(Las Vegas, NV) — A new sports betting app has been approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission. American Wagering, which does business as Leroy’s Sports Books, is now the first US-based gaming firm to allow customers to bet from their iPhones. The free app is available at the iTunes store, but users must register at one of the state’s 77 Leroy’s outlets first. American Wagering plans similar apps for the iPad and Windows-based smart phones and tablets.
