    Question How many U.S. states do you believe will legalize online gaming before 2020?

    Back in March, 2013, when Delaware, Nevada and New Jersey had all legalized online gaming, we posted the following poll question:

    How many US states do you believe will legalize online gaming by the end of 2015?

    Amazingly, 39% of the respondents said "More than 30," and nobody (that's right, zero, zilch, nada) thought it would remain at just three states, which is where we still stand.

    So, now that it's been more than three years since we asked, we figured this would be an opportune time to pose the question again: How many U.S. states do you believe will legalize online gaming before 2020?

    Is everyone still confident that dozens of other states will manage to overcome all of the obstacles that have stood in their way the last three years, or has that optimism been diffused?

    And, of course, be sure to share the thinking behind your guess and your thoughts about affiliate marketing in a regulated US marketplace.

    Some of the more conservative states won't legalise within the period you mentioned, and because these laws take time to go through i would shoot somewhere around 15-20. One the snowball gains momentum things should pick up!

    In the short run, you might get a small handful of other states following suit, but in the v-e-r-y long run, I think that most states will definitely be following Delaware, Nevada and New Jersey's footsteps, especially if/when they see the monetary benefits that they are missing out on.
