The good ol’ US of A. After the launch of Casinomeister.US this year, it was apparent that this great nation was still “sitting on its hands” metaphorically speaking.
For a country that considers card games like Black Jack and Poker to be family games, and that has some form of legalized gambling in 48 of its 50 states, it is astonishing that the US is about as stagnant as pond water when it comes to gambling on the Internet.
This is the country that gave us the technology to land people on the moon. It was the catalyst for home computers, Microsoft, the Internet, Apple, Facebook, Amazon.com, Google, YouTube, Bluetooth, Netflix, iMax, do I need to keep going? The US leads the world in technology, it leads the world in land based casinos and the proper and expected gambling experience, but politics and self-serving a-holes have put a spanner in the cogs of progressiveness.
At least New Jersey is moving along – awesome games from IGT, Nextgen, and NetEnt are available to its residents. But no one lives there, and the ones who do don’t seem to realize that gambling online with a New Jersey licensed casino is 100% legit. But the rest of the country? Not too much is going on.
And it looks as though not much real change is in store for the “land of the free” gambling-wise. One thing for sure though, the US is guaranteed some real entertainment with the upcoming hoedown between Trump and whomever. By the time I start typing away on the 2016 awards, we will know for sure who will be sitting in the White House, and we will also know who still will be sitting on one’s hands.
