Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Developed by Gambling.com Group Plc, SlotSource.com provides comprehensive reviews of more than 150 online slots. In the growing market for regulated iGaming in the United States, players need resources to help them locate online casinos that have their favorite online slots as well as advice on which online casinos are fair, reputable, legal and licensed in their state.

Online casino players in the United States have a rapidly expanding array of games, slots and casinos now available at their disposal. SlotSource.com organizes the United States’ total online casino offering into one easy to use website where games and casinos are broken down by their availability per state. The website cooperates exclusively with online gaming companies licensed in the United States.

“As states like Pennsylvania and New Jersey see record growth in online casino revenue, new players need resources like SlotSource.com to navigate the growing universe of games and options and stay on the right side of the divide between regulated and offshore providers,” said Charles Gillespie, Chief Executive of Gambling.com Group.

Slots are the most popular casino game both at brick-and-mortar casinos and online. But it is online slots in particular that are experiencing tremendous growth. For May 2020, online slots handle in Pennsylvania surpassed the $1 billion mark for the first time ever thanks to a month-on-month increase of 40%. This milestone is particularly significant considering the rapid growth witnessed in April, where online slots handle hit more than $757 million, up 96% from March 2020. Online slots have generated more than $83 million in local and state tax revenue for Pennsylvania since launching in July 2019, according to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

Currently, online casino play is regulated and available for players in Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Michigan has also regulated the market and is expected to go live later in 2020 or in early 2021. More states are expected to consider online casino expansion as a way to maintain gaming related tax revenue during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to real-money slot reviews, fully-featured free-to-play slots and bonus comparisons, SlotSource.com offers resources to help players safely manage deposits and withdrawals from the most trusted payment providers in the business including PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, Play+ and more.

In Illinois, anyone who makes over $600 in sports bets will now need to report their winnings to the state. These earnings will be taxed at 15%. Nicholas Royer, a financial advisor of MRFC, said sports betting is a business for some people and the state saw it as an opportunity to earn from it as well.

The deputy secretary of prizes and draws at the Brazilian Ministry of Economy’s Secretariat of Evaluation, Planning, Energy and Lottery (Secap-ME) has given some hope that sports betting regulation could arrive this year. According to Waldir Eustáquio Marques Jr, regulation of the sector could be forthcoming in July.

Appointment

Bragg Gaming Group has appointed Canadian publishing magnate and former Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp Chair Paul Godfrey to its Board of Directors. Godfrey’s experience in the Canadian gaming industry will prove valuable as the Canadian government moves forward with their recently announced proposed federal legalisation of single-event sports betting.

Compliance

A bill that would legalise sports betting in Georgia has been introduced to the state’s House of Representatives. House Bill 86, also known as the Georgia Lottery Mobile Sports Wagering Integrity Act, would amend Chapter 27 of Title 50 of the Official Code of Georgia by adding a section on sports betting.

Lawmakers in New Mexico have filed a bill that would bring retail and online sportsbooks to its racetracks. House Bill 101 would convert the state’s racinos into fully functioning casinos, but without electronic and online table games. At present, New Mexico has five racetracks, all of which have casinos attached but with a limited selection of slot machines and video games.
