One by one, U.S. states are taking on the issue of whether to legalize—and cash in on—online gambling, a market that by most estimates is worth $4 billion to $6 billion, according to GamblingCompliance, which tracks the global gaming industry.

New Jersey lawmakers will vote on the issue on Feb. 26. If both houses approve, New Jersey will become the nation’s third state to legalize Internet casino games, following Nevada and Delaware.
