Nevada Gaming Control Board Approves Two More Applications

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board has approved two online gambling license applications on Wednesday, moving industry giants Paddy Power and Shufflemaster closer to getting their Nevada online poker licenses.

Shufflemaster had applied for a Nevada online gaming license as both a manufacturer and provider, and now heads to the Nevada Gaming Commission, who will evaluate the company's application and ultimately make the decision as to whether or not a gaming license is awarded. If a license is awarded, Shufflemaster will be the third firm to obtain an interactive gaming license, joining IGT and Bally Technologies who got licenses in June.

British gambling firm Paddy Power also moved ahead in its quest for a Nevada license, and will be evaluated on July 26th by the NGC as well as have its technology tested for compliance.
