Online Poker legal in the US by end of the year?

Playing online poker legally in the US may be just months away

American online poker players may be able to play legally by the end of this year – but only in Nevada.

At a recent Gaming Policy Committee meeting in Las Vegas, the Nevada Gaming Control Board said licences will be issued in 30-60 days with games predicted to follow in 6-8 months time.

Any companies applying for licences will have to prove that their systems can identify players and prevent underage players from playing as well as detecting whether a player is within the state’s borders.

Despite progress in other US states, Nevada remains the only state where online poker is legislatively authorised.
