he two states signed a liquidity sharing deal for online poker activities last year in an effort to boost internet gaming activity in both Nevada and Delaware.
Under the Multi-State Internet Agreement, licensed Nevada and Delaware online gaming sites could begin sharing player pools, primarily for poker.
Following a year of preparation, the platform provided by online gaming operator 888 Holdings has now been implemented.
Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval said the states were “leading by example to provide a legal, tightly regulated online poker market that protects consumers in both our states.”
Delaware Governor Jack Markel also spoke of his support for the network, suggesting that it could help boost online poker activity in both states.
“We now offer an online poker option that is more competitive and more enjoyable for its users, thanks to this collaborative effort,” Markel said.
According to PokerScout, licensed websites in both states began pooling players last week, with Delaware having reached a peak of 313 cash game players during the first day of sharing.
