South Point Poker anticipates being the first “real money” intrastate online poker site in the US with a launch expected by fall.

The site, which is run by the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, is currently undergoing rigorous testing of its new software.  South Point CEO Michael Gaughan told eGaming Review Magazine last week that his online venture would ultimately dump the Zen Gaming Platform the “free to play” online poker room currently operates on.

”It (the software) was complicated and hard to download,” he said. “[The poor results were] partly down to the provider and partly because I lost interest in it when it didn’t grow as fast as I thought it would.”

South Point Poker will initially be available to those residing in Nevada but Gaughan signaled that he will be looking to obtain licensing in other states such as Delaware, which have also passed measures allowing for legalized “real money” online poker.
