Game On: Nevada Passes Intrastate Poker Bill

About. Fucking. Time.

About. Fucking. Time.

On the last day of iGNA, an unexpected gift dropped from the poker heavens.

The Nevada state legislature met on Thursday regarding the intrastate poker bill that’s been kicking around for awhile. Looking to beat New Jersey and Delaware to the punch, the Assembly Judiciary Committee passed an amended intrastate bill, and Governor Brian Sandoval signed it into law.

The new bill will help solve a major Nevada intrastate issue: liquidity. Or in layman’s terms, nobody lives in Nevada, so nobody will make money on an online site without signing compacts with other states. The new bill will allow such aforementioned compacts.

Said Sandoval:

“This is an historic day for the great state of Nevada. Today I sign into law the framework that will usher in the next frontier of gaming in Nevada. This bill is critical to our state’s economy and ensures that we will continue to be the gold standard for gaming regulation.”
