Americans are no less adventurous than, say, the English. After all, a large part of their population is the descendants of colonists from great Britain. Las Vegas, this Mecca of excitement, only confirms the above. Ordinary Americans go to Nevada as if on vacation, and realizing that they will leave a lot of money there . The huge gambling market is languishing under a cloud.
They hit the weakest point of any US citizen – in his wallet. Profit is the key word for getting a real American ready. This is their national one. Supporters of allowing sports betting tempt the state and Federal governments with huge profits that will flow in the form of taxes to the budget. They set the example of the same Britain, where billions of pounds enrich the state every year on the passion of their citizens for the game.
The second reason, which is not shy to talk about those who advocate the legalization of betting shops, is the fight against the shadow sweepstakes. The battle with it is going with varying success, but still millions of dollars pass in front of the nose of local budgets in the pockets of unknown businessmen.
Meanwhile, the Americans are ready to play
A country with 330 million inhabitants can bring in untold revenues to its budget. Gambling Britons spend almost $ 18 billion a year on games, but the UK population is more than five times smaller. Up to a hundred billion dollars could be spent by players in the States, without letting this raging flow abroad and into the economic shadow.
Online betting in the USA
Naturally, no Agency will be able to set boundaries for the Internet. The Internet provoked an unprecedented growth in online betting, and Americans who were longing for the game immediately began to look for outlets to foreign offices that provide services on the network.
But still, the Americans themselves are engaged in organizing bets. If you can’t stay in the States, you can open an office somewhere in Bermuda. The main thing is to get a license, which is a guarantee that the bookmaker will not cheat. For the US government, the main problem presented by online betting is the outflow of huge amounts of money abroad and the fact that respectable Yankees outright violate the law.
