As of 2013, 888poker holds a Nevada Gambling Commission license and has started operating there. They also operate in New Jersey as an online provider of gambling entertainment.

In 2013, 888 decided to go with Delaware Lottery as their Primary Vendor. As with Nevada and New Jersey, they had to sign a partnership with an offline partner, so they signed it with Scientific Games, the largest provider of technology for electronic lottery in the US.
