Study Shows US Residents Gamble Big at Online Casinos

27 October 2013

A recent study conducted by the American Gaming Association revealed that despite online gambling is not currently allowed in all but three states in the US, American residents spent a whopping $2.6 billion on internet gaming and betting websites in 2012, which represents a significant share of the $33 billion that are gambled online worldwide.

The new study seeks to emphasize the effects of the unregulated gambling industry in the US, which is now losing important tax revenue to other jurisdictions which offer gambling solutions. The good thing is that the US government is most probably shifting towards legalizing the American gaming and betting industry, especially since several lawmakers have expressed interest in opening up to the gambling market and creating legislations that will regulate online poker. At this moment, there are three American states which have recently started their first online gaming and betting sites. Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey are the first ones to buy casino software and introduce online gambling to Americans, but all gaming insiders know that it would be best for the US to create a federal law which will not only allow the creation of internet gaming and betting sites, but would also win back all the enthusiastic punters who now prefer to gamble at foreign online casinos.

The entire gambling population in America is anxiously waiting for a more universal regulatory framework for online gaming sites that will increase both customer satisfaction and revenue stream for the state coffers.
