Nevada seeking public comment on interstate poker regulations

19 Mar 2013

By Chris Sieroty
LAS VEGAS -- The Nevada State Gaming Control Board Gaming Commission is seeking public comment before drafting interstate online poker regulations under the recently passed Assembly Bill 114.

Signed last month by Gov. Brian Sandoval, AB114 allows Nevada to enter into compacts with other states to offer Internet poker and other online gambling in the participating states.

The five-member commission must draft regulations to implement the law.

People interested in or affected by the law have until April 12 to file comments that will be posted online. Replies to the comments will be accepted until April 19.

The commission is interested in what issues should be considered for inclusion in regulations of the interstate agreements, such as whether revenue sharing should be based on where a wager originated or the location of the servers.

The commission also wants input on how to handle potential player disputes if problems arise with the interstate deals.

“Regulatory language will be drafted after comments are submitted and will be considered at a regulatory workshop yet to be scheduled,” a commission statement said.

Currently, no Nevada-based online sites offer “real money” online poker. About a dozen companies, however, are working to complete their websites.

The bill allows Sandoval to broker deals that would allow Nevada-based online poker across state lines.

New Jersey and Delaware are the only other states that have legalized online gambling.

In 2011, the U.S. Department of Justice ruled that the federal Wire Act of 1961, which has been used to regulate online gaming in the past, only applies to sports betting.
