US Internet Gambling Lawyer Predicts 2014 Developments

This story was published more than 9 years ago.

A US attorney well known for his representation of internet gambling related cases has published his 2014 predictions for the industry on his website.

Jeff Ifrah, a Washington DC based attorney wrote the blog post about what he feels are likely results in the US gambling market, with a particular emphasis on the online betting sector.

For 2014 Ifrah predicts that:

  • There will be player pool sharing compacts between states that have legalized online gambling such as New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada, leading to better player liquidity, bigger prize pools, and more competitive games.

  • The odds are about even on California entering the online poker market during the coming year, making a major impact as the most populous of the US states and dictating the terms of any sharing compacts with other states.

  • The so far unsuccessful attempt by New Jersey to bypass the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act by legalizing intrastate sports betting will be heard by the US Supreme Court...and it will rule in favor of New Jersey.
