    Default Nevada residents not interested in online gambling

    According to a study by UNLV's International Gaming Institute, about 3.7 percent of Nevadans have gambled online in the past five years, 65 percent of those who hadn't said they are not interested in gambling online, and 88 percent said they wouldn't gamble online if it was legal and regulated by the state.

    The Gaming Control Board is using this data to consider whether they should create regulations for intrastate online gaming.

    I share the skepticism in the truthfulness of these responses (expressed at the bottom of the article).

    I would like to see these responses broken down by the respondent's distance to a gambling establishment (casino / poker room / bingo hall / whatever). One can make a reasonable argument that interest in online gambling is partially a function of access to traditional, land-based gambling establishments. If you can drive 2 miles to a casino (or walk!), why hassle with online gambling and its associated banking hassles and perceived illegality.
