It seems two days ago, an outfit called Ultimate Poker launched real money online poker for US players, but solely for residents of Nevada. There is no Mac client yet. I also don’t know if they are related to the scandal-ridden Ultimate Bet of earlier days.
I’m keen to see how this goes. Before online poker’s Black Friday, roughly 55% of my customers were in the USA. I’d _love_ to start having US customers in large numbers again.
But this being just for Nevada is somewhat worrying. It could precursor a state-by-state approach to online poker, meaning each player can only compete against others in their state.
