Biggest iGaming Events of 2013
US Regulated Market Opens
Two years ago at this time, the idea that three U.S. States would be offering regulated online gambling have been nothing short of laughable yet here we are.
After years of planning and infrastructure building, three US states (Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey) have all launched licensed legal igaming products for their citizens in 2013.
All three markets are still pretty young, so drawing meaningful conclusions is pretty tough. That said, all three markets met with only limited technical difficulties during their launches, which seems like a good sign.
A more ominous sign came from big US banks and credit card companies who just can’t seem to be bring themselves to process gambling transactions…even when they’re perfectly legal.
Whether or not players actually come out of the woodwork to support those sites is another matter entirely (and why throw cold water on a good time?)
