Casinos By Country    

United States

 

The United States obviously is the largest market on earth for online gambling. However, because of the political and legal situation, the access to online casinos does not exist for U.S. citizens. That legal atmosphere is ever-changing, but one thing must be emphasized, which is that customers will not find themselves in danger of prosecution if they play.

Casinos in United States

At one time, there were thousands and thousands of online casinos that were appealing to the United States customer. However, the government, which did not want to legalize something it could not control (all operations are located outside the U.S.), passed a law called the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act which prohibited financial institutions from being involved in any transactions related to online gambling, thus doing its best to cut off the supply of customer deposits (not to mention avenues of withdrawal). This law essentially made it illegal for casino operators to deal with players from the United States, or at least placed things into a gray area.

Consequently, many of the casinos that had been catering to the United States audience pulled out, choosing to concentrate their attention elsewhere. However, the decision was made on the part of some casinos to continue to "face" the U.S., and software providers such as Realtime Gaming complied. As it stands, although no U.S. customer of an online casino is going to be prosecuted, that does not mean that their bank accounts cannot be affected. And safe deposit options are limited. The casinos who deal with the U.S. crowd have figured out a way to circumvent the restrictions that have been imposed by the major credit card companies. There is at least one electronic wallet system that allows Americans to deposit. And there are other options; gift cards have become a very popular option, and there are also virtual currencies like Bitcoin that are starting to gain traction.

In a sense, the regulatory atmosphere is loosening up. There are several states that are in the process of legalizing online gambling; Nevada and New Jersey are examples of this. But the provision under which the legislation was passed includes restrictions on who can have a gaming license. Generally it is limited to existing casinos and pari-mutuel establishments, so the online casino operators who have spent years creating their own brand will be left out in the cold. However, there will be certain options for citizens who live within those states and wish to engage in online casino gaming in a manner in which they can use any and all available methods to deposit.
