Although online gambling, for some obscure reasons, has gotten a bad rep, the benefits of this newly expanding industry must be taken into consideration if a true analysis of the market is to be made.
With some big online gambling names employing as many as 1500 people the myth that this industry does not necessitate as many workers or skilled workers has been debunked. The fact is that, contrary to popular belief, online casino operators can hire just as many employees as a regular casino has need for.
If New Jersey is to allow online gambling to be legalized the state will see an increase in job availability by 1000 spots. The same goes for the English town of Stroke Tent. Here, an online operator employs up to 2300 personnel for their business to operate proficiently. By comparison, land-based casinos going out of business have seen thousands of people out of a job in recent years.
It stands to reason that the more this market is allowed to run legally the more jobs will be made available for citizens all over the globe. In the USA, if iGambling were to be legalized across the board the result would be an influx of 200,000 new jobs. The legalization of online gambling in California alone would see a profit of $600 million per annum.
Yes, perhaps it is futile for the online industry to employ workers such as dealers, although Live-Dealer positions can be steadily obtained, but, this up and coming industry must hire marketing experts, salespeople, designers, advertising executives, lawyers, customer service reps and so on, thus employing a wider variety of professionals. Besides the obvious benefits of job creation, the overall passing of online bills would lead to serious growth in state profits, and subsequently would help build a stronger economy.
