Have new casino launches slowed down?

3 replies • Last post

It seems that when I first started coming here that there were tons of new casinos coming out, but now it is rare that I hear of any good spots opening shop. Is this a real thing, or is it just because I have become a seasoned gambler that I don't notice the new launches?

Are there any good spots to visit nowadays?

No on the contrary I'd say there are many new ones opening up all the time. However they fail all the time too so the best course is usually to let them go for 6 months or a year before we review them to see how they operate and whether they last. The only brand new ones we tend to add are those that are run by experienced operators that have other casinos that we have already reviewed.

It seems that way to me, too, 'Slim, so you are not alone. I think we get used to the same old, same old, plus we have the issue of limits for us U.S. players. That may have something to do with us not hearing about as many new casinos?

I like the caution that CL uses. CL always has the best interest of PLAYERS at heart, and I appreciate that!

Ok I guess when you look at it from a U.S. perspective then yes, I'd agree that the pickings are a bit slim. The majority of new casinos opening up are predominantly servicing Europe, Asia and other markets. Running a casino that serves U.S. players is hard because the payment processing is a real battle due to the UIGEA law.

However you should soon see a bunch of new ones opening up that are properly licensed and regulated inside the USA, with the caveat that they will only accept players from within their jurisdictions. New Jersey is due to come online in a couple of weeks. It will mean that you can play online without any legal questions and with the backing of a proper regulator, but of course only if you're physically present in New Jersey.

So there is hope for you yet! Only time will tell how long it takes for other states to come on board and either set up reciprocal arrangements or specifically allow their citizens to play at a New Jersey-licensed casino. It is after all the internet, and trying to restrict people's activities based on arbitrary physical borders never works well in the long run.
