The potential legalization of online gaming in the United States has brought about a partnership with France based online gaming operator Chiligaming and the Golden Nugget according to an announcement made on Friday, February 10th. At some point in the next quarter Chiligaming will launch a free play online poker site for the Golden Nugget.

The proprietary UIGEA-compliant iGaming platform offered by Chiligaming is a main feature of its U.S. proposition - designed to allow a quick entry into the market while maximizing options as the U.S. regulatory and vendor landscape begins to take shape for the Golden Nugget. A variety of features offered in Chiligaming's software make it the perfect tool to interact with the social gaming community; multiple language compatibility, virtual currency, and mobile device accessibility like iPhone and Android.

"Chiligaming is thrilled to partner with Golden Nugget, which has a very strong brand presence across the US," said Alexandre Dreyfus, Chiligaming's CEO and Founder. "With its Las Vegas, Laughlin and Atlantic City properties, it is ideally and uniquely positioned for all of the online developments that lie ahead."

Chiligaming opened an office in California last September; announcing it would roll out a free play online poker network for U.S. residents. With a strong market presence in the U.K. and France, Black Friday brought about the company's additional effort to enhance their brand recognition in the U.S.

Tilman J. Fertitta, Golden Nugget's Chairman and Owner, "We started an intensive process approximately nine (9) months ago and looked at more than a dozen internet gaming companies and selected Alex and Chiligaming because they were experienced in online gaming in Europe and demonstrated incredible passion, talent and knowledge which our team found to far exceed their competitors. We believe that online gaming is inevitable in the United States and that the Golden Nugget will be well positioned to compete when US laws allow for online gaming."
