Real Gaming is now live in Nevada. It is the third regulated online poker room in the state. The site was once known as South Point Poker. It was rebranded in 2013.
Real Gaming is in a soft launch phase. The site has yet to roll out a marketing campaign.
The site does not require a download. It operates directly in all major browsers.
Real Gaming uses a different type of verification system than Ultimate Poker and WSOP. Players must download a mobile app to play for real money. A link to the required app is provided on the Real Gaming website.
Players are sent a token through SMS when attempting to sit in a game. The number provided must be entered into an authorization box. Players must also submit the last four digits of their Social Security Number and the text provided in a CAPTCHA image. This is only required one time per session.
Players do not have to submit this information to view the tables. All registered players may rail games when logged in to the site.
The only game available at this time is No Limit Texas Hold’em. There are seven cash game limits. All cash games have nine seats.

Real Gaming Sit and Gos
Sit and gos are available with two, six and nine seats. Heads up sit and gos have a 5 percent admin fee. The six and nine seat sit and gos charge 7 percent. This is lower than the industry standard of 10 percent. Buy-ins of $1, $3 and $5 are spread.
Real Gaming Tournaments
There is a section in the lobby for multi table tournaments. There were no events scheduled at the time of this post.
Real Gaming Banking Options
There are three deposit options available. Players may choose between electronic checks, check by mail and bank wire in the software’s cashier. Cash deposits may be made at the South Point main cashier cage. Players will need their username and a valid ID. The only withdrawal option offered in the cashier is check by mail.
Real Gaming Promotions
There are no promotions available at this time. Real Gaming’s website promises “We’ve got some great promotions on the way”.
One four-handed $.10/$.20 game and a heads up $.50/$1 game were running tonight. Traffic should grow as word gets out that Nevada players now have a third choice for regulated online poker.
