888 Casino Acquires License to Operate in the U.S.

Nevada approved 888 Holdings for a license to operate within the United States. 888 Holdings stopped operations in the U.S. In 2006 when federal laws blocking Internet casinos went into effect.

In early 2013, Nevada became the first state to legalize Internet gambling. Delaware and New Jersey soon followed. The license is set to be effective in May.

Las Vegas' Treasure Island agreed to a deal with 888. 888 also signed a deal with Caesars to create a spin-off of Caesar's World Series of Poker, and they completed a. deal with WMS, a leading slot machine provider.

This is the first gambling license given to a company outside of the United States. It positions 888 Holdings to get a good share of the Internet gambling market as more states approve online casinos and poker sites.

About 888 Holdings

888 Holdings operates 888Casino, 888's bingo, 888 poker, and sports sites. They also have a ladies-only online casino. Outside of their 888 sites, they run Casino-on-Net, Cassava Enterprises, Pacific Poker, and Reef Club. They were blacklisted by the International Gaming Affiliate Marketing Initiative for spamming practices, but the company says they've stopped using massive email campaigns and pop-up ads, sticking only to targeted marketing practices.
