When the NBA’s commissioner says that expanded gambling is “inevitable“, you know that you’re about to witness a major change in the country’s online gambling scene. This represents a massive opportunity for the US to get with the program and expand online gambling. Plenty of European countries have land based casinos and online casinos. The idea that land based casinos are going to vanish simply because people want to be able to bet on things from their laptops and mobile phones is absurd. The money goes back into the economy sooner or later. What do you think people are going to do with their winnings? Save them? Hardly. Once you win money form the casino, it’s your to do with as you see fit.
There’s no one telling you what to do, how to do it, or when. Online gambling is completely in your control, and that’s why the U.S. needs to expand out to other forms of gambling.
The online sports betting market is absolutely huge, and represents the most opportunity. Imagine being able to bet on all of the games naturally without any hassles or concerns. That’s not going to be a pipe dream forever, but it is something that’s going to take some time.
Why? Politics, of course. Lobbying groups are determined to stop the spread of online gambling, lest they lose profits. But the tastes of the consumer are changing in a way that we think is interesting, to say the very least.
What do you think? Should the U.S. go ahead and get on board with online gambling fully? Or do you think the local betting outlets are more than enough? Feel free to share your opinions with us; we’re listening!
