Rolling The Dice To Legalize Online Gambling In The US

from the might-take-a-while dept

Even though plenty of online gambling customers are Americans, they’re mostly breaking the law. The Department of Justice has been really cracking down on online gambling lately, even to the point that they accuse sites who advertise online gambling operations of breaking the law. However, some online gambling operations are pushing hard to convince Congress a better solution is to legalize and regulate online gambling. Of course, this lobbying effort has been going on for quite some time and so far hasn’t been successful at all. In fact, so far, Congress and the DOJ have moved even further against online gambling. Meanwhile, here in California, we’re looking to offline gambling to solve all of the state’s financial problems. Seems to send a bit of a mixed message, doesn’t it?
