Legal Online Casino Games

Numerous laws that deal with different kinds of gambling appeared as a result of the rapid growth of gambling industry and the spread of casino games in different countries and online. But while many land gambling establishments suffer from the new legislation online gambling is developing. These days you can see a great number of advertisements on the web that promote various online gambling venues and invite the players from all over the world to wager money on the Internet and spend cash on gambling. But is it really so easy to play any card or slot game and earn money on the Internet from all corners of the Earth?

It is not unexpected that the biggest part of online and land players come from America. The heart of gambling, Las Vegas, where the biggest and most popular land gaming establishments are located, is in the USA, the state of Nevada. Most of the online casinos are based in the European and Caribbean countries and such business brings good money for the countries budget and creates many work places for locals.

According to the Justice Department Internet gambling is illegal in most areas of the USA and the use of the communication wires for wagering is not permitted by the Federal Wire Act. So, the law doesn't allow Internet casinos to accept wagers from the US residents via credit cards. But the law doesn't deal with any other kind of gambling activities that is why many states do not ban ground casinos. In addition, it is impossible to regulate gambling business in the other countries where the law doesn't prohibit it. At last, the number of various payment options allows the players from different countries play at Internet casinos.

The launching of Internet gaming business without the license is illegal in the United States. Still, if the owner of the casino wishes to get license there are no special authorities granting gaming licenses in the United States. The World Trade Organization that regards the US actions forbidding gambling activities agrees with the local laws that prohibit gambling in Louisiana, Utah, Massachusetts, and South Dakota.

Some of the European countries, such as the UK, start to legalize online betting. Of course, the licensing of most Internet casinos will aid to prevent money-laundering and amend the gambling conditions for all the players. According to common thoughts it will also decrease the level of gambling addiction among adults and youngsters.
