Update: NGC Approves 888 and Treasure Island Applications

After much anticipation and high expectations, online poker software provider 888 Holdings and its future online poker partner Treasure Island Hotel and Resort have been granted internet poker licenses by the Nevada Gaming Commission.

This brings the number of online poker-approved companies to 21, including Fertitta Interactive, MGM Resorts, Golden Nugget and Boyd Gaming.

Brian Mattingley, chief executive of 888, supported his company's application before the NGC, saying: '888 has chosen Nevada as its first U.S. market, and we are hopeful that future developments will present even greater commercial opportunities for 888's Nevada-facing business."

Also, Commenting on this joyous development, he noted: "This is an historic moment for 888. This is the first time a company uniquely providing online gaming has been licensed by any US jurisdiction.

"Seen in the industry as the gold standard of global gaming regulation, we are delighted to have been awarded our licence to operate in the State of Nevada, a decision that vindicates our US strategy. We look forward to working with all our strategic partners and to re-launching the 888 brand in the US following the finalisation of platform approval."
