Nevada Bill Would Allow Deals With Other States To Create Liquidity For Online Poker Sites
Silver State Takes Formal Step Toward Potential Future Of State Compacts
A bill in Nevada has been introduced that would allow the state to potentially enter into deals with other states in order to create liquidity for online poker sites.
Assembly Bill No. 5 proposes a slight change to existing regulations on online gaming.
Despite not being included in the rules overseeing the industry, business has long echoed the future of interstate offerings of poker — whether under a federal bill or a state-by-state patchwork. Nevada casino giants have always viewed the Silver State as a gateway.
Gov. Brian Sandoval once said he wanted his state to be the “nerve center” for the industry.
Any potential deal would be between two states that have legalized the activity.
Right now, only Nevada and Delaware have authorized web poker. New Jersey could do so this month. California is another jurisdiction in the mix for 2013, but it’s possible it won’t share its massive population, which consists of 37.7 million people.
Nevada could see its first real-money site run games during the first quarter of 2013.
