A Closer Look at AB 466

12 June 2001
A decisive victory for Internet gambling was won June 4 in Nevada when the state legislature passed a bill that paves the way for legalized Internet gambling in the state. The legislation, AB 466, empowers the state Gaming Commission and the Gaming Control Board to determine the appropriate regulatory framework for the operation of Internet gambling sites. For those who couldn't be part of the state legislature's 11th-hour discussions on AB 466, IGN has obtained a copy of the bill for your reading pleasure.

The bill now awaits Nevada Gov. Kenny Guinn's signature for enactment. According to several reports, his signature will be on the dotted line ahead of the 10-day deadline.

Most experts agree, however, that it will be 18 months to two years before an actual online casino goes live in the Silver State.
