Virginia considering Online Gambling

September 17, 2014

West Virginia could become the new online gambling state in the US. The West Virginia Gambling Commission has had to bring the attention of the US state after the horrible decision made on the land-based gambling market when the anti-smoking bill was introduced for all gambling establishment. The state of West Virginia acted in a very domineering manner as has imposed smoking bans in all of the casinos, creating a mass departure of players who have chosen the online gaming industry instead. So far, the US state of West Virginia is experiencing vast losses from the gambling market as the State figures has been shown recently with a 4% drop in state lottery and 5% drop in casino. The state of West Virginia is considering this option due to the great situation the other online gambling states are benefitting from already. States’ profits from online gambling are rapidly boosting the states’ revenues. The West Virginia Gambling Commission has suggested adapting new strategies as many others, like the West Virginia Lottery, are also struggling to create any revenue at all. West Virginia Lottery is finding practically impossible to boost up the tickets sale as the gas stations (main kiosks for any US lottery) are disappearing with the self-service pumpers. West Virginia Lottery Director John Musgrave urges the state to work on a new legislation to create some revenues, especially from the online gambling industry: “Land-based competition from other states encourages early online adaptation. We’re still exploring online gaming because we feel that’s the way the industry’s moving, so we want to plan for it. We have not yet made any decision for how we’re going to implement it, but we are looking at it, studying it and seeing how our casinos in our jurisdiction can move in that direction”.
