Legal status with regards to online casino games remains to be confusing and complicated in the US. While a couple of states have legalized online gambling, many Americans still bet at offshore web-based casinos licensed by Kahnawake Gaming Commission as well as Gaming Curacao. The Americans have kept betting at offshore web-based gambling websites since mid 1990’s.
As such, wagering on online gambling websites is not a new thing. But what’s new is that in contrast to how it was during the 1990’s and the 2000’s, a few places now in the country allow you to gamble online at state regulated and licensed online casinos. New Jersey had passed laws in order to approve web-based casino gambling and poker back in the year 2013. The New Jersey residents can bet on any officially regulated and licensed gaming websites in the state. On the other hand, West Virginia and Delaware have passed their own laws in order to approve licensed online gaming for their residents.
For most of the US, web-based gambling still remains unlicensed and it isn’t legal for majority of Americans to wager online. Several states are presently proposing bills which would regulate and legalize online casinos as well as web-based sports wager services for their residents. All of these changes have been possible due to New Jersey’s step of legalising online gambling across the country and proving that such a model actually works.
