Mark Lipparelli, Chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, state approved online operators could be running real-money, intra-state online poker before the end of 2012. Speaking to iGaming Business, Lipparelli confirmed that the state approval of both license and system will result in the ability to operate without any additional legislation.

“The process from here will see licence applicants appearing on our public agendas in May/June," he said. "For the successful licence applicants, the last step in turning the systems on will be a technical evaluation, and although we’re not certain how long this process will take, it’s plausible, even likely, that you’ll see the first set of systems approved for initial deployment by the fall.”
