Good news online poker fans from Nevada and Delaware!

The Nevada-Delaware interstate iPoker launch is already underway. In fact, the launch can be expected within four to six weeks. Considering how long people have been waiting for this, the wait should be faster this time.

It was last year when Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and Delaware Gov. Jack Markell reached an agreement to join forces to combine online poker player pools.

So it will only be a matter of weeks before online poker players from Nevada and Delaware would be facing off against each other.

On the other hand, many had been impatient of the long wait, wondering what was taking so long for the interstate launch to happen. Sandoval has addressed this issue, saying the delay is due to a technical glitch.

When the launch takes place operators will now be allowed to share traffic between sites in both Nevada and Delaware. Of course, this is a win-win situation for the online poker economy.

Of course, if there’s a group of people that will benefit from this, it’s the players. The poker tables, that are traditionally less active during the off-peak season, will now be populated by more players. Not only will the launch keep additional games afloat, it will also boost tournament prize pools – which in turn will attract more players.

The best of all, it will generate more revenue for both states.

Now if there’s a company that could benefit from this would be 888 Holdings as it is the sole provider of online gambling software for Delaware and now for Nevada too.

All in all, the online poker interstate launch is more likely guaranteed to be a success. At least, we all hope so.
