Nevada Online Poker Bill Signed

15 June 2011 by admin

Residents of Nevada have to be quite happy. In the early part of this week Governor Brian Sandoval signed a couple of bills related to online gambling. One pertains to giving guests at casinos the ability to gamble from within their hotel rooms, the other I think is more exciting.

Assembly Bill 258 is the bill mentioned here on Online Casino Suite a couple of weeks ago. This is the bill that will require the Nevada Gaming Commission to create a regulation infrastructure for online poker for the state. This same bill also requires the Gaming Commission to set up a licensing process and fees for those looking to apply for an online poker license. Those licenses would also have to be required for manufacturers of equipment for implementing online poker. The Gaming Commission also has to work into the regulation infrastructure rules for Nevada’s online poker to “ensure the protection of consumers, prevent fraud, guard against underage and problem gambling, and aid in law enforcement efforts.”

That might sound like a tall order to have done in a little more than six months, but the Gaming Commission is confident that they can meet the deadline: “We are aware of the deadlines for setting up the procedures we must follow for those regulations. I do not see any difficulty meeting those deadlines,” said Peter Bernhard, who is the Chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission.

Now that the bill is signed it needs to be approved by the state gaming regulators but no one sees any hang ups happening there. Looks like Nevada is moving onward into the next stage of the top online gambling industry. Their online poker infrastructure will be created by January and then placed on hold. The infrastructure will not be actively used until the federal government approves online gambling or at least online poker.
