Though a new Congressional bill proposes to legalize and regulate online gambling across the U.S., online gambling proponents remain skeptical the bill will end the industry's legal battle. Casinos, tribes, state lotteries, and other interest groups are still fighting for special rights, ideological opposition remains, and the bill features an opt-out provision for individual states and tribes. On the other hand, public support for legalization has been growing, and Nevada and New Jersey's moves have led other states to worry about being left out.  ZNGA and GLUU are both waiting for the chance to expand their online gambling efforts from the U.K. to the U.S. (I, II).

    Legalized gambling has a long way to go and ZNGA trying to get in as a gaming leader has even more headwinds. ZNGA should stick to what it did best, make FB kids games and hope they'll spend their parents $$$ on their worthless time consuming adventures. Right now ZNGA is about $2.50 overpriced.
