RENO, Nev. (AP) - The Eldorado hotel-casino is betting that online gambling will be legalized in the months or years ahead.

A subsidiary of the Reno casino, Eldorado Interactive, announced plans Friday to form an online partnership with the Reno-based video game developer 3G Studios.

James Kosta, founder and CEO of 3G Studios, says they are excited to have their technology and gambling platforms used by a such a well-respected casino operator.

Kosta says it puts both in position to take advantage of online gambling when he says it inevitably will be legalized at either the state or federal level. He says 3G also is developing online gambling games for web browsers, tablets and smartphones.
