MGM Receives Nevada Online Poker License
By : admin
Many casinos as well as online gaming companies are standing in line to receive a Nevada online poker license to operate their online poker business in the state of Nevada. One of the most recent applicants that now on the 15th of November 2012 have received their online license is; MGM.
Jim Murren, the CEO of MGM resorts urged the importance of individual states to work together to strengthen the market; “We feel strongly that if it is in fact state-by-state, the states themselves need to compact with one another to create a more viable business model,” said Murren. “Any one state going on its own presents an economic challenge, particularly in a small state like Nevada.”
Many parties were doubtful if MGM would be have their application granted this due to their new partnership with the online gaming gigant Bwin and Party Gaming.
This would actually give bwin.party a good way into the market, without themself receiving a license.
In total their is now 12 companies that have been granted a operator license in Nevada.
