Gibraltar Eyeing U.S. Online Gambling Market

Gibraltar Eyeing U.S. Online Gambling Market

It’s estimated that 60 percent of all online wagering in the world goes through Gibraltar’s 26 online casino businesses.

And with the United States about to have three states offering online gaming—Nevada, New Jersey, Delaware—the tiny British protectorate wants in on the U.S. market.

“Gibraltar is the largest jurisdiction in the world, the most successful jurisdiction in the world in the provision of online gaming,” said Fabian Picardo, chief minister of Gibraltar on a recent trip to Washington. “Online gaming is a burgeoning part of e-commerce and Gibraltar is at the forefront of that.”

“We believe that Gibraltar’s in pole position to demonstrate to each of the states of the United States that we have been respectful of its laws and that this demonstrates how regulated the industry is in Gibraltar,” Picardo concluded.
