Nevada Bill Opposed to Online Gambling Dead

bill legal lawA bill that would have limited future online gaming compacts between Nevada and other regulated states in the US has failed to progress from the committee.

Backed by Sheldon Adelson, Bill AB 414 would have blocked Nevada from linking up with another state for online gaming activities, with the exception of internet poker.

Nevada already shares online poker activities with Delaware, one of only two other regulated states in the US.
