Nevada Opens First Online Casino
The U.S. established laws years ago that effectively banned online gambling in many markets. Many states are hoping to change this. Nevada was the first state to make online gambling legal for Nevada residents. The goal is to bring much-needed revenue into the state, instead of watching online gamblers from Nevada spend their money in foreign casinos. UltimatePoker is Nevada's first online, real-money poker site. Ultimate Poker just opened its doors and is accepting players.
Ultimate Poker specializes in poker games and tournaments. There are freerolls where you can win a bundle of cash for as little as a $50 buy-in.
To celebrate their grand opening, Ultimate Poker has a number of promotional offers. They have a Daily $100 Freeroll that starts at 7:30 p.m. Other freerolls include the $1,000 Nightly, $1 Million Boarding Pass Points Freeroll, $10,000 Sundays, and chance to win a VIP Staycation at one of the Station Casinos locations.
