September 23, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) – iGaming Business, the masterminds behind Budapest Affiliate Conference, London Affiliate Conference, the iGB Super Show, and many other online gaming business events, has announced the release of a guide to iGaming legislation throughout the United States.
“What Next for US iGaming? The United States 2010 iGaming Report: A State by State Analysis of Legislative Progression” was researched and written earlier this year from more than 200 primary sources and over 50 interviews with industry figures, lawmakers, lobbyists, regulators, and others.
“This report is the single most comprehensive source of information on what has, is and potentially will happen regarding state legislation in the US,” iGaming Business representatives said. “It is a must have for anyone currently doing business in the states in land based casinos or for those online companies looking to move in once legislation changes.”
True enough — anyone who’s followed online gambling news in the past few years knows that, of the 50 states, a sizable number are debating implementing new online gambling laws, most of which would significantly change the iGaming business landscape in its respective market.
Addressing this, the report features a number of special sections that catalogue how specific states “unsuccessfully attempted to implement online regulation between 2001 and 2009, and how the country’s 44 lotteries are currently preparing for online expansion.”
“This report will give the market badly needed perspective on how developments in U.S. states are trending,” the report’s author, Chris Krafcik, commented. “It caters to all entities with an eye on U.S. developments – from London brokerage houses to Vegas casinos, from venture capital firms to technology suppliers – and offers a level of insight into state-level politics hitherto unavailable in any single report.”
