The great state of Nevada is of course, known for gambling, so it is no surprise that they offer the game of poker. The state of Nevada is the cornerstone of all things gambling and has some of the best gambling options in the United States. Poker is available in many forms in the state as part of the Regulation 23 legislation which is based on rulings by the State Gaming Control Board and the Nevada Gaming Commission. The state offers many poker rooms, poker variants and tournament options for players to enjoy.
Nevada also allows home games to take place. This option is open to anyone who plays cards in a private home or residence but does not make money for hosting the game. All things considered, when it comes to poker in general, no state compares to Nevada.
The state of Nevada has been working on online poker
options for many years and already had the framework in place before the legislative moves in 2011. In 2011, legislation was passed that amended the general gambling law in the state which required the commission to create regulations for online poker licensing as well as operations. By the end of the year, the regulations were in place.
By mid to late 2012, the commission had already handed out its first online poker license and despite the quickness of legislation. As of April 30, 2013, Nevada allowed its first online poker room
, Ultimate Poker
, to open doors for all citizens of Nevada.
The state also will allow for player pools from other states since the internet gaming law was amended to allow for intrastate gaming.
