Gambling has made a lot of progress in the last decade, especially with the addition of regulated legal online gambling in a few states. Online Poker is now 100% legal in Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware. Personally, I love playing games with a bit of strategy and calculated odds (like DDB video poker) and playing poker where I have a good chance of winning money from some other players. The point is I love the casinos and the chance of winning a big jackpot.
Online gambling in the USA has been a hot topic in 2015, with Nevada and New Jersey becoming the pioneers of running a regulated legal online gambling industry at the state level. Currently there are no federal laws for or against online gambling, as it is know up to each individual state. In the next year or so we are hoping to see interstate poker games, as of right now each state can only play against other players in that same state.
