| MGM Mirage, one of the largest casino entertainment companies in the world, is ready to launch an online casino from the European jurisdiction of the Isle of Man.|
The Isle of Man, located in British Channel Islands, is positioning itself to be the world''s premier online casino licensing jurisdiction. It is now accepting bids from European, African and American casinos who want to set up their online casino operations in a friendly European jurisdiction. So far, there have been 11 applications for online casino licenses.
If MGM Mirage’s bid is successful, it will be the first major United States based casino group to have a presence online. This could represent a major turning point in an industry which has previously been shielded from competition from major land-based casino groups.
