Ultimate Poker, the first ever legally regulated in the United States online poker room launched yesterday. This marks a big moment in the online gaming industry as regulation has proven near impossible at the federal level in the United States, which has left it up individual states to determine how best to regulate online gaming for their citizens.
Don’t go rushing out to signup on Ultimate Poker however, unless you live near Las Vegas or are planning on visiting their soon. Players must visit one of Station Casino’s 16 locations in order to deposit funds or withdraw winnings. Still this is a great first step in the regulation of online gaming in the United States.
