New affiliate site aims to offer a safer gambling environment for US casino players.
Responsible and legal gambling has taken a step forward in the US with the launch of igaming affiliate UScasinos.com.
US online casinos are regulated on a state-by-state basis, leaving some players confused as to what legal options they have when gambling online. With that confusion comes another risk: that of gambling at unregulated sites that don’t adhere to responsible gambling principles. This leaves players at the mercy of these “rogue” operators.
UScasinos.com combats this by offering a platform for players to discover legal, secure and licensed online casinos in the US, ensuring they can game in a regulated and responsible environment.
A team of experienced casino players continually searches out and reviews sites that accept US players, and that team provides detailed and accurate information about any that UScasinos.com recommends. This vetting process includes examining the safety and security, fairness, payment options and game variety that sites offer.
The rapid growth of the US igaming industry, which generated $1.66bn in the first semester of 2021, means there is a strong responsibility to lower gaming addiction behaviours.
Commenting on the phenomenon, Reginald Terry, counsellor at Detroit’s Center for Establishing Recovery, which specialises in gambling addictions, said: “Many sites operate in the US but may be housed in a foreign country, meaning disputes may be settled offshores. Because the user of an unregulated site has little, if any, protection, there is no way to determine if the user’s money is kept in a separate account in the event of bankruptcy. If users are unable to access their money freely, the process of withdrawal can become problematic. Another concern is user verification: unregulated sites may or may not verify users are who they say they are – or even if they are old enough to gamble. It’s difficult enough keeping kids from lifting their parents’ credit cards to purchase loot boxes for video games. Globally, youth are becoming more and more addicted to video games and other internet activities. The last thing we need is an 11-year-old coming in for counselling for problem gambling.”
Ena Mecan, content manager at UScasinos.com, said: “We stay current with any changes regarding laws, regulations and market updates. As a result, our recommended online gambling sites are tested on overall functionality and legal standing, as well as ease of responsible gambling resources and tools.” UScasinos.com operates in states where online gaming is currently legal: New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia and Delaware.
