Nevada, Delaware Launch Online Poker Player Sharing

Nevada, Delaware Launch Online Poker Player Sharing

Nevada and Delaware have begun sharing online poker players, implementing an agreement made more than a year ago.

888 Holdings is providing the platform for the Multi-State Player Network.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval said the two states were “leading by example to provide a legal, tightly regulated online poker market that protects consumers in both our states.”

Both Nevada and Delaware have had trouble gaining large player bases due to the small populations in their states. Online gambling is only approved for players within the state’s boundaries. By teaming together, the two states hope to increase player bases.

“We now offer an online poker option that is more competitive and more enjoyable for its users, thanks to this collaborative effort,” Delaware Governor Jack Markel said.

Nevada is home to WSOP.com, which is operated by Caesars Interactive Entertainment, and Real Gaming, a website associated with the South Point Casino. Real Gaming is not part of the network because it doesn’t use 888 software, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.

In Delaware, players can access the network through the Dover Downs, Harrington Raceway or Delaware Park websites, which use 888 software.
