Caesars IPO in 2012 Includes Provision for Legalized Internet Poker in US

Caesars is preparing an IPO for the upcoming year 2012 and, in it, there is a provision for legalized Internet poker in the United States, which the casino giant obviously believes will be bountiful to its future business. 


We believe that additional jurisdictions will legalize online gaming due to consumer demand, a broader understanding of the need to regulate the industry and to generate income through taxes on gaming revenue. As such, we support efforts to regulate the online gaming industry to ensure that consumers are protected. We believe that the potential for online gaming is substantial and believe that we will command, at a minimum, our fair share in any legal jurisdiction. An H2 Gaming Capital study conducted in 2010 projects that the global online gaming market will grow to $36 billion in revenues by 2012. We believe that the largest opportunity in online gaming in the near term is the legalization of online poker in the United States. [emphasis added]
