Golden Nugget Gets OK To Run Online Poker

One Of Las Vegas' Oldest Casinos Looking At Online Gaming


On Thursday, the Golden Nugget, located in Downtown Las Vegas, acquired a license to operate real-money web poker. It will run its games via a partnership with Bally Technologies.

The brick-and-mortar property is one of the city’s oldest casinos, opening way back in 1946. The Golden Nugget started offering a free-play poker site earlier this yer.

Its games were run by Chiligaming, which has been acquired by Bally Technologies.

In addition to the Golden Nugget, Fertitta Interactive, which is under the umbrella of Station Casinos, as well as Boyd Interactive Gaming, received licenses Thursday.

Bally Technologies, a business-to-business provider, was licensed this summer.
