(Associated Press) - Gamblers could take the games back to their hotel rooms if a new bill passes.

Nevada legislators are considering a bill to allow patrons to gamble on casino-issued mobile devices anywhere in a hotel-casino. Existing law confines gambling to supervised public areas.

The mobile devices would guard against underage gambling by periodically asking players to re-enter their PIN numbers.

Bill proponents say mobile gambling would simply mirror the way people use smartphones to talk and text wherever they go. They describe it as an evolution that bridges traditional card games on a casino floor and Internet gambling.

AB294 is sponsored by 13 members of the Assembly.

No action was taken Tuesday.- Aaron Goldstein, Gambling911.com
