Over the course of development, very progressive aspect has come from one of the world’s top online poker operators, PartyPoker, who has indicated that the site is on the verge of launching a “US Network” in the country.
Players at BetMGM and Borgata Poker on Sunday have received an email citing about a promotion which offers them a chance to win an entry into a PartyPoker US Network $250K Freeroll which is scheduled to take place at the end of March. The top 100 finishers in the online tournament will be awarded with $320 free ticket into the PartyPoker US Network $250k.
Next is Nevada launch for Partypoker
According to poker experts, the use of the new term “US Network” suggests that PartyPPoker could soon be planning to go live in Nevada and subsequently merge its player pool there with New Jersey where it already operates.
As to recall, last year, the parent company GVC, was given green light to offer online poker in Nevada, but the company for some reason held back its launch in the state.
On the other hand, the operator has also applied for an online gambling license in Pennsylvania, but its status is still pending, as per a Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board missive dated January 6.
The other two states that have legalized online poker but have yet to go live are Michigan and West Virginia, and both are unlikely to open in the next six to nine months.
Further, as per a Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) a meeting regarding the credibility to PartyPoker NV pending application, is scheduled to take place on January 8.
However, there has been no official word from PartyPoker on the particular subject and launch of US network. But based on the dates of the PartyPoker US network free roll promoted on BetMet and BorgataPoker.com, PartyPoker could go live in Nevada and merge with New Jersey by the end of March.
