Golden Nugget Granted Online Poker License in Nevada

Golden Nugget

On Thursday, the Las Vegas-based Golden Nugget received an interactive gaming license as an operator of online poker in Nevada.

The Golden Nugget's real-money online poker offering will be provided by Bally Technologies, which joined forces with the Golden Nugget in June. That partnership came a few days after Bally was approved for an interactive gaming license as a service provider for Internet poker in Nevada. The Golden Nugget's free poker offering, GoldenNuggetPoker.com, opened this year under Bally's poker platform.

With both companies licensed by gaming regulators, it could pave the way for the joint venture to launch the first real-money only poker site in Nevada.

The Golden Nugget's hearing Thursday came shortly after the Nevada Gaming Commission met with Boyd Gaming and Fertitta Interactive, both of which received their own interactive gaming licenses. Boyd will potentially serve as an operator while offering bwin.party's PartyPoker platform, while Fertitta will be a service provider under its new Ultimate Gaming brand.
