According to Vegas Inc., two more prominent gaming industry brands are lining up to join Nevada’s interactive gaming license club.

Following the state Gaming Control Board’s unanimous approval of recommendations for foreign and domestic operators, 888 Holdings of Gibraltar and Las Vegas-based Treasure Island entered the picture.

“888 Holdings intends to collaborate with Treasure Island, as well as WMS Gaming and Caesars Entertainment, to offer online poker using its technology and experience in the European market,” the report reads.

If approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission at its March 21 meeting, 888 Holdings and Treasure Island would be the 20th and 21st companies to receive interactive gaming licenses in the state.

The latest entrants to the online gaming scene certainly won’t be the last. After Gov. Brian Sandoval backed legislation that changes Nevada’s interactive gaming landscape, the gates of opportunity were opened and companies are piling in with haste.

“This is a historic day,” Sandoval said February 21st, before signing the law into effect. “This is the day we usher Nevada into the next frontier of gaming.”

    2l licensees and yet…we still have no Idea when, or even if, the first hand of legal poker will be dealt.
    There are however, a lot of guesses and speculation.
    Now, they are talking about exporting our complete lack of actual legal poker to other states and maybe even internationally.

    What is it called when you make millions of dollars selling a product that doesn't exist?
