Nevada governor signs online gambling bill
Author: JT Smith
Nevada Governor Ken Guinn has signed a bill that allows state gambling authorities to create an infrastructure to oversee online gambling in Nevada. Don't place your bets just yet: all the bill does is authorize the creation of the infrastructure; online gambling is still a grey area of federal law, so e-casinos with the Nevada state seal of approval won't actually exist unless such activity is deemed legal by the U.S. government. Interactive Week has the story.
