Gibraltar has sent a group of representatives to attend the GiGse conference that took place in the state of San Francisco. This delegation was led by Minister Gilbert Licudi, the gambling Minister of Gibraltar. The delegation took advantage of the conference and the presence of the Governor of Nevada, Brian Sandoval accompanied by Mark Liparelli, the Chairman of the gaming control board of Nevada to restore and solidify the relationship between the United States and Gibraltar.
According to various reports, there were meetings that took place between the Gibraltar delegation and 2 internet gambling operators who are intending to get licensed in the online gambling market of Gibraltar. Not only that, but there also have been reports that stated that the delegation held meetings with some gaming equipment testing companies, these meetings are said to have included the gambling commissioner of Gibraltar, Phill Brear.
Commenting on the current events happening in the gambling community, the gambling minister of Gibraltar, Gilbert Licudi, stated that the government of the United States is slowly approaching online gambling. He added that with Nevada being the first state to legalize some sort of intrastate online poker, this has caused a lot of the Gibraltar based internet operators to pursue a license to provide their services in the state of Nevada, and for operators from Nevada to seek license in Gibraltar. Therefore, Gibraltar and the state of Nevada and the United States will have to build a strong relationship and get over their differences.
