The Nevada Gaming Control Board has approved an initial application by 888 Holdings to bring an online poker network to the state of Nevada, pooling online poker games between different casinos.
The 888 powered poker network would work between various operators and feature higher player liquidity, as punters who previously signed up at other casinos could join in on the action. Any potential network could also work interstate, allowing players from New Jersey or Delaware to also partake in the virtual games.
Now that the Nevada Gaming Control Board has approved the software, it will head to the Nevada Gaming Commission, who is expected to render a decision before the end of the month.
