Nevada & Delaware Online Poker Play Partnership

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

Brett Collson reported on PokerNews.com yesterday that Nevada & Delaware could launch their online interstate, real-cash poker play as early as this Summer. (Gov. Brian Sandoval Eyes Summer Launch for Nevada/Delaware Internet Poker Compact).

The two states announced their agreement to cooperate (learn more about their online poker play partnership) in late February. The partnership is for poker play only, and will allow the states to share player pools. Players in each state can compete against players in the other state. Partnering in this way, creates the opportunity for a greater variety of poker games for players and obv. for each state to earn more cash.

Today, New Jersey is the only other state that allows online cash poker games. No word yet on whether New Jersey might consider joining with Delaware and Nevada.

Poker News Daily is reporting that despite the uplift on Wall Street, casino gaming  revenues in Nevada have continued on a downward spiral for the 16th month in a row.

In Downtown Las Vegas, the previous home of the WSOP, gambling win slid 14.03% to $45 million. North Las Vegas was one of only two areas that saw an increase in gambling revenues year over year in April, as win grew by 5.39% to $23 million.

The article goes on to report current revenues county by county, and includes a list of the % decline from January 2008 – April 2009.

Okay, I’ll d my part. I’m heading to Vegas in November; will play no limit Texas hold’em, and hopefully get to witness some part of the final table of the 2009 WSOP!
