    I'm still confused.

    As of today, three states have officially legalized online gambling: Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware although only Nevada has sites actually up and operating

    Is anyone here from Nevada? If so, are you playing?

    I'm mostly curious if and when my state legalizes, will I have to go to a land based casino to get verified, or can I just send documents like I have been doing? I have read here that people think or have read that players will have to go to land based casinos, but that seems odd to me, because what's the use of going online right?

    You're not the only one confused, but take heart! Even the regulators haven't ironed out all the details - I believe with regard to New Jersey, for example, they are still in the 'open for public comments' period prior to implementation of online regulations. Thus, nobody yet knows what the Department of Gaming in New Jersey is going to have to enforce.

    Common sense suggests to me that you'll need to go once to verify - if you've got a loyalty card, you may be able to use that account number as a login (because of course, you had to verify that you were an adult when you signed up for a loyalty card in order to gamble)? Who knows. But I guess once you're verified, you don't have to go back a re-verify.

    That's the thing that doesn't make sense to me, I just can't wrap my head around it. Take California for instance, what if the closest casino to you is 3 hours away? So they want you to drive 6 hours round trip, just to walk in for 5 minutes to show them your I.D.?

    I have no idea how this is going to work obviously, but that just doesn't make sense to me. I personally think we will be able to verify online.

    It wouldn't be offered by casino's but your Lottery could offer online gaming just like what Delaware is currently doing. Of course legislation would have to be passed for this to be allowed or the Lottery may have the power to do it, not sure.

    Then when states start forming pact's with each other you'll be able to play in other licensed states.

    Example: If Nevada forms a pact with N.J. at some point then if you live in Nevada you'd be able to play on the site's in N.J. and people in N.J. will be able to play on sites in Nevada.

    I can see many states working together within the next two - three years. :thumbsup:

    I think the US government is trying to find a solution to prevent each state from creating their own jurisdiction. They are trying to find a common solution from everybody.
