South Point first online poker room in Nevada, Dan Katz Poker News Daily

South Point first online poker room in Nevada, Dan Katz Poker News Daily | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

It finally became official Thursday: South Point Poker LLC became the first company licensed to offer intrastate online pokerin the United States. Once South Point launches, its poker room will be able to accept players from within the state of Nevada’s boundaries, provided they are at least 21-years of age. The company expects to launch sometime in October.

 

Unlike other online poker license applicants, South Point has developed its own software client, rather than partnering with a developer

 

South Point actually has an online poker room up and running already, but it is completely different from the one that is coming. The current South Point Poker is a free-to-play room on the ZEN Entertainment Network. The rooms on the network are totally free – no monthly fee is required – and offer cash and prizes to winners of their tournaments.

Online poker may launch in Nevada in September, Charles Rettmuller PokerUpdate

Online poker may launch in Nevada in September, Charles Rettmuller PokerUpdate | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

Although Nevada gaming officials have pegged December or early 2013 as the anticipated date of online poker sites to be up and running in the Silver State, South Point Poker is looking at transitioning to real money play as early as September.

 

SouthPointPoker.com has been online since October, but failed to generate the player numbers that Gaughan was hoping for. He blames some of the problem on Zen Entertainment, the company he partnered with to supply the online poker platform. South Point has since located a new gaming platform provider and the site will focus on only poker at this time, but the development of casino games are in the pipeline.
