If you’re interested in getting started with a gambling business, you’ll want to do your research first. 

Where to Start in Gambling Business?

Find out what type of business you want to start, what skills you have that will be useful, and what resources are available.

In addition, if you’re just getting your feet wet with the business side of things, you should note that the UIGEA makes it illegal for Americans to run a lot of the required background checks for gambling business owners.

As a result, you may have to do some research abroad to find a gambling business that’s right for you.

Places to Start Your Research

  • Local Attorney/Accountant – ask them for recommendations. They’ll be able to point you in the direction of firms that do gaming and/or gambling industry consulting.
  • Online Gambling Forums – if you’re interested in online gambling business, you can find dozens of online gambling forums online. Post in one of these forums and see if anyone in the community can help you find a suitable business opportunity.
  • Google Websites – you can also Google “gambling business” and “website reviewing” to find websites that review different gambling businesses. Visit these websites and post your business plan if you want some outside validation of your idea.
