U.S.A. Online Gambling Updates

February 23, 2013

Over the last few months some pretty heavy changes have started to take place in the U.S.A. online gambling market. It all started in Nevada, where the Nevada Gaming Control Board began entertainment applications for U.S.A. online gambling licenses, the first of their kind. Initially it was only 3rd party providers, such as software developers that were encouraged to apply, but soon actual online casino operators were queuing up to put in an application. We actually reported on many of these, until the number of applications, and the frequency they were being made, simply made this common place news.

However, things have been quite quiet recently, so we are going to give a short update on several other key American States, including Iowa, California, New Jersey, Mississippi and Delaware, all of which have begun to follow in the footsteps of Nevada in some form or another in recent weeks.

First up though, we need to take a closer look at New Jersey. Of all of the states that are moving towards opening up a fully legal local online gambling market, New Jersey is the closest to achieving it, after the afore mentioned Nevada. Although it also appears that Delaware is moving fast, and might actually be further along the road to making online casino play legal that New Jersey actually is. However, Delaware officials seem to be playing their cards close to their chest (ignore the pun) and being far less public about their movies than both New Jersey and Nevada.

Next we have several key states that are in the infancy of making online gambling legal. This includes California, Iowa and Mississippi. Although each of these states is certainly looking at the current legal situation for online casino play within their borders, they are by no means as far along the road to fully legal online gambling as New Jersey, Delaware and of course, Nevada.

So to sum the situation up. Nevada is currently leaded the way towards legal online gambling in the United States. With both New Jersey and Delaware already making up ground. California, Iowa and Mississippi are all beginning their initiatives to open up a local online casino market, but are quite a way behind New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada. However, this is all good news for American online gambling fans, as it seems it is only a matter of time before at least one fully legal online casino is available.
