Gov. Kathy Hochul and legislative leaders may agree to authorize three casino licenses for New York City area. Seven gambling companies are spending roughly $300,000 a month on lobbying to push the state to fast-track the timetable for the final three casinos.

The Assembly, which is controlled by Democrats, did not include the acceleration of casino licences in its initial budget proposal.

Smoking and Gambling Go ‘Hand in Hand.’ But Maybe Not for Long.

Nicole Vitola is a dealer at Atlantic City's Borgata casino. She helped found a group called Casino Employees Against Smoking Effects. The group has chapters in Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. A bill to ban casino smoking in New Jersey has enough sponsors to all but guarantee passage. It has stalled, however, because of political issues. The number of smokers in the United States has shrunk by nearly half over the past two decades. They are 12.5 percent of adults in 2020, down from 23.3 percent in 2000. Smokers make up about 21 percent. of visitors to Atlantic city and 32 percent the casino's revenue.

Online gambling in CT brings uptick in revenue, problem betting

Connecticut legalized online and in-person sports betting and online casino games last October. The state has received more than $45 million in revenue since then. Online casino gaming has brought more monthly payments than online sports wagers. However, the state's revenue from retail sports bets was $193,000 in September. The number of problem gamblers in Connecticut has increased since the legalization. Calls to the problem-gambling hotline have increased 134 percent since. It's because of the ease of betting being at your fingertips. Health experts predict it has led to an increase in gambling addictions.

Pathways exist for online casino gambling in almost every U.S. state but obstacles remain

There are no laws limiting online casinos to a single state. The Wire Act of 1961 only applies to interstate traffic. There are over 30 states that have legalized sportsbetting since 2018. The potential exists for imminent expansion and growth in the sector. However, there are currently no known plans to create or expand any online casino in US. It is possible that the existing infrastructure and regulatory framework established for the explosive growth of sports betting can be easily adapted to oversight of online gambling. A US District Court in Rhode Island ruled that a 2018 opinion by the DOJ stating that all interstate gambling was illegal was flawed.
