Nevada Olympic Ruling

This of course included the Olympics and the Winter Youth Olympics since none of the participants are professional. In 2016 Nevada very quietly passed a law which excluded the Olympics in all forms from this law. This means that punters from America and other countries can now place bets on the Winter Youth Olympics via Nevada based bookies.
This can be done in two ways. If you wish to be old school you can physically go down to the nearest bookie and place a bet. Alternatively you can use one of the many internet betting sites which are available to Americans and people from around the world.
