This is coming from A. G. Burnett, chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, while UltimatePoker.com works out "the kinks" before their official license is granted to them. Burnett adds "we have others right behind them". Players can compete in nightly games with a prize pool of $1,000 and two $10,000 Sunday games, which is operated by Station Casinos' subsidiary, Ultimate Gaming.

 

Chris Krafcik, North American research director online gaming analysts Gambling Compliance, said in an e-mail to Reuters:

 

Other states will be watching Nevada closely to see whether it can effectively implement technology solutions that allow gambling businesses licensed there to identify the age, identity and location of their customers.
