A sample poker game is played on the Ultimate Gaming website in Las Vegas on April 29, 2013. Ultimate Gaming began offering Internet gambling in Nevada in early 2013.

RENO — A chain of casinos in northern Nevada is getting into the online gambling business.

Peppermill Resorts launched the new online poker partnership on Tuesday with Las Vegas-based Ultimate Poker.

Peppermill officials say players can make deposits at their flagship casino in Reno at the Western Village in Sparks, and three hotel-casinos in Wendover on Interstate 80 along the Utah line.

The Peppermill says gamblers must sign up online at PeppermillReno.com/Ultimate to open an account and then visit any of the casinos to make a secured deposit before playing.

The 2013 Nevada Legislature approved legal online poker within state borders. Ultimate Gaming, owned by Las Vegas-based Station Casinos, is one of three operating websites alongside World Series of Poker, owned by Caesars Entertainment, and Real Gaming, owned by the South Point.
