We reported earlier this month that South Point Hotel and Casino were granted a conditional license to operate online poker. The three-member Gaming Control Board granted the license on condition that South Point Hotel and Casino submit guarantees that they have a cash reserve that ensures the safety of online player’s funds. This is aimed at preventing a situation like Full Tilt Poker where player’s funds were put at risk and even frozen.

Well on Thursday South Point Hotel and Casino were officially granted an online license from the Nevada Gaming Commission as a manufacturer, operator and service provider of interactive gaming systems in the state of Nevada.

This is an historic day for online gambling and poker in particular as South Point becomes the first to offer real-money online poker in the U.S.Things could be up and running as soon as October as soon as the website’s technology is approved by independent gaming and testing labs. South Point are unique in that they have their own interactive gaming system with their patent pending.

South Point already prepared the groundwork for their real money gambling site with their launch of their free-to-play online poker room a year ago called SouthPointPoker.com.

South Point will officially go down in U.S. history as the first company to receive an interactive gaming license in the state of Nevada. Other major companies that were awarded licenses in Nevada were IGT, Bally Technologies and Shuffle Master. The queue is long in the state of Nevada were dozens of companies have applied for gaming license with the Nevada Gaming Board. They include major gambling companies like Caesars and MGM just to mention a few.

This historic development is just one of many that are taking place on a daily basis in the U.S. There is no stopping internet gambling coming to the U.S. as these developments continue to prove.
