Despite the US housing the world’s most popular gambling casino destinations in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, online gambling remains illegal for residents despite the growing outpour of players wanted to play over the internet. The government has resisted allowing legalization of online gambling since money is being dished out to casinos overseas instead of keeping funds in house.  

Nevertheless, residents from New Jersey are taking a strong stance on allowing online gambling to be permitted. Players have pushed the motion to NJ Governor Christie to sign a new law that passes an online gambling bill. Additionally, residents from Nevada are also trying to legalize this activity. As of now, online betting is not allowed to those living outside the boarders of Nevada. In fact, the state’s jurisdiction required $500K simply for a license fee to allow this an $250K that will go towards Renewal fees. This imposes extremely high prices from the state just to allow this online entertainment.

While Governor Christine opposed the legislation to permit Internet Gambling, the Senate overruled his vote by 32-2 favoring online bets and legalizing poker, blackjack and additional casino games favorites. The House of Assembly also overruled his vote with 63-11.

Other developments of legalizing online gambling within the US have also been reported. Last year in 2010, a company in Nevada created an application for resident to wager over a smart phone. This application works in real time and done at the click of a button.  Additionally, Caesars Entertainment Corp. has been partnering with the well known, Gibraltar-based 888 Holdings PLCwhich has established itself as a world leader in the UK online gaming market. If a deal is made between Caesars and 888 Holdings, it would bring Caesars to the top spot of the online gaming industry.
