For those who have enrolled for betting thru an app:

1. What docs you had to submit?
I'm trying to find out if it's enough to be staying in hotel and showing out of state id OR you have to show Nevada id and proof of residence.

2. Cellphone- Need to be Nev. area code?

3. Knowing you "might get too close to the nearby state borders when sightseeing, etc.", is it feasible to leave phone/tablet in your room and remotely access it to wager?

Thank you kindly.

My answers refer specifically to using the race & sportsbook wagering apps. If you're thinking of something else, like some kind of mobile casino game apps like slots on your phone or electronic "roulette" or virtual "dice" or some other hocus pocus, I wouldn't be familiar with that. But answers would be identical for all of the casinos that have mobile wagering apps for their race/sportsbooks.

This will have to be relatively quick & I'll have to rudely ignore follow-up questions for most of the weekend at least. If you should need more detail, others can probably get back to you more timely than I will.

A lot less than that is what's required; you do not need all that. You will need government issued identification, such as a driver license. It does not matter what your State of residence & where your corresponding identification issuer is, whether you and it are from Nevada or some other place. It doesn't matter where you live, just that you have valid ID for wherever it is. You won't need to be a guest of their hotel (for those that have them - William Hill & Cantor aren't connected to any) nor would that whisk you along quicker or simpler, and your comings & goings won't matter except where you are when you wager, which must be electronically verified through the app as being inside Nevada at that moment when you bet.

To open an account expect them to make a photocopy of your ID to go in their file with the simple one page form you will complete, which asks for your name, date of birth, home address, Social Security number or equivalent taxpayer ID number, mailing address, home phone, mobile phone, optional business phone, mother's maiden name or other code word, and your signature certifying that the statements of information you provided are accurate and that you will follow the rules for wagering especially including the requirement to be physically somewhere in Nevada at the time you place a wager.

No, it can be any area code.

No. Bad idea. Best thing about it is it won't work. If you manage to hack around it that could get much worse than "didn't work." You'll have to disable/turn-off the functions on the cell or tablet such as tethering and USB debugging and others that would help to make that feasible, and the app will refuse to load and tell you to do that before you can open it and wager. And if you try to hack around the requirement to be completely geolocated within the State when wagering, with no open doors for fake location monkey business, you stand a good chance of getting your account closed and worse. They have to take that seriously, by very forceful mandate from Gaming Enforcement's licensing requirements, and with strong motivation of their own to avoid Nevada's worst nightmare, which is to be in any way involved or even having the possible appearance of allowing or being involved in violating Federal laws such as the Wire Act, potentially causing Federal involvement in asserting control of the industry in Nevada. Just don't, life will be better that way.

P.S. "Hilton" was about three or four names & owners ago; it was Hilton once upon a time, and later was LVH, and probably was also something else along the way that I'm forgetting at the moment, but now it is "Westgate." They are still "a" or even maybe arguably still something like "the" big dog in the niche business of casino sportsbooks, and personally I still think of them as "Hilton" and I'd rather say that, but many people won't know what you're talking about nowadays. Including at least half the people who work there who've never seen or heard of any "Hilton" name attached to it. So: "Westgate." Same big brick & mortar book, remodeled with new & added stuff in the same place, but "Westgate,"
