PPA backs Wall Street Journal survey on legalised online gambling.

The action group Poker Players Alliance has appealed to online poker players to show their support for legalisation in the United States by voting in a Wall Street Journal poll just up at:

The respected business and financial publication launched the poll, asking the key question: Should Washington Allow Online Gambling in the wake of moves by individual US states toward legalisation, and the launch of the first internet poker site in Nevada by Ultimate Gaming (see previous report).

In 24 hours the poll showed an overwhelming 98% of the 1,690 respondents and counting (at the time went to press) indicating their approval for legalisation.

Poker Players Alliance vice president Rich Muny posted a comment with his vote, noting:

"The unclear, ambiguous Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 forces banks to police the Internet to stop something the act does not even define " unlawful Internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, banks, the Chamber of Commerce, Americans for Tax Reform, the one million member Poker Players Alliance, and many others have spoken out against the negative effects of this law.

"How undefined is online gaming? In late 2011, the DoJ said the Wire Act does not apply to poker and last year, the federal district court in New York ruled that poker is not gambling as defined by the Illegal Gambling Businesses Act.

"Millions of Americans have organized to stand up to this big government action against our liberty. Poker is an honorable game that we are proud to play. I know I don't need big government nanny-staters to use force of government to compel me to behave in a manner they believe is best for me. As Rep. Barton (R-TX), sponsor of last year's HR 2366, the Online Poker Act, says, if you don't want to play poker online for money, you don't have to!

"It's long past time to move forward on player-friendly poker licensing."
