The online casino real estate industry is booming, fueled by a rapidly growing appetite for gaming revenue.
But some people are still struggling to find a place to play online.
They’re calling it “the black market,” and it’s taking a toll on local communities.
The Associated Press has been researching the online gambling market since 2014.
We have a team of in-depth reporters who track the industry’s progress, including in-person interviews, social media monitoring, and other research.
We also have data analysis tools to help you make sense of the data.
We’ve collected and analyzed more than 50 million hours of real-time gaming data.
In this story:Why it matters:The online casino industry has grown from just two people in the late 1980s to more than 200 companies now.
Some of the biggest players include major gaming operators like Microsoft, Blackjack, and PokerStars, as well as a growing number of smaller players, including casinos and mobile apps.
But the industry is also growing fast, especially in China, which hosts more than two-thirds of the world’s online gambling and is a major player in virtual currency.
It is expanding to include online poker and virtual currency, as is the Chinese government.
There’s also a growing interest among some in the industry for a kind of regulatory reform, which some fear could lead to online gambling regulations that are far more strict than the federal government’s, or to regulations that would leave gaming businesses in the dark.
How we got here:The story started in 2016 with the launch of the first online gambling app, Gambit, that offered users an online-only casino, and the emergence of online poker.
In early 2017, online gambling became a legitimate business when the government banned online gaming for all Chinese gamblers, and online poker came to be known as the black market.
That led to a wave of online gambling companies that now have hundreds of thousands of employees in more than 100 countries.
The online gambling industry grew to more the hundreds of millions of dollars in revenues from 2018 to 2022, according to the Interactive Data Corporation.
But there is a growing problem.
The online gambling business isn’t just a niche business, with only a few players in China.
In fact, the gaming business is being disrupted by China’s rapid economic growth.
The number of online casinos has grown by more than 80% since 2016, according a new study by the U.S.-based consulting firm, Oxford Economics.
The trend in China is a direct consequence of China’s decision to legalize online gambling in 2019.
The legal industry was in trouble in 2018 because of the lack of online gaming in the country.
The government did not allow online gambling until 2019, but some gambling operators, such as a gaming company in Guangzhou, were allowed to start operating online casinos.
The industry was also threatened by a lack of regulation in China in the early years of the new industry.
In 2018, the government announced a new gaming regulations.
But it did not take long for online gambling to be legalized in the state of Guangdong.
The law required a person to be registered with the state gaming authority, which was not easy to do.
Then in 2019, Gamex, a gambling app from China’s largest online casino operator, came online.
Gamex has since expanded its services and added online slots to its games.
Gamex is the second largest online gaming platform in the world.
It has more than 1 million registered users.
GamEX also operates the China Free Casino, a gaming platform that offers slots, live-action gaming, and mobile gaming.
Gamestop, the largest online gambling provider in the U, was the first to offer slots in 2019 and was later joined by several other online gambling platforms.
But that was not enough for some online casino operators, including Gamestop.
They began to block other sites that offered online gambling.
The decision made it difficult for online casinos to attract new players.
The gaming industry was hit hard by the crackdown.
In 2018, China lost $4.9 billion in revenue.
In 2022, the number of games was down from about $4 billion to about $3.4 billion.
The crackdown on online gambling also hurt local businesses.
Some local gaming operations closed.
And many people lost their jobs as a result of the crackdown, according the research firm Oxford Economics, which has conducted research for several government agencies.
What to do:In 2018 and 2019, the Chinese authorities tried to regulate the online gaming market through the Chinese Gaming Industry Regulatory Commission.
In 2019, they also announced new regulations that will require all online casinos in the Chinese state to comply with Chinese law.
These new regulations are expected to come into effect on Jan. 1, 2021.
But, as with all regulations, there is no way to know how well they will be enforced.
Gamestops are already operating in some of the states with stricter regulations.
Gamers are being asked to report losses in their local gaming accounts and to keep
