LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The nation's first online poker company has won final approval from Nevada regulators.

The Nevada Gaming Commission gave Ultimate Gaming its final OK Thursday, after monitoring the site for three months to ensure that minors and out-of-state players are being kept out.

The site has dealt more than 9 million online hands since it launched in late April.

CEO Tobin Prior praised the state's tough rules for online gambling companies in a statement Thursday.

Only three states- Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware- have legalized online gambling.
