Legal Online Gambling Looks Like a Sure Bet

american conservative magazineIn a recent article by American Conservative titled “Coming Up Aces” state why there will soon be legal online gambling in the USA.

First we have Barney Frank who introduced the Internet Gambling Regulation and Taxation Act to repeal or change the UIGEA and remove the online gambling gray area we are in. A hearing for this act expected in September, but may be delayed.

Second- If Barney Franks act doesn’t make it, we can look to Sen. Robert Menendez’s (D-N.J.) bill, introduced on August 6 that calls for legalizing “games of skill” like internet poker.  Games of chance, casino games like online slots, are not included on Menendezs bill.

Stay tuned for updates on this.  There really is a good chance that one of these bills will pass.
