You can add Caesars Interactive Entertainment—and the World Series of Poker—to the growing list of online poker businesses in Nevada. The Nevada Gaming Commission officially granted Caesars a license Thursday to operate in the Silver State.
The state’s gaming regulators have already approved a partnership with Caesars and European operator 888 Holdings. The joint venture already runs real money World Series of Poker-branded online poker rooms in the European market.
Caesars executives have said their Nevada site could launch early next year. The next step is 888 receiving a license as an interactive gaming provider.
