Is California next to offer iGaming license?

Some of the obstacles that are in the way of this iGaming compact to begin is that it would be harder to find gaming styles that compliment each other for each of the different states. Some of the names that have been tossed around are Nevada which operates on a liberal system where anyone could obtain a license to operate iGaming. In Delaware they would restrict the ability to operate to only one operator which would be 888.

Is California next to offer iGaming license?

With it’s neighbor Nevada already on board with regulated US online casinos, it’s no wonder that California may follow in it’s footsteps. Before Nevada finalized the documentation and opened their online casino, the state of California was in talks to open their own. However, it seems they just can’t get it right when it comes to submitting a bill that suits everyone. The smaller Native American tribes are having trouble holding on to the idea that it won’t affect their gaming and some of the large bands feel the same.

In a state-by-state regulated environment, California boasts a population of forty million which means that the revenue from this state could bring major money into the economy with a sizable player pool. One of the things they are trying to enact is a interstate gambling system for online players which would tie the players of California in with players from other states to create one big gaming market. Though it does not seem that California would need to create a larger playing pool, it may be a nice investment to other states.

Though Nevada is all for the interstate gambling option, the state of California has yet to pass a bill, open and then regulate their own online casinos or poker rooms. So this idea, may it be funded is a very far off vision.
