VERNON HILLS, IL -- Incredible Technologies reports that, for the second year in a row, the Nevada Gaming Control Board has granted approval for all 12 licensed Nevada Boyd Gaming sports books to offer wagers on the qualifiers competing in the 2019 Golden Tee World Championships.

From June 21 through 23, 74 of the best video golf players in the world will leave their home bars and square off at the Golden Tee World Championship in The Orleans Hotel and Casino (Las Vegas, NV). The Orleans Casino sports book and all other Boyd Gaming Nevada properties will post odds and offer wagers for the high-profile event.

Odds will be posted in advance of the event, with bets being accepted until 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 22. At noon, the competition will begin with a five-course qualifier to seed the brackets for match play. Head-to-head match play will start at 11 a.m. on Sunday, June 23, and a winner will be crowned around 6:30 p.m.

Golden Tee Golf, designed and manufactured by Incredible Technologies, first appeared in 1989 and began offering online skill contests in 1995. More than $100 million in prize money has been awarded to millions of players through online skill-based contests.

“Golden Tee is the original esport,” said IT Amusements vice-president Don Pesceone. “The skill level of our competitive field has never been stronger, and the World Championship event is the crown jewel of video golf. Offering the ability to wager on these video athletes adds a whole new level of intensity to an already action-packed event.”

The three-day event is open to the public, and much of the action will be streamed live on YouTube, Twitch and Facebook Live.

Licensed books electing to offer these wagers must provide the Enforcement Division with notification of terms via email at ops@gcb.nv.gov. Information on Golden Tee and the World Championship, including live championship leaderboards, can be found on www.goldentee.com.
