Ultimate Gaming to end Nevada operations

Ultimate Gaming, the first real-money online poker website to be legalised and regulated in the US, is to end its operations in Nevada due to a lack of profitability in the state. The company, majority owned by Las Vegas-based casino-hotel firm Station Casinos, became the first operator to launch a legalised online poker site in Nevada when the state legalised internet gambling activities back in 2013.
