US States Views on Online Gambling May 5, 2012
Although many states in the US are strongly advocating legal action to ban online casinos, there are many others who are actually taking concrete measures to legalize and even regulate online gambling. There are states like New Jersey which have expressed the desire to make online poker legal. This, of course, is to be implemented only for a casino which is connected with the Atlantic City which is again the state’s largest land-based gambling hub. There are states like Delaware and Massachusetts which are hopeful of making online gambling lawful in the future as is Nevada which has for long been taking steps to legalize online poker. This is expected to set the trend of legalizing poker among other online casinos operating in the US. In this context, Barney who has been a strong advocate of this move is doubtful about the game’s legalization on a federal level. He expects the local development to take place over the next couple of years, though he is confident that federal legalization is not going to be implemented anytime soon. He has voiced his concern regarding Senator Jon Kyl’s advocacy of disallowing legalization of online gambling. He feels that nothing constructive is likely to come out of this initiative till the time Kyl is in office. Both in Delaware and Massachusetts, many meetings have been organized bringing together gambling boards and state officials together. At Delaware, Tom Cook who is State Financial Director has held meetings with the Video Lottery Council here to explain the benefits of legalizing online gambling. Similarly, the Gaming Commission in Massachusetts has convened several times to deliberate on the issues of tribal casinos and online gaming.
