Nevada Gaming Control informed this week that in 60 to 90 days the first licensed online poker websites will start its operation within Nevada state. In this first moment we should see names such as Bally Technologies, IGT (International Game Technology), Shuffle Master and South Point Hotel & Casino to be the first online poker websites operating in Nevada.
South Point Hotel & Casino is a famous brick & mortar casino in Las Vegas and they will be the first to be online. South Point Hotel & Casino Las Vegas will run its online poker using a proprietary software for real money poker. The popular hotel casino in Las Vegas will no longer use the free online poker by Zen Gaming Platform and have developed a proprietary online poker software to run in a brand new real money poker environment.
All licensed online poker companies will serve nearly 4 millions Nevada residents and also visitors and will be taxed in 6.7%.
