$8.524 Million in Revenues Since Online Poker Launched in Nevada in April of 2013Published on April 1st, 2014 12:19 am EST
Earlier this week, Nevada's State Gaming Control Board released their “Gaming Revenue Report” for the month of February.
For the very first time, Nevada’s State Gaming Control Board gave a breakdown of online poker revenues in their monthly report. Despite Nevada’s online poker market launching nearly a year ago, the Gaming Control Board had to wait until there were three gaming sites operating in the state until they gave a breakdown of the online poker numbers.
According to the report, Nevada’s three online gaming sites generated a total of $824,000 in revenues during the month of February.
From December 1st, 2013 to February 28th, 2014, the state’s three online poker sites (WSOP.com, Ultimate Poker and Real Gaming) generated a combined total of $2.638 million in revenues.
From March 1st, 2013 to February 28th, 2014, WSOP.com, Ultimate Poker and Real Gaming generated a total of $8.524 million in revenues. The first ever hand of legal real money online poker in the state was dealt on April 30th, 2013 by Ultimate Poker. WSOP.com launched in September of 2013, while Real Gaming launched earlier this year.
Given the fact that Real Gaming launched in mid-February of 2014, they have only contributed a minuscule amount of revenues so far.
