Crusade to Legalize Online Gambling in the U.S. Gains Traction

14 Feb 2013

A movement that could result in the widespread legalization of online gambling in the United States is making progress in the state of New Jersey. Industry experts believe that a bill to legalize and regulate online gambling in New Jersey could have far-reaching implications in other states as well.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has expressed support for the bill, which would allow state residents to legally gamble online while positioning the state as a leader in the move to legalize online gambling in other parts of the country. The New Jersey state legislature must approve the measure before it becomes law. Legalizing online gambling is expected to contribute $250 million in revenue to the state's coffers and generate about 1,900 jobs for citizens of New Jersey.

The measure could also pave the way for other states to adopt similar regulations and potentially lead to the extensive legalization of online gambling in the U.S. This would allow U.S. residents to gamble safely and securely online with respected online casino companies. It would also provide an attractive option for major online casino companies that are looking to establish their brands in the lucrative U.S. gambling market.

Prominent figures in the gambling industry praised the governor for expressing his support for the measure.

"The vision demonstrated by New Jersey’s legislators and our governor have positioned Atlantic City as the leader in what is certain to become a new gaming model," said Michael Frawley, chief operating officer of the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel.

Casino Las Vegas, one of the world's leading online casinos, is a top candidate to enter the U.S. market if online gambling is legalized in the nation. Powered by the online gaming software giant Playtech, Casino Las Vegas is fully licensed by the Government of Gibraltar, regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner and operated by Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment.
