Gambling turning into crime - New Jersey proposal comes to the rescue

Almost 70% of people in NJ participated in gambling just this last year, and 6.3% are suffering from uncontrollable gambling addictions. It’s a massive issue, considering that suchlike activities trigger parts of the brain that make it far too exciting for the participants to stop, eventually making gambling a habitual chase. What drives the addiction is usually the first successful win, which sets in a feeling of thrill and prompting a hunger for more. That in itself is a recipe for disaster, and the state of New Jersey suffers greatly, not just from addiction but also from gambling-related crimes.

It’s been almost a year since Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, signed the country’s 2020 Gambling Act into law. Since then, operators that wished to run brick-and-mortar casinos, online casinos, betting shops (in-person and online), slot-machine parlors, and online poker games, got a green light to offer their services within the country as long as they met the necessary requirements.
