US mobile poker is on the rise, because more states are moving toward legalization — that is, while the Federal laws (and the Obama administration) preserve a certain loophole that exists in the nation’s telecommunications law. This could change if certain Congress members and lobbyists succeed in passing new anti-gambling laws.

Top US Online Poker

The top US poker sites are probably Full Tilt, PokerStars and Bovada (aka BoDog) in terms of brand recognition. Some of that fanfare, of course, was earned through the notoriety of getting busted by the US Feds, strangely! But, all is back to normal now with them, and players are happy.

Just because the big dogs have speckled pasts doesn’t mean American mobile Poker is off to a sketchy, shadowy start. The opposite is true: as states that legalize online gambling write their new laws, license contracts and tax codes (the process of regulating a marketplace for casino entertainment), plenty of scrutiny is falling on this new area business.

Some big European casino brands like 888 are providing consulting to American land-based casinos as they transition online. Already much money is being invested by mega brands like Caesars to catch an early lead.

Legal Background

Legally, real-money gaming has been prohibited in the USA for a long time, aside from designated places in certain states that passed legalization. The online version of casinos is strictly prohibited for Americans.

However, certain national wire-tap laws have a flexibility in their wording, which any individual state could use as a legal basis to regulate online gambling within that state. The capability to keep the gaming within a certain area has been a technical obstacle.

So far, the Obama administration has not pursued the handful of states that have legalized online and mobile casinos. They are Delaware, New Jersey and Nevada, of course.

New challenges from various centers of power in the political and casino worlds are introducing new legislation that will specifically outlaw the movement of gambling online (for fear it will hurt children when accessible from home computers, laptops and the family iPad or iPhone).

Legal States

The currently-legal states for gambling mentioned above have had land-based gambling for some time (some of it in Indian reservations, which is legally present in many states with indigenous peoples in them).

The motives include protecting their pro-gambling reputations, their ‘brands’ for tourism, while also using their brand-name advantages to form early leads, vying with other legal states. The mighty Vegas has the most to lose and to gain, so Nevada was the first state to really spearhead its online casino.

The next state with a hot seat in this market is New Jersey, with its runner-up brand to Vegas, Atlantic City, which has the benefit of having a beach, to boot.

While the big payoff to states is the tourism boom aimed at casino-lovers (especially if the Great Recession eases off), the other big draw for progressive states is the immense tax influx from casinos’ rising profits. Those taxes will ease states’ budget crises and improve the lives of even those people who don’t gamble.

Next to Legalize

With the success of the forerunners above, new states definitely will consider this powerful form of state taxation income. Already, Washington DC, a small quasi-state, had its own pro-gambling agenda move forward (called iGaming) in the courts — only to get mired in a corruption case. In DC, that figures!

About 10-15% of American states are known to have courted with getting into the USA online poker and casino racket, so to speak! Americans have always love gambling; it has figured in the formation of the country, politically and economically. The UK, perhaps even bigger bettors, already have a successful regulated gambling scheme.

Even a massive state like California is cautiously studying this move — but since it is as large as a small country, with an astronomical economy, the dangers are large if it is a mistake to legalize. It will likely start with limited gaming, like just Poker, or enhanced lottery games.

2014 Outlook

We’re feeling quite excited about this year in online and mobile casino entertainment, and for the first time we can include 3 great states that have legalized Web-based gambling within their borders.

Any person willing to put cash on their clicks in the US has had certain problems with the banking side of things — Federal law still prohibits any bank or credit card to process gambling money.

The bank account tie-ups for players are in one area that will improve dramatically in 2014, and henceforth. Creative payment methods (like Europe’s Ukash and Neteller) will grow up here to meet the demand, with PayPal-Casino services in an early lead.

Online security is pretty much solved for players and for casinos. The top software available has made even mobile banking easy and safe (if you use alternatives to credit cards).

But fraud (that is, by the owners of mobile casinos) could continue to be a real problem — there is an awful lot of money to be made in the opening US market.
