Wells Fargo officials involved in the study have acknowledged that the projected number could be affected by how quickly the state is able to get online gambling up and running. The state Division of Gaming Enforcement will be delivering and implementing online gambling regulations some time between the end of May and the end of November.
Nevada and Delaware have also legalized Internet gambling.
