Gov. Sandoval signs multi-state internet gaming agreement

WILMINGTON, DE - Governor Brian Sandoval and Delaware Governor Jack Markell have signed a Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement that will eventually allow poker players in both states to play against each other online at the same virtual tables.

This is truly a historic day for Nevada, Delaware, and the country. One year ago the Nevada Legislature passed and I signed an Internet gaming bill into law, and today we are just beginning to witness the potential of this legislation with the signing of this agreement, stated Governor Brian Sandoval.

The agreement develops a framework through which the two states will jointly adhere to minimum regulatory standards.  It also allows Member States to retain the necessary control over who offers online gaming within their borders, and it allows Member States to pursue the particular applications of online gaming that make the most sense for them. For example, Nevada will only allow online poker games, and under this agreement, Member States have the flexibility and discretion to make those kinds of policy determinations for themselves.   

Gov. Sandoval and I both share the goal of ensuring that our states gaming industries are as competitive as they can be, while ensuring that games are conducted fairly, honestly, and securely, said Governor Markell.
