Online gambling may be legalized in the Northern Mariana Islands

The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) is considering the possibility of legalizing online gambling. The operations of the corporation Imperial Pacific International, which manages the casino, have resulted in losses amounting to hundreds of millions, and iGaming could provide a way out of the situation.

The draft legislation aims to launch gambling websites and applications under licensing. It covers not only online games but also sports and esports betting.

An essential point is the integration of blockchain technology into all financial transactions related to gambling.

The bill is currently in the discussion stage.
