BTW...if you're ever looking for a rep in Oz....I'm the wizard LOL.
Congrats to Nevada and they rightly took a swipe at NJ and Christie. Thanks again to Christie for looking out only for his friends and making stupid decisions. He was so busy pumping public money, including pension money, into the Revel Casino that he forgot to think about anything else. The only holdup in NJ is all the corrupt hands going into the till. Nevada will get it right. As usual NJ will get it wrong and billions in revenue will go missing. Now Christie just has to figure out a way to blame school teachers.
If somehow they can then offer poker to foreign jurisdictions, then we'd really be talking.
This is nice, but it's of limited impact, IMO.
Sounds like you r a teacher from NJ
I found this nifty little outdated article but relevant
IMHO, this is the first sign of reason breaking the ice. With economy still far from recovery after the crisis - states should consider any source of additional income possible. With NV and ТО leading the way - others will want their piece of the pie as well and gradually move in the same direction. Hopefully, eventually number of states doing the same will get to the point there will no longer be a point to keep strict regulations on federal level as well. The same process appears to be going all across the world - in times like this, governments simply cannot ignore online gambling as source of revenue. So most likely, we will see more and more jurisdictions allowing and even licensing online gambling.
I agree with this, but unfortunately, I do not see any new states passing online gambling regs in 2013. Illinois is a long shot and all other states have already seen a bill die or not introduced at all. I feel that 2013 will see launches by DE and NV. NJ will probably be late 2013 or early 2014. People in the other 47 states will have to hope the launch is successful and that their states will not want to miss out.
IMO, we should forget about a federal law. I just do not see how there is enough support for that until it is far too late. Gambling is a state right anyway so a fed law might even make things worse as it may be subjected to lawsuits from the antis.
