Such is the positive effect of these bills online giants 888.com are preparing to launch their business to the American market.
888 have joined forces with Avenue Capital Investment Group and the pair have set up a joint partnership called The All American Network, and everything is in place and ready for when more bills are passed and given the go ahead in the American states.
A spokesperson for 888.com had the following to say when asked about the new venture. They said, “The company will be able to move rapidly into the huge consumer gambling market when it is given the green light.”
