Nebraska, Virginia, and Colorado Widening Casinos' Accessibility

Colorado changes single-ber limits

Comparatively minimal changes to the gambling legislation were approved in Colorado. The citizens of Cripple Creek, Black Hawk, and Central City voted for canceling the $100 single-ber limit that had been applied to casino games. Interestingly, these cities approved casino and betting activity only a half year ago, and the new portion of changes came somewhat quickly.

Casinos now approved in Virginia

Four cities in the state of Virginia showed a dominant victory of casino adoption over the opposite variant. Portsmouth, Norfolk, Bristol, and Danville have adopted opening gambling venues, while Richmond is also expected to join this list soon. Virginia has old horse racing traditions, and the state citizens approved opening online betting shops in 2021.

Nebraska decided to allow gamblers not to leave the state for gambling

During the election day, Nebraska citizens had to approve three initiatives concerning gambling. As all of them successfully passed the voting process, horse racing tracks will host casino games. At the same time, it means the creation of the regulatory body. According to the rough calculations, the state will keep about $400M inside the state as punters will be allowed to gamble in Nebraska. This initiative also will open almost 5000 vacancies and is expected to bring about $65M via taxes.

Is the gambling wave storming the US?

Absolutely, yes. Many US locations understand that a well-regulated gambling industry brings a lot of revenues, while restrictions force citizens to travel to Las Vegas, which doesn't prevent from ludomania. A lot of world-leading companies have already noted that betting is gaining momentum in the US and preparing for the upcoming licensing procedures.
