USFantasy, the first government approved and regulated fantasy sports wagering operation in this country will be up and running Wednesday, company president Vic Salerno told GamingToday Monday afternoon.
This week (NFL Week No. 2) it will be available at an expected 14 Nevada locations including many Caesars and MGM properties along with most CG Technology locations and the Westgate. Mobile wagering in Nevada is expected to be available in the near future, Salerno said. Forty-seven more state-wide locations will be joining next week (NFL Week No. 3).
USFantasy is based on the pari-mutuel betting model used in horse racing in which wagers, after a pre-determined take-out, are distributed to the winners.
More details will be available later this week at gamingtoday.com on USFantasy and its contests, featuring a $1 bet that could net a $1-million payoff.
