ORLANDO, Fla., July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OnlineCasino.info is pleased to announce that it will be using its news blog to track legal and regulatory issues affecting the international online gambling industry.
Using the .info domain extension, the recently launched website is primarily focused on providing informative updates on the internet gambling industry at large, including information on regulatory jurisdictions, casino games and online casino operators.
According to company spokesperson, Nikolette Lewis, "OCinfo makes for the perfect outlet in providing realtime updates on the ever-changing landscape of online gambling regulation and legality."
A fast-changing industry, online gambling is increasingly becoming a topic of interest for countries throughout the world - US state governments in particular. In the last year alone, Delaware, Nevada and New Jersey became the first states to pass online gambling regulatory laws. Lawmakers in other states, including California, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Colorado and Connecticut, are showing an interest in doing the same.
"As more lawmakers introduce bills, and as these bills either get rejected, re-drafted and/or passed into law, our team will be tracking it all and publishing updates on the OnlineCasinoInfo blog," said Lewis.
Without federal legislation in the US, it will be important for prospective online gamblers to know the specific laws of the state in which they reside. For example, both casino gaming and poker are available in New Jersey, while in Nevada, only online poker is currently available to residents.
Internationally speaking, the online gambling industry is also going through big changes. Europe itself has a similar structure to the US, in which laws vary between neighboring countries. Since the UK became the first country to regulate online gambling in 2005, several additional countries in the EU have regulated to varying extents.
According to Lewis, the Online Casino Info Industry News Blog is also tracking international updates within the iGaming industry.
"Even if you do not live in Europe, keeping a finger on the pulse of the industry is a great way to gauge what kind of gambling options are out there. Considering the large number of regulatory jurisdictions, as well, it pays to know what casino operators are required, by law, to provide their customers. And that kind of information is what we are committed to sharing with players."
OCinfo is an online resource for all things related to internet casinos and online gambling. With an emphasis on legal and regulatory news, OCInfo covers both B2B and consumer affairs within the online gambling industry, from 101 tutorials to industry analysis.
