    According to an iGaming Business article, The Chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, Mark Lipparelli, confirmed that intra-state online poker could be up and running for real money in 2012 for all those online operators with approved licenses and technical systems approved by the state.

    Mr. Lipparelli detailed the timeline for Nevada’s online gaming application process and confirmed that the approval will give a company the ability to operate without additional legislation.

    “The process from here will see licence applicants appearing on our public agendas in May/June.  For the successful licence applicants, the last step in turning the systems on will be a technical evaluation, and although we’re not certain how long this process will take, it’s plausible, even likely, that you’ll see the first set of systems approved for initial deployment by the fall.”

    Late spring and early summer is the timeline according to Lipparelli for technical evaluations for the operators that were “thoughtful about their approach and had their systems reviewed by test labs in the past” could very possibly be in operation be late fall to early part of 2013.
