Online poker will be available to people within the state of Nevada early next year. The Nevada Gaming Control Board passed regulations today. This will be similar to online and mobile sports betting. Players must be within the state's borders to play.

While this affects the entire state, this is especially good news for Las Vegas. While online poker specific to Nevada is going to make much money, this is the state's chance to show the rest of the country that it can be done just like it is in virtually every other country. If the state pulls this off, it has the ability to create thousands if not tens of thousands of good jobs in Las Vegas and across the state. Here are a couple of articles about it:

Legal Poker Sites

LV Sun

* LVRJ has one too but I will not link to them because of their involvement in Righthaven.

"Six companies already have applications in the regulatory pipeline for licensing: Cantor Gaming, Shuffle Master, International Game Technology, Bally’s Technology, Caesars Entertainment and the South Point"

Hmmm.....

Hmmmm indeed, I didn't notice that. I think LV Sun has this wrong. 888 is the other company which licenses a Caesar's Entertainment online poker room in Europe. Also, it is Bally Technologies, not Bally's Technology.

believe me... they are ALL lined up ready to cash in on the online bounty. buyouts and strategic partners have been brewing for about a year.

I am just wondering what the INTRASTATE game is going to be like. I realize this is foundational material for an eventual federalized system, but for the short term, we're all going to be kicking each other arse for the few crumbs that exist.

This is just the state getting a leg up on what will someday be a legal industry. They cannot actually have on line gaming now because there is no technical way to determine the location of a gambler. IP addresses can be assigned and are assigned all over the world regardless of physical location (interestingly telephone area codes and numbers are no longer geographically restricted either). Until technology is developed to block with 100% certainty out of state users, there will not be internet poker in the USA anywhere unless Federal law is changed which is a possibility due to the fact that foreign gaming sites are thriving. If Bally and other Nevada operations have turn key technology in place and state licenses they will be able to roll at 12:01 AM the day Federal law gets changed and thus quickly establish themselves in what will be a very competitive business.

With a proxy setup, you can be anywhere in the world, and still be "from Las Vegas".

That is true. And with VOIP, you can have a 702 area code anywhere in the world as well.

You can bet on sports online with Station Casinos through a setup where you must be on a Cox internet line. There is no possible way around that limitation. If you are not on a Nevada Cox internet line, you cannot connect to bet on sports. I don't see how poker would be any different. There is also mobile sports betting that uses GPS to make sure that you are within the state. Also the feds stated that online poker and lotteries do not fall under the wire act. That means if other states pass online poker they could network, resolving the issue of Nevada's small population.

Online Poker is coming and Nevada is extremely smart to have everything in place to be the leader. I think Caesar's is well positioned to exploit the WSOP brand to be the leader in the US market right out of the gate. With the new DOJ ruling that the Wire Act does not include anything but sports betting could open the gates. I think there could be many jobs in Las Vegas if they can position themselves as the leader in online poker. Take the bull by the horns and go for it bring this new industry to Nevada. We need the jobs!

How many jobs can this really create? Especially if it remains intrastate only how many people does it really take. I can understand maybe hundreds but thousands or tens of thousands I just don't see where they would be. Any ideas?
