Casino City's Global Gaming Almanac - 2019 Edition

World Casino City’s Global Gaming Almanac 11 Overview of Gaming Worldwide Overview As you survey the world, you will find forms of legal gambling almost everywhere. Legalized gambling has become the norm over the past 25 years as more and more jurisdictions have tapped the tremendous revenue source provided by the taxation and regulation of gambling. Currently, many governments are increasing their efforts to either expand legal gambling or further regulate existing gambling. In the few places left where gambling is still illegal for religious or ideological reasons, there are proponents making a strong case for its introduction. As the tide has turned, the holdouts have seen residents travel from their countries and states to gamble in neighboring jurisdictions, bringing their money and potential tax revenue with them. Today, over 180 countries participate in some kind of legal gambling. With the proliferation of online gambling, plus the still significant amount of illegal gambling around the world, we can safely say that most people will find an outlet for their gambling needs.
