A NV casino can partner with an outside platform provider, but that provider must be licensed as well. Stars won't be able to get a license with the legal stuff going on now, and they may never be able to get one. But many of the off shore sites, including Party, have already partnered up with many of the potential operators in NV.
However, using the platform provided by the off shore site does not mean player pools will be merged together. For the time being, it appears they have to be separate. This means that only people in NV will be able to play, and only with each other.
This is probably a temporary situation.
