Fun Fact: Though common place in the early Nevada mining towns, unregulated gambling was outlawed in 1909 as part of a nation-wide anti-gaming crusade. Due to diminished mining output and the decline of the agricultural sector during the Great Depression, Nevada re-legalized gambling in 1931, with approval from the legislature. It was expected to be a short-term fix. However, re-outlawing gambling has never been seriously considered since the industry has become Nevada's primary source of revenue today.
