LAS VEGAS, July 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Cantor Gaming announced today that it is taking wagers on the 2011 World Series of Poker ("WSOP") main event. Â Cantor Gaming is allowing bets on all nine finalists, known as the "November Nine". Â WSOP represents the first non-sports event that the Nevada Gaming Control Board has approved for wagers since it issued gambling regulations for non-sports proposition bets in January 2011. Â
Lee Amaitis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cantor Gaming, commented: "This is a landmark event and a significant step for Cantor Gaming and our industry. Â Ever since Nevada regulators adopted innovative new rules earlier this year, we have keenly awaited the opportunity to offer exciting new wagers on non sport-events to the public. Â We are passionate about supporting the World Series of Poker, an exciting, high profile tournament with strong international appeal. Â We hope this is the first of many similar events that we can support." Â
The championship began on July 7 and the final table will be played November 5-7, 2011 at the Rio in Las Vegas. Â Cantor Gaming will take bets on all nine finalists until the first hand is dealt at the tournament's final table. Â Wagers are available at all of Cantor Gaming's sports books in Las Vegas.
