Caesars Group Gets Thumbs Up for WSOP

10 December 2012

Caesar Entertainment Corp

On December 5, 2012, the Caesars Entertainment Corporation was allowed to stake a small step forward for the World Series of Poker, and perhaps a giant leap for online poker in general.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board voted to recommend the Caesars group for an online poker license in Nevada. The recommendation is expected to be officially approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission on December 20, 2012.

If approved, Caesar Entertainment Corp will join 16 other casino and gaming companies with interactive gaming licenses to offer online poker to Nevada-based players.

The Caesars group manages the advertising and promotional aspects of the annual World Series of Poker. Partnering with Europe’s own 888 Holdings, Caesars operates legal real money WSOP sites in France, Italy, and the United Kingdom. The Nevada WSOP site would go live as soon as 888 Holdings receives its full licensing as a provider of interactive gaming systems in the state. Expected launch date is sometime in spring 2013.
