Nevada Companies Need More Time To Finish Internet Poker Technology Testing
South Point, ACEP And Monarch Will Have Until August
The Nevada Gaming Control Board met Thursday in Carson City to consider, among other agenda items, requests by three gaming companies to receive extensions for their respective technology testing on future Internet gaming products.
According to a gaming rule, if regulators approve a firm’s application — in this case an online gaming license — activity must be underway within six months. However, South Point Poker, ACEP Interactive and Monarch Interactive need more time.
Nevada would be the first U.S. state ever to allow licensed and regulated casino industry companies to offer games to those within state lines. Delaware would likely be next.
South Point Poker had hopes — and still might — of being the first online poker site to the Silver State market. The firm went the route of developing its own software. It was granted a license in August 2012, and originally had hoped to launch games in the fall.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, when approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission later this month, the three firms will have until August to complete testing.
