Birthplace Of World Series Of Poker Applies For Online Poker License
Vintage Vegas Gaming Looking To Be An Operator and Service Provider
The company that owns Binion’s Gambling Hall & Hotel in Downtown Las Vegas has applied for a license to be involved with the state’s upcoming online poker industry, Card Player has learned from the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Binion’s is the birthplace of the World Series of Poker, which first started running in 1970.
Despite being stripped of the WSOP in 2004 by Harrah’s Entertainment, Binion’s, now under the control of an entity called Vintage Vegas Gaming, is looking to dabble in the web poker business. The official list of applicants, with a handful of them licensed already, is now up to about three dozen.
Vintage Vegas Gaming wants to be an operator, service provider and manufacturer in the online gaming business, meaning that it wants to use in-house web poker technology.
Binion’s, on Fremont Street, was last home to the entire summer poker festival in 2004, when professional player Greg Raymer outlasted a field of 2,576 to win $5 million.
The casino was established more than 60 years ago by infamous gambler Benny Binion.
Online poker has only been authorized by state legislatures in Nevada and Delaware. The Silver State could see its first games begin this fall, when web poker licensee South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa likely opens up its real-money doors.
