“A Las Vegas sports book works on a very slim margin and its the lowest hold percentage of any casino game offered,’’ he said. “Not to mention it’s very expensive to operate.
“The potential operators out there really need to understand not only how a book operates, but also the financials of a book before they put any kind of legislation together.’’
