Nevada's online poker transparency bill fails to advance in legislature
AB380, aimed at increasing transparency in Nevada's online poker scene, failed to progress in the state's legislative process
A proposed bill in Nevada aimed at increasing transparency in the state's online poker scene has failed to progress in the legislative process.
AB380 sought to establish a list of individuals with interactive gaming accounts who had been suspended or banned for cheating.
The bill's primary supporter, Sara Cholhagian Ralston, later amended the bill, removing the term "cheating" and any reference to suspensions or bans related to cheating. Instead, the revised bill proposed creating a list of all players with an account and their status.
Caesars Entertainment, the operator of Nevada's only poker website, opposed the legislation.
Despite the recent failure, Ralston said the conversation surrounding poker transparency in Nevada "is too important to be abandoned."
