Nevada Asks for Input on Interstate Compact Regulations

With its interstate online poker legislation in place, Nevada is asking for comments from state licensees and other interested parties on how best to draft regulations regarding revenue sharing.

The Nevada Gaming Commission website is actively soliciting input on whether revenue sharing among partnered states should be based upon the location of the wager or on the location of the server or licensed host. Another issue requiring a solution is which state will govern disputes between players who are located in different states. Those who wish to comment on these matters are required to back up their reasoning with legal support.

The deadline for submitting suggestions to the commission is April 12, 2013. Replies to comments are permitted for one week, until April 19, 2013. To send a comment, address a letter to Sally P. Elloyan, Executive Secretary of the Nevada Gaming Commission, located at 1919 College Parkway, P.O. Box 8003, Carson City, Nevada, 8970. Emails should be sent to [email protected]

Parties submitting comments may also include suggestions on other topics related to interstate compact regulations. Following the submission deadlines, the commission will schedule a regulatory workshop to consider all comments received.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval signed the interstate compact legislation into law late last month. The Silver State is aiming to be the hub of online poker throughout the U.S. and to set regulation standards for other states to follow when entering the online poker market.
