An online casino does not need to be located in Canada in order for Canadian players to enjoy it. In fact, many of the top online casinos enjoyed by Canadians are located in other countries. Some of the most popular, well-known and established online casinos are physically located in Europe. However, they create a forum for Canadian players to enjoy.

America banned online casinos a few years ago. This created a number of difficulties for American players because they had to find ways of playing their favourite games by breaking the law. However, in 2013 the State of New Jersey decided to legalise online gambling. New Jersey is one of the most densely populated of America’s 50 states. States in America have the ability to change and review internal laws and legislations. Although online gambling is banned throughout America, states do have the capacity to change their own laws. This has been the case in New Jersey.

Many Canadian players were interested to see what type of online casinos might be developed from the American state. However, legislation states that online gambling in New Jersey will only be offered to individuals who are physically in the state. This means that Americans can only legally play at an online casino from New Jersey. In addition, any online casinos which are developed and created in New Jersey can only be played by New Jersey residents.

New Jersey will implement screening in order to locate where players are playing from. Players will also be required to sign up for online gambling through a casino based in Atlantic City.

Kansas Gambling Ban Failed Wed, 10 Apr 2013 14:24:03 +0000 Continued]]> Kansas Gambling Ban Failed

A gambling expansion bill was passed in Kansas, a state located in the Midwest part of the United States. The bill sought to build and establish a new land based casino in the state’s South Eastern corner. The problem is that this was a non-gambling zone. The bill also included a ban on online gambling which would make playing games such as poker and slots online illegal. It is believed that this was added into the bill to appease anti-gambling legislators in south east corner of Kansas.

The Senate Bill 2055 would have seen the amendment pertaining to online gambling occur on a separate vote. However, senators who had originally voted to add to the amendment switched their vote once they were able to get a look at the final and complete bill.

The bill would have banned slot games in certain gaming venues until 2032. It would also have seen a reduction in growth and development of other land based casinos in the area. The south east corner of the state is one of four gambling zones in Kansas. However, it is the only one which has not attracted casino development. Legislators of this zone were supporters of the bill, seeing it as an opportunity to bring economic growth to the area. However, the bill’s amendment would have made online gambling illegal. The activity would have been classed as a Class B misdemeanour and would have seen some very strict penalties. In fact, a fine of up to $1 000 and a 6 month stint in jail would have been possible.
