South Point Casino Becomes First Licensed Casino in U.S. to Operate Online Intrastate Real Money Poker Site

The license was approved unanimously by the Nevada Gaming Commission.
"We are pretty excited to enter the online gaming world," said chief operating officer of South Point Poker Lawrence Vaughan. "This is an incredible step forward. It's going to redefine gaming and what the state can do."
Casino officials say they hope to launch the poker site sometime in October.
Monarch Interactive Inc. of Reno, which controls Atlantis Casino Resort in Northern Nevada, also received an operator's license for online gambling recently.
 
 
South Point Casino Becomes First Licensed Casino in U.S. to Operate Online Intrastate Real Money Poker Site

South Point Poker LLC has become the first casino in the U.S. to be licensed to operate an intrastate poker website that utilizes real money.
 
Unlike many other casinos which plan to do the same, the South Point Hotel and Casino developed its own online poker system and will not have to rely on a third-party company to run its online poker site. The company is also licensed as an interactive gaming manufacturer and service provider.
