Nevada to decide on interactive gaming licenses

Share with:

The Nevada Gaming Commission is set to discuss interactive gaming licenses in today's policy hearing at 10AM PST. If all goes well, the first official interactive gaming licenses could be handed out — Interactive Game Technology and Bally Technologies Inc. are among the hopeful operators in line.

On June 8th, SBR reported that the Nevada Gambling Control board recommended Bally Technologies Incorporated and International Game Technology (IGT) to be the first companies to receive interactive gaming licenses. The service provider's license will allow the companies to power Las Vegas casinos with iGaming technology, as well as online poker infrastructure. SBR interviewed Executive Director of Poker Player Alliance John Pappas, who was optimistic that operations would be rolling by Q4 2012.

Also discussed in today's hearing will be the completion of WillHill's acquisition of three Nevada properties — including Leroy’s Horse & Sports Place, Lucky’s Sportsbook, and Club Cal Neva Satellite Race and Sports book.
