The Palms has one of the leading edge sport book operations in Nevada.

Vice President of Global Marketing Tim Richards stated: "We have achieved the first milestone in our server-based initiative related to sports wagering.

We expect full commercial roll out of Rapid Bet Live shortly after the completion of this 30 day field trial in Nevada and internationally for regulated casino wagering markets.
