In case you missed it, Nevada legislators legalized online gambling on last Friday. The issue from what I have seen while reading tweets and FB posts, is that everyone thinks this law only impacts the people of Nevada…..FALSE!
Nevada officials pushed through a bill which makes INTERSTATE online poker legal. The decision will allow Nevada to make agreements with other states, allowing USA residents to play online poker legally across state borders.
In 2011 the Federal Wire Act was changed to make interstate gambling legal, except sports betting. Nevada has already begun to contact states in order to set up agreements to run legal online gambling platforms across the country. New Jersey is due to approve this same measure on February 26th creating a race between the two states to contract with other states in order to acquire players……more news to come on this folks!
