The Nevada Gaming Commission has recently signed off on South Point Casino's plan to open its own poker Web site. Nevadans can now play poker online but the big money will be when the casinos can take their sites national and international. The one big obstacle to that? Congress is still refusing to legalize online gambling of any kind. So what is the future of Nevada's online gambling industry? And can it be a major part of reviving the economy and building an IT capacity in the state's economy?

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
