Multi-state online poker advanced another step forward on Tuesday as Delaware and Nevada entered into an agreement that will eventually allow poker players in both states to play against each other online at the same virtual tables.

The Official Website of the First State reported Delaware Governor Jack Markell and Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement that sets up the framework.

Currently the agreement is between Delaware and Nevada, but the 14 page Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement outlines the rules that makes it easy for additional member states to be added in the future to develop an online gaming network.

Governor Markell remarked, “This Agreement represents a crucial step in Delaware’s and Nevada’s efforts to make our online poker offerings more diverse, more competitive, and ultimately more enjoyable."

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval commented, " The agreement we’ve signed today provides the tools and the structure necessary for us to pioneer this expanding industry together, as states and as partners."

Delaware passed legislation in June 2012, to become the first state to legalize online gambling.

Other than Delaware and Nevada, New Jersey is currently the only other state which offers legal online poker.
