Why not have someone make the bet for you? Does Nevada have a law against it?



It is against the law, but it's seldom prosecuted, as it's difficult to prove. In my case, by the time you pay off the beards for their time, it isn't worth the fuss of explaining to them what to bet.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I saw a sign at the sportsbook the other day that read something like, "If you're placing a wager or cashing a ticket on someone else's behalf, tell ticket writer before transaction."

Oh. My. This kind of thing is quite a persistent habit:

Well now.

Exactly where is this sign you "saw" that said "something like" committing a felony for which some people are doing prison time right now? What casino book did you see this at "the other day" and exactly where in that book is it located? I'd like to go there right away to get a pic of it, and I really do mean that I will go and do that right f*ing now, because it won't be there very long at all, owning to the fact that any such book is advertising an extremely serious gaming violation for which they could lose their license if they knowingly allow the transaction.

So please tell us now: Where is this sign? It surely can't be some kind of a magic secret sign that you "saw the other day" so please, where? Don't change the subject or "answer" the question with a question. Where is it? Exactly. This public sign which is "at the sporfsbook." Where?


What persistent habit? That you enjoy being on the wrong end of an argument about sports betting and/or do you just like attacking me for no reason?

Iíll speak to the book myself if you can show any applicable laws that state you canít place or cash out wagers on someone elseís behalf.

So we can promptly toss you out.

Not really sure what you are getting all excited about. I can confirm that this sign is for sure in at least one sports book that I know of. Right next to it is the Nevada statute regarding messenger bettors.

Oh. Okay then. And unlike the apparition of a "please tell a counter clerk that you are involving us in committing a crime" sign, posting the prohibition on messenger betting actually does make some sense. So, where might that be?

Is there any conceivable reason not to mention where? Any possibility of anyone anywhere ever posting a sign that's supposed to be secret? So, where is it?

Just for funsies.

I is not a crime in Nevada to make a bet for another person as long as that person is of age and also in Nevada.

Quote: NRS 463.800


7.  It is unlawful for any person either solely or in conjunction with others:

(a) To knowingly pay or distribute profits or any compensation to a designated individual or equity owner who is not disclosed to the race book or sports pool pursuant to subsection 2;

(b) To knowingly pay or distribute a percentage of revenue derived from the wagering activity of a business entity to a person who is not disclosed to the race book or sports pool pursuant to subsection 2;

(c) To wager with money received from a person who is not disclosed to the race book or sports pool pursuant to subsection 2;

(d) To place a wager on behalf of a person who is not disclosed to the race book or sports pool pursuant to subsection 2; or

(e) To knowingly submit any false information as required by this section.



It would seem that the one making the bet must disclose being a beard. I've never once heard of this actually happening, but not everybody tells me everything.

Hmm. That's truly interesting. From you, I'm inclined to believe it. I'm quite familiar with the longstanding Federal prohibitions on using Nevada's legal books for knowingly laying off wagers from others, which as you probably already know very well NV State Gaming Enforcement has always quite understandably known to be historically very sensitive to avoiding any question of Nevada's gaming industry coming near the edge of any appearance of violating. Explicitly so in the desire to avoid creating any reason or excuse that might have the effect of inviting Federal involvement in the business. But what you said above, if I read it correctly, is purely intrastate, as opposed to interstate... hmmm.

So, if that's right for the case of transactions originating and completing entirely in-state, and therefore not subject to the Federal issues, then maybe some version of the RS sign could rationally exist. And if so, it would surely be a damn shame not to immediately take advantage this great opportunity to show DrawingDead to be a complete fool & general ignoramus as well as a totally gratuitous nasty meannie ashhole guy by saying exactly where, right away.
