US Anti Online Gambling Bills to Face Congressional Hearing

Sheldon Adelson’s Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling continues to battle supporters of legalized online gambling who see the potential for tax revenue for each state.

The attempts to ban online gambling at the federal level have been unsuccessful during the 2014 Congressional season; however Chaffetz and Graham are returning in 2015 with their banning bills in tow as they prepare for a hearing on March 5th before the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security.

Poker informational site, Online Poker Report published an article this week that regarding the type of information the hearing should be considering:

“The Original Intent of the Wire Act and Its Implications for State-based Legalization of Internet Gambling”, a short paper by Michelle Minton published by the University of Las Vegas Center For Gaming Research late last year and; “New Jersey Internet Gaming One Year Anniversary – Achievements to Date and Goals for the Future”, a fact-based and objective report on the first year of online gambling legalisation in New Jersey by the regulator, David Rebuck.

There’s been a lot of back and forth on this issue in the US but Americans will just have to wait and see what the year will bring.

    Jesus christ, what the hell is wrong with these politicians in the USA??? Are they just being paid off by the owners of the land based casinos over there in the USA or what?? How can the entire countries representatives be so adamantly against outlawing an activity that is enjoyed by millions of their citizens, it just doesnt make any sense... I really hope you Americans get to enjoy some freedom in this area soon! :(

    I am so tired of this issue. I believe that the US will continue to evolve, not start taking steps in a backward direction. New Jersey is already established online and moving forward. It does not seem likely, no matter how rich and powerful these people are against online gambling because the people in opposition to their goal are equally rich and powerful, but much more numerous than the few of them.

    I would like to see Micro Gaming Casino's Come Back to the U.S.A. .Microgaming Casino's the Games were better you could win. You Didn't have to worry about getting paid all around better casino than Realtime Gaming casino. What I don't understand is why Microgaming had to leave the U.S. But RTG casino's got to stay.I will never make another Deposit in a RTG casino CAUSE IF YOU Do get lucky and get paided it takes 3 to 6 months .

    "I just started using bitcoin myself. I buy bitcoin using my checking account thru Coinbase. It takes a little longer than using a debit/credit card but if I understand it correctly the fees are lower that way. Then I transfer bitcoin to my wallet at Blockchain before depositing at an online casino. I made two deposits at Slotastic! and one at Slotocash and each time the money was there immediately. The only problem I had was on my first deposit I did not account for the conversion difference when making a minimum amount deposit and my bonus did not get triggered automatically. I got it soon worked out though when I contacted support thru Live Chat and explained the mistake was caused by my first time using bitcoin. They credited my account with the bonus and just suggested I add a little more next time to cover the additional fees and conversion rate differences. I didn't do too good at Slotocash but did much better at Slotastic! and even though I made my deposit using bitcoin there was a message on the Withdraw screen saying I had to send in their Credit Card Authorization Agreement before I could make a withdrawal. I contacted Live Support to clarify and they advised I only had to send in a copy of my drivers license and a recent utility bill to verify my identity not my credit card. After I emailed these documents I received an email the next day advising my documents had been received and approved. I then submitted my withdrawal request and expected an immediate response just like I got on my deposit but it didn't happen. That's been about 7 hours ago now so I'm guessing it might be a day or two at least if I'm lucky before anything happens. But if it happens then that'll be much better than having to wait weeks or months like some have to. I'll update later when the withdrawal is finally completed."
