South Point Hotel Casino and Spa has a high chance to begin testing its online poker wagering website by this upcoming October. The testing for this new website is going to be in the hands of an independent laboratory that will be chosen by the regulators of the state of Nevada.
This is due to the fact that the gambling regulators for the state of Nevada have given the initial approval to the casino to operate its own NV online poker website.
This poker website is only going to be available for players who are within the borders of the state of Nevada.
It has been stated that if the gaming commission of the state gives the final approval on the 23rd of August, that South Point Hotel Casino that is owned by Michael Gaughan is going to become the first ever casino to be licensed to run its own online interactive gambling website.
There are more than forty casino operators who applied for such license and South Point Hotel Casino was the first in line
Mark Lipparelli, the Chairman of the gaming control stated that South Point Hotel Casino is considered to be the trailblazer, so the regulators need to make sure that everything is in order and all regulations are met before the websites is available to the public.
The chief operating officer of the casino, Lawrence Vaughan stated that that the technology of the website is going to have all the safeguard measures needed. These measures will ensure that all players are of 21 years of age or older and that they are located within the borders of the state of Nevada.
