Despite an obvious interest from both punters and developers, online gambling remains a touchy legal issue in the U.S. Yet American online roulette players needn’t lose hope – members of the eGaming industry certainly haven’t. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that U.S. Digital gaming, a new venture backed by the heads of numerous roulette casinos, is posturing itself to establish a foothold in the American online gambling market that many feel is inevitable.
Founded in 2009 by former casino executive Richard Bronson, U.S. Digital Gaming is attempting to establish itself as a sort of one-stop shop for online gambling companies – offering services that range from software development and guidance to marketing and advertising. It’s a bold gamble on their part, but Bronson remains confident that legalization for online gaming is just around the corner.
"We want to be in position to be able to move forward quickly," he told the Journal. "There’s no doubt in my mind that this is upon us."
Though the company is currently without a revenue stream, it has raised more than $3 million from outside investors in addition to the $3 million Bronson and his partners are putting up.
