Nevada Gives Possible Go Head for IGT License

By Maria McCoyGoogle

The fate of the legalization of online casino games in the state of Nevada continues to move in a positive direction. This week, the Nevada Gaming Control Board, the first regulatory body in the United States with the ability to award interactive gaming licenses, gave a nod to IGT for possible licensure. This comes after earlier reports that it also gave Bally Technologies a similar nod.

If approved by the board, both IGT and Bally’s will receive the ability to establish a partnership with Nevada casino operators to provide a top rated online casino games site to their players.

IGT has operated successfully in the casino games online industry for over a decade. It is the only supplier in the United States that manages a flourishing business to business poker network.

Reports have circulated that the Nevada Gaming Commission is likely to determine which top rated online casino companies will receive licenses at their meeting at the end of June.

Patti Hart, IGT chief executive officer commented, “We are honored to be one of the first recommended providers by the Nevada Gaming Control Board. This important step will allow IGT to better support our customers as they expand their offerings to their players to include interactive wager based entertainment. We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this exciting and necessary expansion of gaming in the US.”
