• Nevada Board Reaches Online Gambling Agreement

    02 February 2011

    With New Jersey just a signature away from intrastate online gambling, California has been trying to get something approved over the last two legislative sessions and Florida now looking closely again at regulating online gambling, it seems the states are now doing what the federal government will not…take advantage of the billions in online gambling revenue that is going to off shore gambling sites.

    This week the Nevada Gaming Control Board reached an agreement with the British-based Alderney Gambling Control Commission which is a regulatory body for internet gambling in the British Channel Islands. The deal, for now, just lays the framework for cooperation between the two gaming control bodies. All that is planned for is a visit between the two and sharing information.

    Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman Mark Lipparelli said of the new relationship;

    “We are fortunate and appreciative of our relationships with governments around the globe similar to what we have developed with the AGCC. As our licensees continue their global expansion and among new business sectors, we must adapt as an agency. Formalizing these distant relationships is a benefit to all involved from many perspectives including cost, time and quality.”

    No doubt Lipparelli is referring to the Caesar’s online presence and the WSOP.com brand expanding into a more global presence.

    Though not a lot of details have been released to show what the relationships effect will have on future online gambling in Nevada, Alderney Gambling Control Commission CEO Andre Wilsenach comments may provide a hint;

    “Cooperation with other regulatory bodies around the world is fundamental to being a successful regulatory body. Considering the Nevada Board’s long-standing history and experience of regulating gaming, we are very pleased to have formalized our cooperation with the Nevada regulator. We are looking forward to working with them in the areas of investigations, compliance and developing technical standards.”

    Though there is no attempt by Nevada on the state level regarding online gambling in the U.S. it seems the Nevada Gaming Control Board is taking steps to assure it has firm footing in the ever growing online gambling global market and possibly positioning itself as an authority to regulate all online gambling in the United States.
