Leading online casino SuperCasino has responded to news that two new online poker bills have been introduced in California.
California looks closer to legalising online gambling following news that two new bills have been introduced, iGamingBusiness reports. Introduced as an urgency bill, Bill AB 2291 requests that online poker is allowed in the state, while other internet gambling would be prohibited. The bill also calls for civil penalties to be given to those partaking in illegal online gambling, with the proceeds contributing to an Unlawful Gambling Enforcement Fund. Another bill, Bill SB 1366, also calls for online poker to be legalised in California.
Introduced as urgency bills, a two-to-three majority is needed for the bills to be passed. If successful, the bills would take effect immediately.
As experts in the online casino industry, the team at SuperCasino regularly follow industry news from around the world. A representative for the company was interested in news of bills to legalise online poker in California and shared their thoughts:
“While these bills call for the legalisation of online poker, it suggests that the state could be one step closer to legalising online gambling as a whole. The legalisation and regulation of online casinos in New Jersey has been rife in recent months after legalisation in November 2013 so it’s welcome news that bills are being introduced for other states in the USA. This move could help the sector to grow significantly. It was recently reported that gambling gross win from online casinos in New Jersey rose by 28% during January, signifying just how popular the industry can be. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that other locations in America and around the world will be looking into legalising and regulating online gambling. We look forward to following the progress of the bills in California and hearing news of other worldwide locations legalising online gambling.”
