First real-money operator licences to be awarded in next three months
At an intrastate online poker meeting led by Governor Brian Sandoval this week, the Nevada Gaming Policy Committee indicated it is set to issue the first real-money operator licences within the next three months.
According to Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman, Mark Lipparelli, the board will continue to urge state officials and lawmakers to expand their vision to state to state partnerships in the interests of increasing liquidity and earning greater revenues.
The Gaming Policy Committee, comprising 11 members, voted in favour of recommending language amendments from the 2011 online poker bill and all that remains before play can commence are licensing and technology inspections.
