Very interesting announcement from LVS today - they plan to start an online casino.
Nevada regulated companies have tried this in the past - MGM Mirage had their WagerWorks system that they shutdown in 2004.
US citizens are prohibited from gambling in online casinos and the laws surrounding that have recently gotten stronger with the government taking aim at the financial institutions used to move the money around. Despite it being illegal, online gambling in the US is widespread.
I think this is fascinating. Online gaming is such a lucrative market, I'm not surprised these guys want a piece. I hope this works well and proves that these operators can run reliable games.
