    Default Report: As many as 15 U.S. states could become online gaming candidates in 2018

    Excellent piece from Steve Ruddock for PlayUSA.com breaking down the possibility of last month's news from Pennsylvania causing a domino effect in the U.S. for iGaming regulation.

    If you’re optimistic, you consider the legalization of online gaming in Pennsylvania a pivotal moment in US online gaming history. The state is a linchpin that will lead to a domino effect in other states.

    If you’re a pessimist, Pennsylvania is simply the first state since 2013 to legalize online gambling. Plus, it only did so to plug a sizable hole in its budget.

    The reality is somewhere in between.

    Multiple states were already considering online gaming bills. The incremental progress made in 2017 should entice some new states to take a look at online gaming. Hopefully it pushes some of the current candidates across the finish line.
    Ruddock goes on to write that the five most likely U.S. states to push through legislation in 2018 are New York, Illinois, West Virginia, Connecticut and New Hampshire and also lays out five "dark horse" candidates and five "problematic states."

    If online gaming becomes legal in the additional states it is great news for the industry. It is unfortunate that for all the "reasons" the states expressed over the years rejecting online gaming it may now be acceptable as it is "a source of revenue for the state". Regardless of the reason still great news for the online gaming industry.

    Why you think so. It is bad news.

    Grey markets are the best for affiliate marketing.

    You make a very good point. I am just looking at it from an access to legal players point of view as a good thing.

    I had NewYorkOnlineGambling.com for a while but I let it go and later regretted that. New York is such a major state.

    Several years ago i was optimistic too. But now I am agree with Sherlock. All this "legalization" and "regulation" in USA is far away from free market and honest competition. As we see on NJ legalization - this market open doors only for small amount of industry players. In NJ case - for several US landbased operators. We, affiliates, may survive only on markets with honest competitions between operators.
