LAS VEGAS, March 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- American Wagering, Inc. (OTCBB: BETM) (AWI), the parent company of Leroy's Sportsbook (Leroy's), the largest independent sportsbook operator in Nevada, and Computerized Bookmaking Systems, Inc. (CBS), a leading provider of race and sports technology, is pleased to announce that Leroy's has received approval from the Nevada Gaming Control Board to offer its mobile account wagering application, the LEROY'S APP™, on the Apple iPad®. This approval is a major milestone in sports betting history as it is the first mobile sports betting app available for download through the Apple App Store and is accessible with a Leroy's wagering account.
The LEROY'S APP is available on the five top selling US mobile devices - iPhone®, iPad, Android™ smartphones, Android tablets and BlackBerry® smartphones that are furnished by the top four US mobile carriers - Verizon®, Sprint™, AT&T® and T-Mobile®. With the addition of the LEROY'S APP for the iPad, Leroy's offers mobile account wagering to over 93% of the mobile market in Nevada. The convenience-driven application allows Nevadans to enjoy legal sports betting from the widest range of mobile devices available.
"I am grateful for the approvals from the Nevada Gaming Control Board and Apple to allow the LEROY'S APP for the iPad to be introduced to Nevada. Our market penetration in the state of Nevada has been accomplished both on budget and on schedule. We are proud of our achievements in both mobile and kiosk wagering attained in the past year and a half. In September 2011, Leroy's introduced account wagering kiosks in PT's and Sierra Gold taverns. I am delighted with the outstanding working relationship that we have established with Blake Sartini and his team at Golden Gaming. The customer response to both products has been phenomenal," stated Vic Salerno, Chief Executive Officer of American Wagering.
"This is just another validation that American Wagering is the absolute leader in mobile wagering in the US. Our sports bettors enjoy our convenience-driven technology and wagering solutions. Since we have introduced our product in the Nevada market, customer patronage has been astonishing. Our clients tell us that they will be with Leroy's for life. Even though football season is now over, we are amazed at the account wagering sign-up response for our mobile product. There is no question that mobile betting will ultimately outdistance traditional sports book wagering in all markets where sports betting is legal. Our unique patent-pending location technology allows us to go into any jurisdiction with confidence that we can limit sports betting access to a particular state or region. Leroy's has operated in Nevada for over thirty-three years. We are committed to customer service," added John English, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Public Affairs.
