European giant the latest to bet on Nevada legalization
The giant European online gambling conglomerate Bwin.Party digital entertainment has become the latest internet gambling operator to file for a Nevada internet poker licence, which has been closely monitoring applications.
PartyPoker, a key element in the group, cleared its pre-UIGEA slate with the US Department of Justice some time ago with a hefty $105 million dollar settlement.
Bwin.Party has signed partnership agreements with MGM Resorts International and Boyd Gaming  contingent on the legalization of online poker in the Silver State.
