LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- There's a battle brewing between two groups with very deep pockets in our state on one side big gaming in Nevada and on the other is a new player in town who wants to make it easier for gamblers to place a sports wager.

It's a convenient way to place a sports bet when you're on the go but the big casinos believe it's unfair competition and they want them gone.

We're talking about sports betting kiosks you see at local bars. The Nevada resort association is backing a bill that would eliminate the machines.

As News 3's Sergio Avila shows us, those who run the kiosks say they just create more revenue for the state.
