A new report has claimed that the US could stand to net $22 billion (£14 billion) should authorities decide to lift laws regarding online gambling.

Research collected by H2 has concluded that legalising the pastime could result in benefits to economic growth in addition to creating jobs for US citizens. Furthermore, the report estimated that $42 billion could be gained nationwide by 2015 (with sports betting included).

According to H2 report director Simon Holliday, the findings of the report should be enough to convince US government officials to consider legalisation.

“This study should provide further incentive for the Obama Administration and Congress to act quickly to regulate internet gambling. Furthermore, the current situation where United States players use offshore sites causes billions of dollars to leak out of the economy each year and leaves tens of thousands of players without any onshore regulatory protection,” he said.

Easing the laws around online gambling could result in a greater uptake for casino games. This means that titles such as Kitty Glitter may receive greater exposure. Perhaps US gamblers will be attracted to the game’s slick, chic attitude?

Another game which may pique the attention of US gamers is Super Hoot Loot. This online slots title is based in the woods and so features all manner of animals. For example, there are jolly foxes and clever owls, helping you on your way to picking up a top prize. As is to be expected with online casino games, a whole host of bonus features have also been included, maximising players’ chances to win.
