    Question Which likely market would you most like to see legalize iGaming in the next year?

    Last week The Buzz made a post about GBGC's Seven gambling predictions for 2017.

    Prediction number four was about Japan, Brazil, India and Germany:

    Each of the four is a potentially significant market in its own right and all four governments are considering the legalisation or relaxation of their gambling laws. The four have a combined population of 1.7 billion people. Predictions about future markets have always led to disappointment because the deregulation never seems to satisfy the ambitions of the gambling industry. However the growing middle class of India, the population of Brazil and the high income per capita of both Germany and Japan lead us towards optimism. The terms of the licence and taxation will be important. If all four countries opened up their gambling markets it would be like a new Klondike gold rush for the industry. I would settle for any one of the four. No predictions for fear of cursing the prospect.

    So, for this week's poll I thought I would ask folks what market they would most like to open up and become legal. Besides voting in the poll, be sure to share your reasoning and how likely you feel it is that one or more of these countries will open up in the next year.
