Some state and provincial lotteries also allow consumers to purchase lottery tickets online, usually through a subscription service. Most jurisdictions allow online wagering for horse races. In Canada, online casinos and poker rooms are primarily operated by state-run lottery organizations. The Kahnawake First Nation in Canada licenses online casino gaming, poker, sports betting, skill gaming and betting exchanges for sites all over the world. In the U.S., online poker is legal and regulated in six U.S. states (Delaware, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia). The Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA) went into effect on 25 February 2014. This agreement allows online poker operators to combine player pools across state lines between the member states. Delaware and Nevada were the first two states to enter into MSIGA. New Jersey joined the agreement on 27 September 2017, while it took a while before its next member when Michigan joined on 23 May 2022. West Virginia joined the MSIGA on 14 November 2023. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Connecticut, Delaware and Michigan offer legalized and regulated online casinos. Casino City considers pari-mutuel wagers placed via the internet on race and sports activities in North America to be race and sports wagering activities.
