California Moving into Place with Online Poker

21 June 2011 by admin

I am sure you have heard about Nevada and their bill for intrastate online poker. It is a bill that will give the state the ability to create an infrastructure for online poker within their state. The infrastructure would then be held in reserve until the federal government legalizes online gambling, online casinos or even just online poker.

Now something similar is happening in California. The California Online Poker Association (COPA) has made a deal with a company to provide online poker services to California. Granted, like Nevada, those services will not be offered until the federal government legalizes online poker. So here we have another state who is lining up for the day when the federal government legalizes online poker. It is further driving home the point that online gambling and real money online casinos need to be legalized as the demand and desire is present in the US.

The company that COPA has made a deal with is Playtech. While the terms of the agreement have not been released, thus far it is known that Playtech will provide the coalition of twenty nine tribes and thirty one card rooms with online poker technology and online poker software.

According to the Morongo chairman who is also a member of the COPA Board of Managers, Robert Martin says that following the Black Friday and Blue Monday indictments, now is the best time to set up an online poker system to have in place for when the federal government legalizes online gambling or online poker. The reason this is the best time is because those indictments that have given such a push to legalize online gambling have removed the largest companies from the US market; as it stands they cannot offer their real money services to US citizens.

While the agreement with Playtech is still not operational thanks to online poker being illegal in the state, the pact will be held onto while both COPA and Playtech wait out the federal government.
