US players have had to endure a lot in the past few years when it comes to Online casinos went. After the Gambling Act was changed in 2018, online casinos were legal - but not those from abroad! Many popular online casinos based in Malta or elsewhere have been banned from players from USA, although the newly opened US online casinos were not even close to being able to follow in their footsteps. That has changed in the meantime!
Evolution Gaming and even Greentube are on board
In the beginning there was in the brand new US online casinos just a handful of slots - no famous titles - and no live casino either. The promotions were also very sparse and many US players found these conditions to be an unreasonable expectation compared to what was offered abroad.
Fortunately, however, we can report that the US online casinos are developing faster than expected - and only for the better. Live casino provider Evolution gaming started broadcasting the live streams to federal online casinos a long time ago. Greentube, a subsidiary of Novomatic, whose games can be played with real money in certain US online casinos, caused great joy and probably also some envy on the part of the non-US, including the famous Book of Ra. This is not available anywhere else at the moment, as Novomatic has withdrawn from the online market in all other countries.
“The Swedish game software developer NetEnt also recently gained access to the US online market and is already offering its software in the online casinos of the Lucerne and Baden arcades."
Online casino for the US: different countries, different customs
A quick look at a rough summary of US political leadership over the past centuries reveals that the Confederates have always had their own mind and are not sheep-like followers. The small alpine country therefore often goes its own way.B. has also resulted in USA not being part of the European Union today, although geographically and culturally the country is really “right in the middle” of Europe.
USA also has this remarkable autonomy Effects on the local gambling community, because since last year their government decided that only US companies are allowed to have gaming licenses. Foreign companies in USA lose their license and have to close or. at Online casinos will block the websites for playing from USA. Over 100 pages of popular online casinos, most of them with licenses from Malta, have been blocked for US players. The problem? There was still no worthy replacement!
Initially a dilemma for the US
Since there were no US online gaming licenses until the law was renewed, there were initially no legal US online casinos in which one could have played. Only holders of existing US gaming licenses, So the operators of the land-based gambling halls could apply for one of the new online concessions and then open a legal US online casino. In mid-2019 the time had come and the first of these platforms opened their doors - however, the selection of games offered there was quite disappointing and under no circumstances was able to keep up with the foreign competition.
This tough crackdowns Of course, this happened for a very plausible reason: the US don't want to rake in their francs in other people's pockets, but prefer to put their own money in their own pockets. It also makes sense, every player knows that nobody likes to lose their capital. The only disadvantage was that, as a patriotic confederate, you would no longer have access to international offers, such as.B. from Leo Vegas Casino. But the way it looks today, maybe you don't need it anymore.
NetEnt is now also participating
Also the Swedish games Software developer NetEnt recently entered the US online market procures and already offers its software in the online casinos of the Lucerne and Baden gambling halls. NetEnt games will soon also be available in other US online casinos - both slots and live casino games. Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Ozzy Osbourne, Dead or Alive and many other player favorites can now also be gambled legally by the US.
So you can see that US online casinos are improving by leaps and bounds and you have to ask yourself: what will the situation look like in the next year? The US online casinos, which were almost laughed at at the beginning, will eventually become real player magnets?
That will become apparent over time, but today we are delighted that the US players are starting to get something out of the equation!
