Nevada to Begin Granting Internet Poker Licenses

Nevada’s state Gaming Control Board will begin issuing licenses for operation of Internet poker sites beginning in February.  The licenses would be granted much faster for those casino firms already holding a gaming license in the state.

Once granted a license, companies would only be permitted to offer online poker within the state’s boundaries in specified settings such as in the casinos and racetracks themselves.

Ultimately, operators would allow Internet poker for those outside the state of Nevada should federal legislation pass.  A second House subcommittee hearing on the topic is scheduled for this coming Thursday.
