legalized, gambling, casino


This article seeks to demonstrate that the spread of legalized gambling is inevitable as states recognize the immense revenue generating capabilities of casinos. However, in order to realize these revenues and take advantage of them, without incurring the potential negative social side affects, states must control and regulate casinos. Thus, this article examines, through their theoretical structure and practical realities, the four different methods for legalized casino gambling regulation: (1) Nevada's free enterprise model; (2) New Jersey's and Puerto Rico's tourist area revitalization model; (3) England's strict social control model; and (4) the model of complete or partial state ownership.
