Leroy’s BlackBerry

December 27, 2010 4:28 PM by Ray Poirier

Mobile gambling with Leroy’s sports wagering systems took a giant step forward last week with the approval of its technology by the Nevada Gaming Control Board, according to an announcement by Vic Salerno, founder and CEO of American Wagering Inc. (BETM).

"American Wagering is pleased that the regulators approved our technology, finding it to be problem free," said Salerno. "We did not have a single issue during our trial period," he added.

Sports bettors using their BlackBerry smart phones have been participating in a field trial that permitted state gaming regulators to evaluate the efficiency and security of the system.

Next step for the company, said Salerno, will be the approval of LEROY’S APP on the Android platform. Sales of smartphones utilizing the Android operating system, said Salerno, "account for the fastest growing segment of the smartphone market with an estimated 200,000 units sold each day.

"Smartphones and other mobile devices will be key products on our development path for the coming year. The approval of the LEROY’S APP is the creation of a new market segment for sports wagering and I am proud to be a part of its creation here in the United States."

Salerno said his company sees the new system as a way to boost the bottom line. He described it as a low cost, convenient, and efficient way of communicating with the customer and taking wagers.

"American Wagering is a company built by bookies for bookies. We are a member of the gaming industry, serving as both a vendor to the casinos and as an independent sportsbook operator. This dual role requires American Wagering to constantly build a better way for bettors to enjoy their wagering experience."
