Nevada Governor Signs
Online Gambling Bill

CARSON CITY, NV - /Reuters/ - Nevada governor Kenny Guinn on June 14 signed a bill that will officially open the doors for online gambling in the Silver State.

The new law authorizes state gaming regulators to set up an infrastructure to license and oversee online gambling in Nevada if and when such gambling is deemed legal.

Online gaming is a federal issue whose legality is unclear at present but will probably be determined over the next few years in the nation's court system or in Congress.

The bill signed by Guinn was passed by the Nevada state legislature with broad support. It was also widely supported by the state's major casino operators.

"Nevada is at the forefront of legalized gaming in the United States, largely due to our regulatory agencies which serve as a model for gaming regulation everywhere," Guinn said in a statement. "With this bill we will be prepared to serve as a leader in all areas of legalized gambling."

If online gaming is eventually deemed to be legal, the new law would authorize the Nevada Gaming Commission to regulate not only Internet gambling, but also gaming over closed wire systems that might, for example, allow guests to gamble from their hotel rooms.

With Guinn's signature, the commission could begin to discuss the issue as early as at its July meeting.

Among other things, the law authorizes the commission to: make sure that online gaming is operated in compliance with federal laws; make sure that online gaming is secure and reliable, and that players are of legal gambling age; create and administer licenses to operate interactive gaming; and create and administer licenses to manufacture interactive gaming systems.
