Nevada Grants Online Poker Licenses to Aristocrat and GambleID
The Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC) granted Aristocrat Technologies and GambleID LLC, their license to provide online poker technological services to Nevada-based casino operators. The decision comes right after the three-member panel of the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB), unanimously voted to recommend their approval.
Australia-based Aristocrat Technologies became the twenty-second Interactive gaming company to receive a Nevada license, for its capability to manufacture and supply interactive gaming equipment. The NGCB’s endorsement and the NGC’s concurrent approval do not come as a surprise, since Aristocrat Technologies has more than 50 years experience in the interactive gaming industry. The company pioneered the business of manufacturing slot machines, popularly known today as classic slot games and still patronized in major land-based slot markets worldwide.
Aristocrat partners with another Nevada licensed operator, Amaya Gaming Group and its recently purchased Ongame Poker Network. The two gaming companies agreed to integrate Aristocrat’s nLive platform, which includes technology for offering not only real-money online poker but also those offered as free play in online casinos and in social platforms.
US-based GambleID LLC has a track record of more than 20 years of operations to prove its expertise in the field of identity validation and customer registration services. The company’s long list of clientele includes providers of healthcare, oil and gas, financial services and government operations, in addition to some of the topnotch casinos operating worldwide. GambleID uses data analytics to authenticate customer’s identity and determine geo-location compliance in real time. On the strength of NGCB’s recommendation, the company gained the NGC’s concurrent approval; making it the 23rd company to be awarded with a license to operate in Nevada’s Internet gambling industry.
