Roulette News

As we have previously reported, Casino Mogul Sheldon Adelson has waged a war against online casinos and legislation in some US states that will allow different types of online gambling within their state’s borders.

As a casino owner it is in Adelson’s interest to have online gambling completely banned in the United States as online gambling generates a tough competition for traditional land-based casinos as many gamblers prefer to gamble form the comfort of their own homes rather than travel to places like Las Vegas of Atlantic City.

While some other traditional casino owners have embraced the online casino industry, entered into partnership with big software companies and established online casinos and bookmakers in the hope of finding a way of incorporating online and offline gambling in a way that will benefit their business, Adelson has remaind adamant that online gambling should be banned and vowed to fight the on-line industry with all his might and wealth.

Now it has been reported that Adelson was able to recruit several legislators that will with him fight an industry that seems to be unstoppable. Now Congressman Jason Chaffetz from Utah and Senator Lindsay Graham from South Carolina, both conservative republicans, are attempting to pass federal legislation which will ban the attempts of individual states to legislate within their borders in a way that will allow online gambling.

Many people, both within the online industry and offline industry, are convinced that Adelson is wasting his money and that eventually online gambling will be allowed in the whole of the U.S. as progress cannot be halted and old dinosaurs like Adelson will soon pass from this world.
