Downtown Las Vegas' Fremont St. Casino Brings a Big Name to the City

Downtown Las Vegas' Fremont St. Casino Brings a Big Name to the City

Las Vegas casinos have had the market cornered on sportsbooks in the city and state thanks to a 2015 law that banned daily fantasy sports operators in Nevada. In October of that year, the Nevada Gaming Control Board issued a notice for FanDuel, DraftKings and any other daily fantasy sports operator to cease operations in the state. The NGCB ruled that DFS is a game of luck not skill, so it constitutes gambling under Nevada law.
