World peace may be elusive, but wagering? Now that has some potential.
In a recent turnabout, Nevada gambling regulators just voted to sanction the state’s sports books to offer bets on the 2016 Olympics. It will be the first time in many years that such wagering has been legal.
“It was a move unopposed by anyone in the industry and cheered by the regulators themselves,” noted the Boston Herald. “International sports books in Great Britain, Ireland, and Australia and offshore Internet sites already allow such bets.”
