A Las Vegas casino is betting that a hand-held device will motivate sports fans to bet more often during big games. The mobile gambling system, dubbed PocketCasino, is offered at Lagasse's Stadium sports book inside the Palazzo casino. The device allows gamblers to bet on whether a team will make the next first down or make a field goal, as well as on the point spreads and money lines on selected games. "If you can use a BlackBerry, you can use this," said gambler Kelly Allbright.
