Unregulated gambling had taken place in the early Nevada mining towns for some 
time, but was outlawed in 1909 as part of a nation-wide anti-gambling crusade. Due
to the subsequent declines in mining output and the decline of the agricultural sector during the Great Depression, Nevada legalized gambling with the approval from the legislature and the signature of Governor Fred Balzar.
