The latest on online gambling and sports betting news

Nevada is an online gambling state. You can play online poker and bet on sports through your mobile device if you are inside state lines. We’ll explain how to get started with your account below.

Perhaps surprisingly, Nevada is not as developed in online gambling as some other states. The land-based casinos themselves have such an intrinsic value to the state that there is less of a push for competition. In fact, online casino games and lottery games are not active in the state, strangely enough.

However, with so many other states finding success with online gambling, and newer generations of players increasingly living their lives online, things might change in Nevada sometime soon. In the meantime, read on for all the latest information and news about gambling in Nevada, online and live.

When did online gambling become legal in Nevada?

Nevada lawmakers signed AB 114 into law on Feb. 25, 2013. The law legalized online poker and authorized the issuance of online poker operator licenses in Nevada.

Nevada was the second state to legalize online poker, behind Delaware. In May 2013, Ultimate Poker was the first poker site to offer regulated real-money poker games online.

Can I play online casino games or just online poker?

Currently, online casino games are not legal in Nevada. Only online poker sites are licensed to operate in Nevada.

Will online casino games come to Nevada at some point?

It’s highly likely Nevada online casino games will eventually join online poker sites in providing gambling entertainment to the residents of the Silver State.

In fact, the law that legalized and regulated online poker in the state also allows for casino gambling. It only requires authorization for Nevada lawmakers.

The Nevada Gaming Policy Committee has addressed the original concerns that online casino games might cannibalize existing land-based casino revenues. They reference the successful New Jersey casino market as an example.

The successful launch of online poker in the state complete with efficient and accurate geolocation software and stringent age verification processes ensures compliance with all state gaming laws.

Some opposition to online casino games in Nevada remains, but support is growing. Even so, several operators are waiting for the green light.

Do Nevada casinos offer online sports betting?

Sports betting apps currently operating in Nevada include:

What companies offer online poker in Nevada?

The closure of Ultimate Poker in November 2014, left two online poker rooms in Nevada.

WSOP.com, the home of the World Series of Poker, is the only active online poker room in Nevada.

Real Gaming Online Poker, South Point Hotel‘s online poker room, exists but is currently not active.

Can I earn Nevada casino rewards playing online poker?

Yes. Online poker players at WSOP.com can connect their online Action Club loyalty program memberships with their accounts at Caesars Entertainment’s Caesars Rewards program, allowing them to earn comps at Caesars properties through online play.

Can I play the World Series of Poker online?

Yes. Players have been able to play for a WSOP gold bracelet through online events since 2017.

Since then, online bracelet events have grown in number every year. The 2020 WSOP had plans for 14 bracelet events before it was canceled. Fortunately, the WSOP did squeeze in the Main Event toward the tail end of the year. A hybrid format, combining online and in-person play, whittled down domestic and international fields until just one champion from each pool emerged. Those two players then competed in a heads-up showdown at the Rio.

In 2018, New Jersey joined the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA) with Nevada and Delaware, making players from that state eligible to compete for in gold bracelet events at WSOP.com

The 2021 schedule for the WSOP Online Circuit Series was announced in January. Players can compete to become eligible for the $250,000 WSOP Online Circuit Championship in December 2021. The championship will cap at 256 entrants.

When I play online poker in Nevada, am I just playing against other players in Nevada?

No. The Nevada government allows the state to enter into agreements with other states offering legal and regulated online gambling to share player pools.

In fact, MSIGA is one such agreement. Nevada and Delaware signed the agreement in 2015. New Jersey signed the agreement in 2018. That means players in Nevada can sit down at a virtual poker table and be playing with players from any of those three states.
