Nevada Committee To Meet To Discuss I-Poker

Gaming Policy Committee To Meet After Four Year Hiatus


SandovalNevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, once a Silver State gaming regulator, has decided to relaunch the Nevada Gaming Policy Committee, with a plan to discuss online gaming, according to a report from the Associated Press.

Daily fantasy sports will also be a topic of conversion for the 12-member panel consisting of Sandoval and other lawmakers, as well as casino execs and regulators.

Not dates have been set yet. The committee last met in 2012 and also focused on online poker. Nevada eventually launched online poker in 2013.

The Nevada Gaming Policy Committee has no decision-making power, and exists only as a forum to hash out potential recommendations for the state legislature.

Sandoval was the man who signed an online poker liquidity sharing agreement with Delaware. The benefits haven’t been there yet, given the small populations of both states.

Unlike New Jersey and Delaware, Nevada only allows online poker. Pennsylvania is closing in on regulating online casino games and could be another Nevada partner.
