NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 06/18/12 -- Casino and gaming companies have been increasing their focus on the online gambling market. The Justice Department on Dec. 23 has said that they would not interfere with states legalizing online gambling sites not including online sports betting. California and Nevada are among the states considering boosting revenues from the legalization and taxing of online gambling.
