Difference between Online Casino Games and Land-based Casino Games 0

Posted on April 09, 2018 by Cathy Carter

online-gamesThere’s no doubt that casinos are fun. But how often do you get to go to a casino? Unless you’re filthy rich and you live somewhere near a casino, you don’t go to a casino every now and then. For most of the people it’s like a birthday thing or an anniversary thing and for some people who do not have any casinos in their country it’s a rare international holiday thing. This is where online casino games are different. You can play online casino games from wherever you are and whenever you want. You can lie down on your bed in your sweatpants and sip on some cola while gambling for some good money.

Online casino games have an edge over land-based casino games because of many reasons including convenience, lower rake, and the fact that you get to play a lot of games and you get to play all the time if you want to; literally every day if you love online casino games. You can take down notes while you’re playing online casino games to track your opponents’ movements and patterns which you really cannot do when you’re playing in a real casino. You win or lose money in haste and online casino games give you the time to think and plan things even though you cannot really plan the entire thing. Read the rest of this entry →

Guide to Sports Betting Online for Americans 1

Posted on February 13, 2017 by Tore Johannessen

sports-gamingThere’s no denying the fact Americans love to bet on sports. For example, there’s plenty of evidence showing that some players on the Chicago White Sox accepted bribes in order to purposely lose the 1919 MLB World Series.

The sports betting industry is now worth multiple billions annually. A lot of money is wagered in Nevada where people can legally bet on sports, but even more money is wagered offshore using online sportsbooks.

We’re not lawyers and won’t discuss the legalities of betting online because they vary by state, but there’s no federal law preventing Americans from betting on the internet and we’ve never heard of individual bettors being prosecuted.

With that being said, it’s illegal to operate an online sportsbook, which is why they’re all located offshore. There are several popular licensing jurisdictions, including Kahnawake (Canada), Curacao, Malta, Antigua and Isle of Man.

The US government also makes it difficult to operate an online bookie by having banks block transactions. This is why it’s difficult to deposit for American bettors, although there are still simple methods available.

For many years now most bettors have been using Western Union or MoneyGram to send and receive money. The one downside is the fees associated with these payment methods, which really cuts into most bettors profit margin. Read the rest of this entry →

How Online Gambling Is Faring in the 3 States Where It’s Legal? 2

Posted on November 06, 2014 by Dean Hybl
Atlantic City offers legal gambling opportunities.

Legalized online gambling in New Jersey has become a success as Atlantic City struggles.

Online gambling continues to exist within a murky, gray legal area that usually forces bettors to play through off-shore websites due to the restrictions and loopholes present in the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. While this option is popular and well-utilized, bettors in Delaware, New Jersey, and Nevada actually get to enjoy the experience of legal gaming in-person. Pioneers in state-run, online gambling, these three states have taken on the brave, new world of betting on the Internet in order to capture the dollars that were going to offshore sites. The experience is still new, but it seems to be working out satisfactorily — with a few hiccups and disappointments.

Ten more states are considering measures that would allow online gambling, but they are holding off for the moment while they gauge the success of the three states trying their luck. For online bettors everywhere, the fate of online betting rests almost entirely in the hands of Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware. Here’s a closer look at how legal, online gambling is going in each of these pioneering states.

New Jersey
New Jersey has long been acquainted with gambling, and in true Jersey fashion has made a wide range of casino games available to the online bettor, so long as he or she is within state lines and over the age of 21. Since gambling has been a part of New Jersey for over three decades, its foray into the online version can seem less than newsworthy, but with brick and mortar casinos in Atlantic City struggling, the move has seemed like a wise one. The state’s casinos have seen a considerable financial dip as neighboring states put up competing casinos, and offshore legal gambling sites attract more and more bettors.

In an attempt to shore up declining gambling revenue and the casinos behind most of that revenue, the new state-sanctioned online sites can only operate through the casinos. So, how’s it going? Since it started allowing and regulating betting on the Internet, New Jersey has generated roughly $11 million each month, and while that falls short of the projections of $1 billion that the state was banking on, it’s still helpful money for a cash-strapped state. Unfortunately, because New Jersey was expecting much higher revenues, the initial rollout has been largely deemed a failure.
