Online Casino Licenses and the U.S.

Online casino gambling and the U.S. have some issues. This is of course known if you know much about online casinos or pay attention to the legal issues surrounding the online casino industry. However, if you aren’t as aware as you could be of online casino gambling’s status in the New World, you might want to check it out before you make the decision to gamble online. Of course, if you are not an American citizen and your country has few qualms or an established online casino industry, this discussion is probably not at all relevant to you.

But if you are an American or non-American who wishes to open up an online casino to do business with Americans, it is quite a relevant subject. The U.S. government is staunchly opposed to online gambling at the moment, whether at online casino sites or at any sort of online gambling place of gaming. Getting licensed as an online casino operator is hard enough as it is in those countries that allow their citizens with few restrictions to operate legitimate online casino companies, but in and for countries which view online casino gambling as illegal is, well, pretty much a no-no at the moment.

There are a lot of people out there who would probably like to start an online casino. Online casinos are capable of bringing in lots of money to those who start them. This is a well-known attribute of pretty much any honest (or dishonest) gambling business, but the nature of the internet helps those entrepreneurs who might otherwise be lazy and not seek to start a “real” casino to get their rears in gear and actually try to create a viable internet business in the form of an online casino.
