East Coast Gaming Conference Offers Plenty of Information

East Coast Gaming Conference Offers Plenty of Information This week’s East Coast Gaming Conference in Atlantic City gave delegates plenty of useful industry information.

The general tone of the conference was based on the legalization of online gambling in Delaware, New Jersey and Nevada and its slow start. The reasons for this have been determined, are being handled and in time will continue to grow.

David Rebuck, director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, revealed that his team is taking steps toward combating illegal operators by sending out cease-and-desist letters.

California's chief regulator, Richard Schuetz, estimates that there are a million punters making illegal wagers within the state.

Borgata CEO Tom Ballance believes that there is promise in legalized online gambling.

At the conference, New Jersey Senator, Ray Lesniak said, “I have legislation being drafted, and that will be introduced, to allow casinos and racetracks to have sports betting on our premises.”

"We just won’t be able to regulate it [in terms of the law]. We pushed the envelope with internet gaming, and we will push the envelope on sports betting. And we are not going to be deterred.”
  • Don't you just love hearing that strong stand their taking to combat illegal operators, "we're sending out cease-and-desist letters." Oh no, not that.......... I have no doubt that the 1 million illegal punters in California is a correct assumption. There are many things that should be illegal or remain illegal. If the legislators at the federal and state level can distinguish between the issues that should become and remain illegal in the US, the appropriate level of effort could be taken to eradicate those areas.
