Land based gambling giant Caesars Entertainment was awarded an internet poker gaming license by the Nevada Gaming Control Commission on Thursday, making the casino giant the 17th company to be licensed for e-poker in the Silver State.
Caesars has had a deal in place with internet gaming firm 888 in which the two companies will partner up to offer an interactive poker product to Nevada customers pending their licensing by the state. Currently the two firms have products in place in France, Italy, and the UK.
Commenting on the issue, Caesars Communications Manager Seth Palansky said: “We want to thank the Commission for all their efforts throughout this process. There’s no doubt they do a thorough review and will ensure that Nevada is the best regulated market for online poker. We look forward to the opportunity to serve Nevadans when we complete the necessary steps to do so.”
