By now you are most likely up to speed on what’s going on in the United States with respect to allowing more online gambling operations. Some have even begun to refer to this seemingly never ending back and forth saga as the War to End All Wars.
As you probably know, on one side of the aisle are those that want to liberalize federal law and actually make online casinos legal throughout the United States, subject to State approvals of course. On the other side of the aisle there is the belligerent billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson. Yes, that same Sheldon Adelson. The Chairman and CEO of one of the largest and most successful land based casinos out in Las Vegas Nevada. The very same Sheldon Adelson who has publicly stood up and vowed to spend any amount necessary to prohibit any further expansion of online gambling operations in the United States. Not only that, Sheldon Adelson wants to disallow existing online casino operations such as the ones found in New Jersey and Delaware.
What’s up with this guy? Can it be a moral issue after all? He was in fact quoted as saying “…would never enter into the business of Internet gambling, no matter how profitable—because it’s a moral issue for me”. Really? Do you suppose that Sheldon Adelson queried his ...

With that in mind, it will come as no surprise to you to learn that the country of Spain is putting out the red carpet. At least for a little while, that is.

During this time period, the country’s gambling regulator, La Direccion General de Ordenacion del Juego (DGOJ) has let on that it wants to bring new operators into the country’s online gambling marketplace.
During this narrow window of opportunity, some pundits that monitor the online gambling industry speculate that Spain could bring in an additional ten to twelve new online casino operators. Also, it is important to note that the DGOJ wants new applicants to understand that the process of evaluating and then issuing new online casino licenses could take as along as six months.
In addition to all of that, the DGOJ also released another tidbit of good news with this latest announcement. In no ...
