On the 21st of February 2013, the state of Nevada became the first in the United States to legalize interstate online poker and allow state-to-state gaming agreements. The state of Nevada has been fighting to become the first especially beating New Jersey, even if only by a week. Nevada who already is home to Las Vegas, one of the worlds leading gambling centrals, want to pioneer the national Internet wagering efforts.
The new bill that was signed, removes a provision requiring federal legislation or Department of Justice approval before online gaming licenses are made active. The bill is seen as a critical measure to ensure the state’s economy making sure that the state will continue to set the example for gaming regulation. As of now there are a handful of companies that are licensed and operational within the state, but with the new legislation the quantities are expected to grow exponentially over the next short period of time.
Many are hopeful that the Nevada and New Jersey legislation is just the beginning of what is to come, namely the opening of a massive new online market. We will be watching in anticipation. For more information on the topic visit the links below.
