iGaming Business – The Nevada Gaming Control Board has given its approval to a planned interactive gaming system that could house online poker websites for multiple casinos.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that the move could potentially help to boost the US state’s poker player pool.
Regulators said that the technology, which is operated by online gaming operator 888 Holdings, could serve as a model for the planned system that would run the shared internet gaming network between Nevada and fellow regulated state Delaware.
The approved proposal would see 888 develop an inter-operator poker network that will include Caesars Interactive Entertainment’s WSOP.com and the planned online poker room at Treasure Island.
A separate 888 poker room connected to Treasure Island would also be live on the platform.
While WSOP.com launched last year, Treasure Island’s online poker room is still awaiting approval despite the casino having gained approval for interactive gaming from Nevada regulators.
