Ultimate Poker’s bet in Nevada has certainly paid off.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that the site has registered “thousands of users” from every U.S. state and 20 countries.
Within the first three days, the website had dealt its 100,000th hand of poker.
As MMW reported last month, Ultimate Poker is the first legally regulated pay-to-play online gaming website in the United States.
Ultimate Poker’s website, however, can only accept wagers from gamblers playing on computers or mobile devices inside of Nevada’s borders.
The initial success of Ultimate Poker is not only a healthy sign for the company and its industry, but also for the state of Nevada.
Nevada will earn 6.75 percent of the revenues through gaming taxes from online wagering.
