MGM Mirage Scraps Online Casino

from the bad-bet dept

Looks like the MGM Mirage made a bad bet on what the US political situation would be when it came to online gambling. Realizing that it’s becoming increasingly unlikely that the US would legalize and regulate online gambling, MGM Mirage has shut down their offshore online casino, which they had hoped would be a model of how a regulated, professional, online casino would work. They say they’d be open to re-entering the market – but only if Congress changes its mind.
