The state known for its lady luck has become the first in the nation to forge into the online gambling world.
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval signed an online gambling bill today that legalizes Internet gaming, according to the Associated Press.
"This is an historic day for the great state of Nevada," Sandoval said, according to the Associated Press. "Today I sign into law the framework that will usher in the next frontier of gaming in Nevada."
According to the Associated Press, Nevada already has 20 pending licensing applications from Web site operators and software vendors.
The state's Assembly and Senate easily passed the new bill before the governor signed it today. The bill allows Nevada to partner with other states to let their residents also partake in online gambling.
"This bill is critical to our state's economy and ensures that we will continue to be the gold standard for gaming regulation," Sandoval said.
