Online Gambling in 2015
2014 was a great year for US online gambling, with plenty of good new casinos, an unprecedented amount of new online slots, and major forward movement in the mobile casino gaming arena. We’re hoping that 2015 brings much of the same, and as we take a quick look back at the year that was, here we’ll also take a look into the short term future too...with our fingers crossed of course.
Mobile Casino GamingIn 2014 we saw a huge surge in the amount of mobile casinos available to US players, and of course with that came a huge array of 5 reel mobile slots and games. The great online casinos of Liberty Slots Casino , Lincoln Casino and Miami Club Casino all rolled out their mobile platforms, as did many more, and that looks set to be the case for 2015 too. Already earmarked for an early appearance is Slots Capital mobile casino, however with most quality casinos now already offering a mobile solution, in 2015 we expect a massive rise in mobile slots and games, with most US slots development companies launching new slots across all platforms, as well as upgrading the best older slots. On top of that we expect work to be done on navigation and playability, as although most mobile casinos play well on all mobile devices, there’s always room for improvement, and maybe the bigger brands such as Bovada Casino and Slots LV Casino will take the lead on that one.

US Regulated GamingThere was in fact little movement in 2014 concerning US regulated online gambling, and we still stand at 3 states in which it is offered. Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey have not been joined by anyone, and there’s a good chance that this will stay the same in 2015, with of course the chance of California introducing online poker, however there has been the chance of that for the last 5 years! Regulated internet gambling in the US has not reached anywhere near the numbers that were expected of it, with companies such as Ultimate Gaming leaving both Nevada and New Jersey, and Betfair Poker pulling out of New Jersey too, and we can’t see much expansion on 2015. The fact is that credit cards are still causing problems in all 3 states with declines running high and we cannot see banks changing their attitudes toward that. With different banks used for the many offshore US casinos available, this is not a problem for the majority of US slots and casino games players. It may in fact be a case that 2015 sees the regulated market decline further than it has done in the last few months of 2014, and should that be the case, states even considering the regulation of online poker and casino gaming may well think twice.
New Casinos and MoreJust like every year, we’re hoping that 2015 brings a whole bunch of new online casinos for US players to enjoy, with the real big hope that a new software provider appears and delivers even more superb slots, but maybe we have our hopes set a little high! We know there will be plenty of new online slots, and tweaks to existing table games that will bring pleasure to many players, so no matter what happens, here’s to 2015 and all that it brings with it.
