Las Vegas-based Cantor Gaming announced in late November that it has received approval from the State of Nevada Gaming Commission to begin operations of its mobile gaming system.

Cantor Gaming, an affiliate of global financial services company Cantor Fitzgerald, announced earlier in the month that it had successfully completed a field trial of its gaming device eDeck at The Venetian in Las Vegas and was expected to get this final approval from the NGC -- as was reported in the Nov. 14 issue of GamingToday.

Following a series of rigorous tests, the NGC Board recommended the approval of the system, and Cantor Gaming can now offer its state-of-the-art mobile gaming products to all casinos in Nevada.

Cantor has been making some big noise in the gaming industry of late, acquiring Las Vegas Sports Consultants and signing a long-term agreement to be the exclusive provider of mobile gaming services to the coming $1 billion M Resort in Henderson, scheduled to open in Spring of 2009.

The company also submitted a regulatory application to the NGC to run the new sports book at the M Resort.

More on Cantor’s plans to run the M Resort’s sports book as well as the progress with the mobile gaming product in its early stages will be covered in a future issue of GamingToday.
