LAS VEGAS — Nevada gambling regulators on Thursday voted to allow the world’s largest casino company to do business with a Gibraltar company that offers online wagering, marking the first time state officials have blessed a tie to Internet gambling despite the industry’s murky legal status. The Nevada Gaming Commission approved the relationship between Caesars Entertainment Corp. and 888 Holdings PLC, which runs online casinos in the United Kingdom and is publicly traded on the London stock exchange.
