UK Online Casino, Macau Casino, and Other International Gambling News
With the UK being the first major country in the world to legalize and regulate
online casino gambling, and them also
being a part of the EU, International gambling news has become an almost daily expectation. Spain is currently
the leading Internet gambling country in the world, behind of course the United States. Italy was the first
major country in the world to illegalize online casinos, but then they changed those restrictions in favor
of a more permissive perspective.
The UK is in the process of developing regulations for their new laws that allow online casinos to operate from their land. News about that issue, along with court battles and other legal issues will be released here first.
And then there is Macau, or is it Macao? The China gambling mecca is seeing new casinos being produced on what seems like a daily basis. The Sands have gone to Macau, Steve Wynn has brought his brand to Macao, and just recently Playboy has announced a new casino and mansion to open up there. No matter which way its spelt Macau is present and moving forward.
For all your International Gambling and Casino News, stay tuned to this page of Casino Gambling Web.
