Nevada And Delaware Sign Historic Online Gambling Agreement
Nevada And Delaware Sign Historic Online Gambling Agreement

Listen
AIR DATE: February 26, 2014

The leaders of Nevada and Delaware signed an agreement Tuesday that will permit interstate online gambling between the two states. It is the first agreement of its kind, and is meant to bolster the market, and jackpots, for online gambling sites. Nevada and Delaware were the first two states to legalize online gambling, but so far, neither state has enjoyed much revenue from online play. Will this agreement increase the market for online games? Or do Nevada and Delaware need to create agreements with larger states to increase business?
