Nevada enjoys fewer perks than from its former position as the only bastion of legal sports betting in the United States.

They might even find themselves in a state where betting is legal. That would burn away a United delay or traffic jam pretty well, especially considering the slate of Thanksgiving Day NFL games and college rivalries that fuel one of the busiest betting weeks of the year.
