OTD March 19 - Nevada gambling
32 / 42
State of Nevada

1931: Gambling is once again legalized in Nevada. Unregulated gambling had been common in the early Nevada mining towns but was outlawed in 1909 as part of a nationwide anti-gambling crusade. The state decided to legalize gambling again because of declines in the mining and agricultural sectors during the Great Depression. Pictured is the first gaming license issued in the state.
