LAS VEGAS, NV - Nevada is one step closer to joining the Internet poker world after recommending two companies for interactive gambling licenses.

Regulators with the Nevada Gaming Control Board recommended Thursday that International Game Technology be licensed to manufacture and provide interactive gambling systems. Rival Bally Technologies got the same recommendation Wednesday.

The companies are the first to be considered for a license since authorities approved regulations on interactive gambling. The rules are making way for online poker, played with real money, within Nevada borders.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports IGT executives told regulators at the hearing about the company's age-verification technology that ensures players aren't underage.

The license recommendations will go before the Nevada Gaming Commission June 21 for final approval.
