Sandoval talks to Delaware governor about online gaming compact

CARSON CITY — Gov. Brian Sandoval said he has talked with Delaware Gov. Jack Markell about allowing Nevada’s online poker games to operate in that state. He called the conversation “positive,” but nothing is expected to happen soon.

The state Gaming Commission adopted a regulation Oct. 25 encouraging the governor to seek compacts with other states that also allow online gaming.

There are only two other states that have approved online gaming — Delaware and New Jersey.

“Delaware is the only one that has gone live that would be a candidate,” Sandoval said. But state officials there want “time to see what their experience is going to be,” he said.
