The parade of companies getting the OK from the Nevada Gaming Control Board just got longer as Monarch Gaming and Global Cash Access (GCA) were approved for online gaming licenses.

Gaming Control approval is the last stop before final approval by the Gaming Commission. While it’s not a slam dunk, it would take something pretty serious to derail licensing efforts at this point.

They join South Point Casino as the latest companies lining up for a piece of Nevada intrastate online poker action.

Monarch Gaming

Monarch is a Reno-based company that’s best known for operating the Atlantis Casino.

Unlike most of the other operators who’ve been applying for online poker licenses, Monarch has not yet paired up with a software provider. Given that their license could expire unless they go online in the six months, expect to see an announcement in the near future.

Global Cash Access
GCA is Nevada based firm that’s best known for providing automated teller machines to casinos. They’re expecting to partner up with a New York-based gaming software outfit called Live Gamer for their online offering.

According to company officials, GCA is expecting to be a player on the national online poker market, should more states join the legalization movement.
