NEW YORK TIMES REPORTS ON INTERNET GAMBLING
15th August, 2011 at 03:50:44
Not much new in general overview of the American situation
Several publications have lifted an article that appeared over the weekend in the New York Times, examining the internet gambling situation and legalisation attempts in the United States.
Written by the knowledgeable and experienced Matt Richtel, the lengthy piece contains no really fresh revelations and is an overview of recent legalisation initiatives at state level.
It concludes that the failure to legalise at federal level, along with a need for new revenue streams, has triggered initiatives by individual states which have, with the qualified exception of Washington DC (see previous reports), failed to materialise into new law.
"Efforts underway at about a dozen states to legalize online poker, blackjack and other games of chance are being fought tooth and nail by Senators Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Jon Kyl (R-Az.,) who have asked the Justice Dept. to step in," the article notes.
