New Internet Gambling Laws are Put into Action
Last summer Nevada was given the go- ahead to implement the new Internet gambling laws. However, government officials say that illegal wagering is still going on. To keep track of illegalities happening the Attorney General will provide the State Gaming Commission an analysis of the new gaming laws next month. Until matters are taken care of, the state and the Federal Justice Department will meet to discuss the correlation between online gambling to the 1961 Wire Act that states that gambling over telephone lines is illegal. The Gaming Commission will need to guarantee that minors do not enter gambling sites and that games are played in a safe and reliable environment. ” The Bush Administration has not as yet taken a position on the Wire Act”, sources say. Online gambling market revenues expect to rise to $6 billion by next year.
