    I'm not certain the lotteries in the US could be described as 'regulated', except by auditors, legislators, etc.  The fact they're owned by the governments puts them more into a self-regulation status.  That probably also applies when they're 'privatized', such as in Illinois.

    Unless the Native Americans or state governments get into other types of online gambling it doesn't seem likely they'll come to resemble what's going on regulatory-wise with online gambling sites.  Brick and mortar casinos inside the US are regulated to some extent, but it would be difficult to superimpose that level of regulation on anything happening online.
