Legal Internet Casino Sites In Nevada

Online gambling is now legal in the state of Nevada and new sites are accepting online casino players from the USA. On the 21st of June 2012, International Game Technology (IGT), which is based in Reno, and Bally Technologies Inc. (BYI), based in Las Vegas, received approvals to operate in this state. London-based William Hill Plc (WMH) also got a traditional licence in Nevada after they purchased three businesses that collect sports bets there in the year previous.

Nevada's online gambling sites also include 888, a UK operator that specialises in casino, bingo and poker games, who received their license in March 2013. This licence will allow 888 to launch their own brand and as well as a number of their partners. This means that 888 will be able to power Caesars Interactive Entertainment's WSOP poker brand, and support the slot machine manufacturer WMS Gaming to offer online slots for their customers.

Other Online Gambling Sites

The new laws that were signed into power in February 2013, mean that residents of this state can now legally gambling online. On of the popular sites making the headlines is The services are restricted to players at least 21 years old and physically located in Nevada. Station Gaming (Ultimate Poker) and Caesar's (World Series of Poker) were the first companies to launch legal online poker operations in the state.

A lot of companies have already secured licences including Shuffle Master (SHFL Entertainment Inc). This company is allowed to provide software and technical support to any licensed online poker provider in Nevada. Poker Trip is another licence holder and they are the parent company to several online poker portals. They operate several different websites in the poker and gambling genre such as and Treasure Island is another and they first opened their doors back in 1993. Because they don't have an online gaming presence, they have entered into partnership with 888 Holdings, who will supply their online poker room with the software and support that is required. 888 seem to be positioning themselves as one of the key software providers in the US having already entered into deals with not only Treasure Island, but also Caesars Entertainment for their website, as well as winning the rights to provide Delaware with their online gaming platforms along with their partner in that market, Scientific Games.

While the majority of focus for the moment is on online poker websites, this is set to change in the coming months with more games being added to the line up and more Nevada online casinos going live. At the moment the key player is UltimatePoker and players can enjoy No-Limit Hold'em and Fixed-Limit Hold'em games as well as Sit and Go tournaments. There are plenty of tournament promotions including freerolls and the $10,000 Sundays. This is just the start of things to come and more legal internet casinos in Nevada will be launching soon. It is worth noting that only residents from Nevada can deposit and play at these sites.
