Regulated Online Gambling Expansion In 2016? Your Guess Is As Good As Mine
Since New Jersey passed its online gambling bill in February of 2013, online gaming expansion in the United States has been, for lack of a better word, frustrating. A number of states have talked about online gambling, some have introduced bills, but thus far none has acted.

Gambling is growing in Pennsylvania – despite predictions to the contrary
Pennsylvania needed just a few years to bully past New Jersey and become the second-busiest gambling state in the country. But when Maryland jumped into the game in 2010 and Ohio two years later, many figured the Keystone State's best casino years had come and gone.
Now it appears the worry that the state's gambling industry was on an irreversible decline was premature. And much of the credit for the reversal goes to SANDS CASINO RESORT BETHLEHEM.
