Delaware and Nevada soon to share online poker liquidity

February 26, 2015

Two of the main gambling states in the US, Delaware and Nevada, are soon offering shared online poker pools. The two US states have officially signed the Multi-State Internet Agreement, allowing both states to create an intrastate gaming network, but for the most part, this is an arrangement for the online poker operators to share player pools. The governors of Delaware, Jack Markell, and Nevada, Brian Sandoval, signed the agreement earlier this week during an open ceremony where they also informed the press about other upcoming projects like the Multi-State Internet Gaming Association (MSIGA). Both governors publicly talked about the agreement during the open press conference in Wilmington, Delaware. Governor Markell said: “Generally speaking, each state will receive the percentage of the rake from each poker hand that's attributable to players from that state. Players from Delaware will be subject to the Delaware laws and regulations, and players from Nevada will be subject to Nevada's laws and regulations. Today this is an Internet poker agreement between Delaware and Nevada, but we know that more games and more states mean more players which mean more revenue to participating states, and that's why we wanted this agreement to be flexible enough to expand.” Governor Sandoval added: “This agreement strikes the necessary balance between reasonable regulation and state sovereignty. It establishes a regulatory board comprising representatives of member states to oversee and implement minimum standard provisions, which will ensure that online gaming is conducted honestly in accordance with state law. We hope it will serve as a model for multi-state collaboration and that other states will see the benefits of the agreement and soon decide to join for themselves. I have had conversations with New Jersey. We would love to have New Jersey as a partner as well. That federal bill has been out there for several years now. We cannot wait. I see this [MSIGA] as an opportunity for the states to show leadership and show that it can work, and demonstrate that it can be done lawfully and be well regulated.”
