Online Gaming in North America

While the United States and Canada both allow online gaming to be licensed and regulated at the state or provincial level, only a handful of jurisdictions have done so. Some state and provincial lotteries also allow consumers to purchase lottery tickets online, usually through a subscription service. Most jurisdictions allow online wagering for horse races. In Canada, online casinos and poker rooms are primarily operated by state-run lottery organizations. The Kahnawake First Nation in Canada licenses online casino gaming, poker, sports betting, skill gaming and betting exchanges for sites all over the world. In the U.S., online poker is legal and regulated in six U.S. states (Delaware, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia). Players in New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware can compete against each other thanks to a multi-state poker alliance. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Michigan offer legalized and regulated online casinos.

Casino City considers pari-mutuel wagers placed via the internet on race and sports activities in North America to be race and sports wagering activities. It also considers lottery purchases placed via state and provincial lottery websites to be a lottery activity.
