Legalisation of online casinos in the United States
After five years of the online gaming market being “closed” in the United States lobby groups are continuously engaged in a battle between the pro- legislation and the anti online casino groups. Land based casinos which are having difficulty coping with the economic crisis see online gaming as a means of growth which will bring in cash to the real casinos. Groups of land based casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City wish to launch their own online casinos as do the Indian tribes who are protesting against the next delivery of legal casino licences while their own casino is not available (see article: Kahnawake Indian Reservation Wishes to have its own Casino).
The financial stakes are so colossal that the online gaming operators are just waiting to acquire a legal gaming licence in order to offer games of slot machines, baccarat, online roulette, blackjack and craps to players who are passionate about gaming. It must be said that there are plenty of high roller players in the United States since there are no less than 4 715 000 millionaires. Also casinos are the most profitable sector for the operators because players bet more in games such as slot machines due to the adrenalin rush and cumulative jackpots which involve breathtaking amounts.
All the operators are ready for D-Day when the licences will be granted in return for the high taxes to be paid but even so online casinos will be profitable.
Without a doubt the United States is a goldmine for online casino sites and this has been well understood by Rome Casino which has offered its services for several years to American players.
