PricewaterhouseCoopers Study Shows Online Gambling Could Produce $52 Billion in Revenue over Next Decade for U.S.
Posted on 05 March 2009 by "M".
The accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers has shown that the US would be able to benefit a lot from a regulated poker market. Since the UIGEA was introduced in 2006 it has been very hard for US players to play poker online. And since the government are stating that it is illegal to play poker online if you are a US citizen they are missing out on a lot of tax dollars. According to the study made by PricewaterhouseCoopers the US would be able to raise as much as $52 billion in tax over the coming ten years simply by regulating the online gambling market.
The figures showed in this study marks a large increase compared to the same study carried out in 2007. The study made in 2007 showed that the US would be able to make a revenue of $42.8 billion in the next 10 years by regulating and taxing online gambling.
