Online gambling industry turned out to be in a very delicate situation due to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA). Lots of American players have been lost because of the Act. And it is unknown what other laws will be passed to close the tap on the industry.
Fortunately not all the countries think like the USA. Thus, British government thinks that prohibition won’t help. Regulation is the thing they hope for. Since online casinos can be accessed at home, more and more people prefer to play at home. Regarding this fact, the British provide careful analysis, regulation and licensing. In this case “both operators and players are protected and can thrive in this industry”.
