The Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) has voted unanimously to recommend sports betting and iGaming operator FSB for a Nevada gaming license.
The matter now heads to the Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC) for final approval.
Should FSB receive a license—known as a Manufacturers and Information Service Provider license—the company would be authorized to offer both sports betting and iGaming in the state.
FSB CEO Dave McDowell said in a statement: “We aspire to be part of the long-term sports betting and iGaming story in Nevada and North America generally and this licensing application clearly communicates our deep ambitions.”
He added, “Securing regulatory approval in Nevada is a true trust stamp on the quality of a service provider and as a Tier 1 supplier with a laser focus on key regulated global markets this is a jurisdiction we simply have to be present in.”
Ian Freeman, chief revenue officer for FSB, said that the company “identified Nevada as a key strategic state,” and added that the recommendation “represents a significant step forward towards realizing our commercial goals.”
