Online Casino Revenues up without US Input

A leading online casino group recently reported that its online casino revenues were up by 20 percent during the third quarter.

A leading online casino group recently reported that its online casino revenues were up by 20 percent during the third quarter. These results did not include US operations revenues. Overall, the online casinos group earned US 38 million dollars in the three months to September 30th, 2006 outside the US market, compared to US 32 million dollars last year.

‘Since suspending real money services to US based customers in October 2006, no negative impact on the non-US business has been observed in either casino or in poker revenues,’ stated the online casino group. Non-US online casino membership grew by 5 percent between the end of the second and third quarters. The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act which was recently passed in the US has not had the affect on European online casino players as analysts had predicted.

It seems no matter how hard the US tries to stamp out online casino gaming within US borders and around the world, it is unable to do so successfully, especially with so many countries turning towards legalization and regulation of online casino gaming. This is an industry which grows stronger and stronger on a daily basis, and which will continue its growth in popularity among online gambling fans. There is nothing the US can do to stop the spread of online gambling accept go against it, which it is doing, or join the rest of the world and make online casino gaming legal. So far, the US continues to choose to avoid the online gambling industry all together.

Online Casino Legalization Possible in SA

The online gambling world watched in November as South African police of the organized crime unit busted several online casino operators in that country, and now may watch in the first part of 2006 as South Africa legalizes online gambling. This is the case even as online casino gambling in South Africa remains a fringe sector of the overall gambling industry in SA.

The online gambling world watched in November as South African police of the organized crime unit busted several online casino operators in that country, and now may watch in the first part of 2006 as South Africa legalizes online gambling. Reports coming in over the online casino newswires indicate that if a certain proposal put forward by the national gambling board is accepted by Trade and Industry Minister Mandisi Mpahlwa, the currently illegal use of online casinos by the relatively few South Africans who have some sort of internet connection (one in ten households) could transform itself into a mainstream practice.

This is the case even as online casino gambling in South Africa remains a fringe sector of the overall gambling industry in SA. The national gambling board receives on average over a period of three months 361 calls, and only a couple of them pertain to online casino requests. South African companies, should online casino gambling be legalized, could stand to profit from an industry that generated profits of US$3 billion in 2001, US$8 billion in 2004, and by 2010 could be seeing revenues worth tens times the amount in 2004 or more…not too shabby a showing in dollars even though the United States of America, like South Africa, views gambling at online casino sites as illegal.

One of the major influences for the decision to recommend online casino legalization is the desire to prevent criminal influences from taking control of the currently illicit (in South Africa) online gambling trade and establish government regulations and consumer protections so that South Africans are not exploited by non-regulated, illegal companies providing questionably safe online casino services to even the smallest of segments of the South African population. Nothing is assured, at this point, but if South Africa goes the way of online casino legalization you can bet online gambling enthusiasts in other countries are going to increase the pressure on their governments as well if those governments see online casinos as illegal.
