The headline reads “Nevada takes the lead in interactive gaming” but its had the lead for a couple of years. Online sports wagering has been legal and I’ve been doing it. This just expands the type of online gaming allowed.
The law, which takes effect with Sandoval’s signature, gives Nevada a jump on New Jersey in the rush to compete in the online poker business.
It’s all about poker today and it was all about sports betting a couple years ago and soon it will be all about slot machines and blackjack. Online poker won’t begin right away, there’s still some legal mumbo jumbo to deal with but Nevada has a head start and that’s a good thing for the state.
What does this mean in the future? Let’s first see what other states end up offering the same access to online poker and then other games. As it stands Nevada will still be the only state to offer online sports betting. That’s a win for Nevada.
