U.S. Digital Gaming, a venture founded by former casino executive Richard Bronson, is expected to name former entertainment industry executive Jon Richmond as its new CEO.

Bronson said he expects online gambling legalization to move from state to state, starting with online poker. He says "there's no doubt in my mind that this is upon us."

From the Wall Street Journal:

U.S. Digital Gaming was founded in 2009 by former casino executive Richard Bronson, who once ran development operations for casino impresario Steve Wynn's former company, Mirage Resorts, and remains close to Mr. Wynn.

The company, which currently has no revenue stream, is trying to position itself as a provider of all the services other companies would need to run online gambling sites, including software and guidance on laws and licensing rules.

It also expects to run Web sites for clients and handle marketing and advertising operations for them.
