“There’s not going to be anyone turning on machines to gamble on the Internet either, interstate or intrastate, in poker in the near future,” he continued. “But at least the framework is there to allow the process to continue so we’re ready when and if an applicant before us meets our standards.”
The gaming control board says they have already received some applications for online gaming licenses, even though it’s still illegal on the Federal level. These newly adopted regulations could pave the way for poker sites that operate strictly within the state of Nevada for Nevada residents.
