Nevada have been in the process of legalizing online poker sites in their jurisdiction for quite a while now, and whilst not an easy task due to the complexities of this new poker playing environment, in regards to ensuring the sites they license and regulate have a solid and dependable set of checks and double checks, to ensure the sites they license are above board, they have got to the point where they can now license such sites.
As the State of Nevada will of course be benefiting financially from this licensing of poker sites, it appears that neighbouring States are happy to permit their citizens to play poker online, if they get a cut of the taxes and fees these legalized sites will be paying, and this is probably why Delaware have announced this partnership with Nevada.
