Nevada has joined Atlantic City in approving the introduction of prepaid debit cards for use in its gaming devices, a move that is being praised by promoters of responsible gambling and casino operators alike. The cards – which are tied to a customer’s rewards account – can be used much like a traditional debit card, except that when the card balance hits zero the customer is forced to stop gambling. In this sense they function just like cash.
