As we have been reporting the online scratch card market is seemingly coming to the U.S. in a big way. The dramatic changes in the online scratch card community are set to make it one of the most lucrative forms of online gambling.

Scratch cards already enjoy a sizable portion of the global online gambling market but the opening of the U.S. online market is set to take online scratch cards to heights we could only have dreamed of.

U.S. online scratch card players have been waiting for the chance to play this favorite online winning pastime for way too long. The notion that denies U.S. scratch card players from such a basic right is outrageous.

Reuters reported today that Playtech, the world’s largest software provider announced that it has already started talks with key U.S. parties in anticipation of the online gambling market opening up in the U.S.

As we have been reporting the US Justice Department’s new stance on the Wire Act of 1961 has cleared the way for internet gambling such as casino and poker games by declaring that the ban in the Act only applies to sports betting.

Playtech CEO, Mor Weizer stated that they have been approached by many interested parties who would like Playtech to supply them with their online gaming products when the U.S. market opens up.

Weizer pointed out that there are many things going on behind the scenes in many states and local authorities. Weizer pointed out that Playtech has representatives on the ground to closely monitor all potential developments.

Playtech has been one of the first online gaming powerhouses to recognize the lucrative potential with the US gambling market opening up.

U.S. legislation in 2005 basically made online gambling illegal but Mor stated that it was not certain if these laws would be overturned.

These statements need to be taken into context with Playtech’s recent acquisitions in Germany of Merkur , South Africa with Peermont and Geneity.

Taking all of these factors into account it is clear to all that Playtech is confident that the current legal status of online gambling in the U.S. is set to change.

Finally it seems that online scratch cards are coming to all who share this favorite classic unbeatable winning format.
