USA Online Gambling & Casino News

When online betting news breaks in the states, will report on it here. But our editing guidelines will also be geared towards relating international betting news to the United States. For example, the UK has been regulating online casinos since 2005, so they now have almost a decade of information on the industry and when they publish reports on gaming the US will be closely watching, studying, and learning from the developments.

Although the US is not the leader in this burgeoning industry, the federal and state governments are in a position to follow the successful examples, and avoid the previous failures, of countries that have already given their citizens the freedom to bet online.

Below you will find the latest news related to online gambling in the United States.
