The second legal online poker site should be launched in Nevada by 888.com (888 Casino)and Caesars Entertainment Corporation while the 2013 World Series of Poker Tournament is running. It is proposed that the new real money poker site would be launched early in July just before the WSOP Main Event takes place. This new online poker room will bring together Gibraltar based 888.com’s software and online gambling experience and the American Caesars Entertainment Corporation’s high profile which should guarantee the success of Nevada’s second real money poker site.
Online poker has only recently become legal in the State of Nevada and now two companies which are leaders in their respective fields are to join forces in order to launch the state’s second real money online poker web site. 888.com hasn’t carried out any online gambling operations in the United States since these were banned under the Unlawful internet Gambling Enforcement Act 2006 and so it should not have any difficulty obtaining the remaining approval from the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
Caesars entertainment Corporation is extremely well known as a major land based casino and hotel operator. The real money internet poker venture to be launched by the partnership formed by these two companies will be the first step to placing them among the biggest online gambling providers in the United States.Only three states in America, New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada, have so far legalised online gambling and each has some sort of restrictions. In New Jersey only land based casinos that already exist can apply for a licence to operate an internet casino. Delaware only allows state owned casino and lottery operators to provide online gambling. Nevada only permits online poker and not all online casino games that are allowed in the other two states.So far Nevada is the only state that has a real money online poker room that is open for business. At the end of April Ultimate Poker.com was launched and it recently held the first legal real money online poker tournament which was very successful.
