“This is a historic day for Bally Technologies, for Nevada, and for the gaming industry,” said Bally Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer Richard Haddrill. “We are very grateful for the Board’s recommendation and are excited about being the first company recommended by a U.S. state for licensing to offer online gaming products and services.”
A final decision will be made at the NGCB’s June 21, 2012 meeting, where the recommendation is scheduled to be reviewed by the Nevada Gaming Commission.
Online casino gamblers will only be able to play from within the state of Nevada and must be 21 or older. The online system will be able to be used for many games such as table games, slot machines, poker, bingo and sports betting.
