Caesars Entertainment Group expects to go live with online poker in Nevada this summer through website WSOP.com. Caesars intends to heavily promote the brand new online poker site throughout the 2013 World Series of Poker, which begins May 29. Nevada is the only current US state to offer legal internet poker.
"We anticipate our arrival to be sometime this summer," Seth Palansky of Caesars Interactive stated to Reuters.
888 Holdings Plc will provide the technology utilised by WSOP.com. 888 was licensed for internet gaming in Nevada this year.
SBR reported on February 22nd that Nevada made history when Governor Brian Sandoval signed a bill legalizing online poker gambling.
On the opposite side of the country, New Jersey also looks to setup their own internet poker and gambling games, having passed similar legislation shortly after Nevada. Industry insiders believe New Jersey is still a number of months away from going live. Other states such as Delaware and California are also eager to join in.
The first official online poker site in Nevada - UltimatePoker.com - announced through CEO Tobin Prior that more than 1.5 million poker hands have been dealt since launching April 30th. The game requires a player to be 21 years of age or older and to be physically present in Nevada.
