Online Poker is now officially legal in Nevada!

Nevada passes an online poker bill....and will be partnering with other states as well. Good news for poker players, hopefully this will get D.C. to get something passed nationwide soon:

So it is unclear if this will apply to sports betting. Also, it is only technically legal for residents of Nevada?

Sports betting online is still illegal. The bill applies to poker only. Nevada is going to seek other state partnerships to expand the player pool...think of it like a powerball for poker players...many states involved to expand the player pool.

It is just a first step, and there is a long ways to go, but it is a positive step.

New Jersey also is doing this as well. Governor Christie signed the bill just a couple days ago. It's a good step, but won't make much difference unless the other states do it. This HAS to be successful for other states to say yeah, lets do this.

France and some other european countries tried to legalize online poker and it basically flopped. Being as the government is money hungry, they made rake so high that it was really not beatable except for a very few players and at very high stakes. Of course if you don't care if you win or lose, and play strictly for entertainment value like slots, blackjack etc, then it won't be an issue for you eitherway.

I hope they just take Poker Stars model and build from that, even though I would like to see it as only American players online, not Rest of the World included (for my own selfish reasons)

I think it's bullshit that we need our government to decide everything for us. Our only purpose in life is to generate money for the elite.
