Two online casino licenses issued in Nevada

Two online casino licenses issued in Nevada Slow and steady wins the race and it appears that the gambling companies are well on their way to win the race to online casino legalization in the United States. Two online casino licenses have been issued in Nevada to the slots machine manufacturers IGT and Bally. The licenses issued are to give those companies the option to license out online casino software to casinos in the state of Nevada, those casinos in turn also have to go through a rigorous process of approval by the Gaming Commission.

 Bally Technologies and International Gaming Technology (IGT) are the two companies recipients of the brand new online casino licenses in Nevada. Fans of casino gambling may recognize the names of these two companies, likely seen their logos on the video slots they play at the local gambling hall - two of the largest manufacturers of slot machines for the land-based casinos in the United States. This was the first step, the next being that both Bally and IGT must have their online gambling technology approved by a state-accredited testing lab to ensure that they are up to par to offer online casino services safely and securely. The next step will be to license out the said technologies to licenses Nevada casinos, which in turn must also complete an approval process by the Nevada Gaming Commission for operating online gambling enterprise.

 Nevada, as expected, was one of the first states to pass a bill making online gambling legal, after the in-state internet betting was settled on federal level. According to comments from people in the know, actual online casino gambling could be expected in Nevada as soon as the end of this year.
