Monitoring the pulse of the US online gambling industry, Gambling.org has launched a new content hub dedicated to State and Federal regulatory updates.
Online PR News – 10-June-2014 – New York, New York – Online gambling news and information guide, Online.Gambling.Org, is pleased to announce the expansion and launch of a new content hub that focuses on regulatory updates in state’s that have or will be moving forward to legalize various forms of online gambling in the US.
In response to a growing number of states that have already passed laws regulating internet betting - Nevada and New Jersey in particular - OnlineGamblingOrg will be launching a series of Web pages offering realtime legislative and regulatory updates in corresponding States.
“In New Jersey, recent developments include a bill that would permit foreign, offshore companies to locate in New Jersey for accepting real money wagers from non-US residents, effectively turning New Jersey into an international online gambling Mecca.”
For example, recent updates in the State of Nevada and Delaware, include an agreement that would effectively form the first interstate online gambling compact, as well as give Nevada residents the opportunity to play casino games online in addition to poker.
In the State of New Jersey, where online gambling was launched and open to the public since Thanksgiving weekend last year, online revenue is slowly growing, and recent developments include a bill (with growing support) that would permit foreign, offshore companies to locate in New Jersey for accepting real money wagers from non-US residents, effectively turning New Jersey into an international online gambling Mecca.
On the other end of the spectrum, there are recent motions to revalidate the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA), which was deemed ineffectual through a US Department of Justice ruling that the 1969 Wire Act only applies to sports betting. While this bill stands a long chance of gaining the needed support, it would certainly have repercussions on individual State’s that have already legalized online gambling should it be passed on a federal level.
Other states being eyed by OnlineGamblingOrg’s team of reporters include California, Florida, Connecticut and Colorado. All said and done, OnlineGamblingOrg’s newly launched content hub will serve both industry and players in keeping track of new laws being passed that will affect online gambling activities in the United States on both a federal and state level.
Launched in 2013, OnlineGamblingOrg is committed to providing content related to online gambling, including casino game tutorials, reviews and tips, historical accounts and timely news impacting the iGaming industry at large.
