The Future of US Online Casino Gambling

The United States have traditionally been seen as nominally gambler-friendly. After all, how could a country and citizenry, so often taking risks other countries and citizenry are not willing to take, be averse to risk-taking in another form? Gambling Meccas like Las Vegas exist not only in the American consciousness but the world’s; online poker is popular, but long before it made a transition to the internet poker games kept the old, Wild West fun in a way not always, but often, dangerous to one’s health – after all, that bruiser in the saloon with a huge gun didn’t usually like to lose.

But today, online casino gambling is seen as something dangerous in the eyes of America’s government, this even while the American public expresses quite plainly with their credit cards, bank drafts, PayPal transfers and payout percentages that the people of the U.S. want online casino gambling in their country. Of course, it isn’t so cut and dry a level of support as many like to think it is. Still, U.S. citizens love to gamble online, and the evidence is there to support the contention that they would look very unkindly upon their government taking online casinos away from them.

The future is not set in stone for online casino companies or the online gambling industry, but if online casinos are to take full advantage of the economic might of the American worker and taxpayer, they need to be aware first and foremost that they are not in an enviable position vis-?-vis the U.S. government on this issue, and that the U.S. gambling public, if it wants to see online casino gambling continue into the future in a legal manner will need to be recruited on behalf of the online casino industry. The way for online casino gambling in the U.S. must be legal, otherwise it will lead to chaos for the industry’s American dreams.
