New Program To Connect Online Poker Players

Nevada gambling regulators have given preliminary approval to a system linking online poker websites in order to create a larger player pool. The technology operated by Gibraltar-based 888 Holdings would link players from a planned online poker site operated by the Treasure Island Casino and WSOP.com, which is run by Caesars Interactive Entertainment. It would also include a separate 888 online poker room connected to Treasure Island.

A larger pool would theoretically attract more players. Officials said the network could be a model for a system linking players in Nevada and Delaware. The two states have legalized online poker within their borders and have agreed to set up interstate play.
