears $2.5 billion annually. Though the growth of Native American and riverboat casinos in other states at the end of the decade cuts into state revenues, state officials and gaming stakeholders continue to create new entertainment and gaming offerings that attract visitors.
The Nevada Legislature allows public corporations to own gaming facilities without having to license each individual stockholder. This sets the basis for a new wave of casino owners and lays the groundwork for the legendary properties that open in the state in the next half century.
Lawmakers create the Nevada Gaming Control Board to regulate gaming in the state. Along with the Nevada Gaming Commission, created four years later, the state regulatory bodies help oversee the rapid development of the industry in the ensuing decades and become the standard bearer for other states that legalize gaming.
Nevada legalizes bets on horse racing as well as team sports. It will be the only state to legally take bets on sporting events until 2018.
The nation’s first, and one of its most robust, gaming bills is signed into law. Designed as a way to attract new residents during the Great Depression, this bill will eventually allow the Nevada gaming market to become a global leader and remains the most sweeping gambling bill passed by any state in the 20th century.
Nevada’s legal sports gambling industry is still thriving more than 70 years after it first legalized the practice. There are hundreds of sportsbooks at the state’s various casinos, many of which also offer online sports betting and mobile apps.

Nevada ruled daily fantasy sports a form of gambling, one which thus requires a license. Popular DFS sites like DraftKings and FanDuel have not applied for those licenses and there are currently no legal, operational online Daily Fantasy Sports options in the state.
