Online gambling has been a highly-discussed topic for quite some time now and this is because many people are interested in its state of regulation. It includes poker, casinos, and sports betting all taking place in the virtual realm. Many states are willing to participate legally in the online gambling industry which is currently legal at some places of the United State, to the likings of Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. The last one to join the bunch was the state of Pennsylvania, which made online gambling legal at the end of this October.
On a federal level online gambling is still considered illegal, but this has the potential to soon change, as the United States Supreme Court is going to soon revisit the Federal Sports Betting Ban (PASPA) from 1992 which prohibits all sports betting activities. In turn, several states are going to consider the regulation of sports wagering in 2018. The following months are expected to see a lot of development in the field which has the potential to shape the online landscape across the states. In the meantime, many states express their desire to make online gambling legal within their boundaries or at least have the freedom to make the decision themselves following a voting by the residents.
