Playing poker online in Nevada is regulated and legal. Online poker licenses began to be issued in 2012 and residents now have their choice of a few online poker sites. There are also multiple other sites looking to get in on the action as well.
The only drawback for now seems to be limited in state player pools. For example to play online at wsop.com, you have to be in Nevada and are only allowed to play against other players who are also located within the state.
Regulation and Taxes for Online Poker in Nevada
- Status of regulation: Online poker is regulated by the state of Nevada.
- Tax on Players: 0-39.6%. You are taxed on your poker winnings at the Federal and State levels. Federal taxes can be up to 39.6% at the highest level. Nevada has no state income tax.
- Segregation: Yes – Nevada players share tables with only other players located within the state borders.
Cashout times can vary by withdrawal method and from site to site. We recommend you view the US Poker Cashout Report for the most recent processing times.
Nevada is of course home to Las Vegas, America’s playground. This definitely rings true for the poker player, with over 70 poker rooms throughout the state and over 40 in Sin City alone. Games of all stakes and skill levels can be had any time of the day or night.
Each summer Vegas is home to arguably the greatest poker tournament series in the world, The World Series of Poker. Anybody looking to put their name on the world poker map knows the WSOP in Las Vegas is the place to start.
Along with endless live poker action, Nevada is also a trailblazer amongst the country’s online poker world, being the first state in the nation to license and regulate online poker. From a poker player’s perspective, this state has it all.
Already the first state to regulate online poker, further legislation in regard to the game continues to evolve. This is clearly evident by this step toward the merging of player pools between Delaware and Nevada.
One could only hope that the template for poker freedom created in Nevada could someday be adopted by other states as the move toward federal legislation grows.
