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.
