Abstract

Legal casino-style gambling has expanded dramatically in the United States during the 1990s. Casino Gambling's Proliferation Throughout the U.S.: A Case Study of Legal Gaming in Louisiana examines the causes for this sudden growth and the effects that introducing casino gambling has had on one state in particular, Louisiana. The paper will take you through a brief history of gambling from its earliest roots to its present place in our society. It will also provide a glimpse into what is in store for the gaming industry in the future.
