Wynn Resorts Gives Nevada 888 Poker

Last Updated on


Poker players living in Nevada will soon be able to play online poker with other Nevada players through 888 Poker, in partnership with Wynn Resorts.

In the latest legal U.S. online poker partnership of a cascade of them to hit the news desk these past months (and for months to come in the foreseeable future) Wynn Resorts has partnered up with 888 Holdings, owner of 888 Poker among other online gambling sites, to offer its unique brand of online poker to players throughout the state of Nevada, where intrastate online poker has now been legalized and regulated. That makes Wynn Resorts, owned by Steve Wynn, the latest member of the All American Poker Network or AAPN that 888 Holdings set up along with Avenue Capital Group in order to offer legal intrastate online poker in states where it’s legal.

Currently, partnerships with land-based casinos already established in these areas is the only way an online poker site can apparently set up shop in the newly budding intrastate U.S. online poker market. Originally the news was that Wynn Resorts would be partnering with Poker Stars for its intrastate online poker offerings, but after the debacle of Black Friday, 2011, Wynn Resorts backed out of all talks with PokerStars, which is how AAPN and 888 Holdings was able to get a leg in the door.

So far, the states where online poker is now legal are Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware, and 888 Holdings’ Brian Mattingly is already getting in a stake in every one of these markets.

World Series of Poker’s Nevada Real Money Online Poker Site to Launch This Week

Last Updated on


The World Series of Poker’s new real money online poker site for Nevada residents, courtesy of Caesar’s Entertainment, will have its official launch this week.

As of this coming Thursday, September 19, 2013, the World Series of Poker’s long-awaited real money poker site is now officially live. Available exclusively to Nevada players for the moment, the WSOP is betting, like all the other Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware land-based gaming operations getting into the intrastate online gaming market, that interstate and then national online gaming, legal throughout the U.S., will be soon to follow.

The new WSOP real money online poker site is being offered by none other than Caesar’s Entertainment Corp (whose stock has tripled over the past year, no doubt in large part due to this imminent event.) Caesar’s says that they signed up more than 12,000 players for the new online poker site at this year’s 2013 World Series of Poker live at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

After a delay from its originally planned launch for earlier in the year, Caesar’s and the WSOP expressed gratitude to the Nevada Gaming Control Board for the in-depth licensing and testing procedures they implemented.

Nevada passed online gaming within the state in 2011 and that December passed its regulations for online gambling. And while at present the site will only be available to players in Nevada, a pact between Nevada and New Jersey, where online gambling is also now legal, is seen as inevitable, and the WSOP expects its site to offer its services to players across both states by early 2014.
