History could be made on August 23 in the U.S. should the Nevada Gaming Commission approve an interactive gambling license for South Point Casino. State gambling regulators in Nevada have already tentatively approved the casino’s plants to operate online pokerwithin the Nevada boundaries.

South Point casino gained conditional approval to conduct interactive gambling on Wednesday from the State Gaming Board in Carson City.

According to attorney for South Point Casino, Steve Harris, they are currently testing the online poker website with the aid of an independent laboratory of the gambling regulators. Harris believes it is possible that as soon as October, South Point’s poker website may begin accepting real-money wagers.

There have been dozens of casino operators and related equipment manufacturers who have also already applied for interactive gaming licenses in Nevada.

Luckily for the South Point Casino they were at the front of the queue and seem to be the casino that will go down in the record books as the first to offer legal internet poker in Nevada.

Nevada is one of many U.S. states who are pursuing legalized online poker with New Jersey, Delaware and California hot on their heels.

State Point casino has already been offering a free-to-play online poker site from last year already. South Point have developed their own technology and have acquired their own interactive gaming system. They are compelled to comply with safeguards and protocols before being allowed to launch their poker website.

Chief operating officer of South Point Poker, Lawrence Vaughan stated to the Nevada control board that their systems have all the necessary safeguards in place to ensure that only players over the age of 21 and who are physically in the state of Nevada are allowed to play.
