LAS VEGAS, Aug. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cantor Gaming®, a leading race and sports book operator in Nevada, announced today that it has launched a Wi-Fi enabled, Nevada-based sports wagering solution for personal computing devices, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones which allows Cantor Gaming customers to wager on sports from anywhere within the state of Nevada. This innovation allows them to wager on any Wi-Fi network within Nevada, without requiring 3G or 4G location capability.


Cantor Gaming's new sports wagering solution for Wi-Fi enabled devices is embedded with sophisticated data-encrypted technology that provides the highest levels of security.  Like Cantor Gaming's Android® application, this solution offers Nevada-based sports betting fans a fast, easy and convenient way to wager wherever they are in Nevada, this time using Wi-Fi, which offers the advantage of faster connection times than a 3G or 4G network. The technology identifies the location of its users and restricts usage to within the state of Nevada, compliant with Nevada and federal regulations.    

"Introducing Wi-Fi enabled sports wagering on personal computing devices was a natural goal after the release of our Android-compatible sports wagering application last October.  This new innovation means that any Cantor Gaming customer with a personal computing device can now wager whenever and wherever they may be within the state of Nevada," said Lee M. Amaitis, President and CEO of Cantor Gaming.  He continued, "This ultimate convenience enhances the gaming experience for our customers and underscores our mission to revolutionize gaming with unique and innovative experiences and continue to lead the way in sports wagering advancements across Nevada."

Customers must have a registered account with Cantor Gaming, which they can open at any of Cantor Gaming's seven Las Vegas race and sports books.
