New Approach to Online Casinos

The online casino industry in the United States has always had a love hate relationship with government and the authority figures. At the moment the United States government has been stuck in a conservative rut even though it seems like there are millions of Americans who enjoy gambling at online casinos. It does not seem like the voice of those millions of people are being heard and that the authority figures of the United States to the trust online casinos and the Internet gambling industry. As far as the online casino industry is concerned there is a blatant mistrust from the United States government which extends all the way back to the year 2006 when the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act was passed and therefore banned online casinos from the United States.

The online casino industry was put on hold in 2006 when the legislative changes occurred in the United States. Times have changed drastically since that time, to start is a completely different financial climate not just in the United States but globally. The online casino industry has also changed in the past couple of years. In the past couple of months it seems like there is an undeniable momentum which will eventually repealed the ban against online casinos in the United States. The man that is leading the fight for the online casino industry is Rep. Barney Frank. The hope for some of these politicians is that they will see the benefits of the money will be raised from taxation of online casinos and Internet gambling. The public will need to see exactly how the government will spend that money. Things that need to get accomplished like health care reform would be easier to do with all the revenue that taxing online casino will bring.

Only time will tell exactly what will happen with the online casino in the United States. Hopefully the new legislation will provide opportunities that have not been around since online casinos were banned in 2006. The change in legislation may not change the minds of people towards gambling, but maybe legalizing and taxing Internet gambling will actually do some good.
