Nevada

In 2010, the first mobile sports betting app was released in Nevada. Since then, sportsbook operators report the apps generate anywhere from 50% to 75% of the sports wagering handle in the state.

In 2013, Nevada became the first state in the U.S. to have a domestically licensed and regulated online poker room operating within its borders. All online gaming companies are regulated by the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB). Ultimate Poker was the first to launch an online poker room in April 2013, but the site shut down operations in November 2014. The World Series of Poker launched its online poker site in September 2013, and South Point Casino launched its online poker site in February 2014. Nevada permits only poker to be played over the internet. Other forms of online gambling are not allowed.

In May 2018, Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware began sharing poker player pools at WSOP.com and 888poker network. The new combined network of sites between WSOP.com and 888poker merges the players from six online poker rooms into one player pool.

In May 2011, the Nevada Senate and Assembly passed Nevada state bill AB258, which legalized real-money online poker in the state of Nevada. The bill restricted potential operators to existing brick-and-mortar casino operators, with the key language requiring that operators be "an existing nonrestricted license holder or an affiliate that has been in business for at least five years." The bill also said the federal government had to explicitly allow online gaming or online poker before Nevada could offer it.

In August 2011, Nevada state gaming authorities released proposed regulations for internet poker. The proposals included rules for finding of entity suitability, technology approvals, audits and recordkeeping, and customer enrollment. The proposals also spelled out rules regarding regulatory oversight of internal controls by online gaming companies and established a disciplinary process for regulatory violations.

On 23 December 2011, the NGCB unanimously approved the latest draft to regulate online poker in Nevada. This was the same day the Department of Justice released a letter declaring that the Wire Act only pertains to sports betting.

In July 2012, the NGCB ruled that online affiliates for poker rooms must have a gaming license in the state of Nevada in order to profit from the state's legal online poker framework. Nevada was the first jurisdiction to make licensing a requirement for affiliates.

Gov. Brian Sandoval signed Assembly Bill 114 on 21 February 2013, which permits the Governor to enter into online gaming compacts with other states where online poker is legal. In addition, the bill contains a provision that institutes a five-year ban on any operator that accepted U.S. players after 31 December 2006. Assembly Bill 114 sets the online gaming licensing fee for operators at $500,000 with a renewal fee of $250,000. It also declares once again Nevada's right to move into online poker absent federal action.

In April 2013, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) responded to the Nevada Gaming Commission's request for public consultation. In the response, Michael Ellen, Licensing and Strategy Director for the AGCC, called on Nevada authorities to implement several changes and improvements to policy regarding allocation of tax revenue, establish a joint committee to handle player disputes, and allow compacts with jurisdictions outside the United States.

In February 2014, Nevada and Delaware agreed to allow players in each state to play against each other to improve player liquidity. The two states began sharing liquidity using 888 Holdings software in March 2015.

In October 2015, the NGCB issued a "cease and desist" order to daily fantasy sports sites operating in the state, saying the activity fit the definition of sports betting under Nevada law. The daily fantasy sports sites must apply for a license from the state before operating legally in Nevada, according to the NGCB.

In June 2017, legislation allowing parimutuel betting systems to offer betting on "other sports" as well as events such as the Oscars was passed.
