    Default PokerStars hires former Gaming Control Board member as consultant

    Randall Sayre, a former member of the Nevada Gaming Control Board for four years, was recently hired by PokerStars as a consultant. Back in 2009 Sayre was named "Gaming Regulator of the Year" by the International Masters of Gaming Law.

    Sayre says the legalization of online gambling in the United States is inevitable.

    From the Casino City Times:

    "We can stand on the beach and let it wash over us, or we can recognize the potential economic opportunity for the state," he said.

    As long as the regulation will make an advancement to online gambling, why not impose it? As with the newly hired consultant, they are to give their best with regards to this issue.
    "The company, along with MGM Resorts International, favors federal Internet gaming legalization, rather than a state-by-state approach."
    However, this will take a long time to be consent since it is talking about the federal government. For sure lots of things will be taken into consideration before they comply with this issue.

    Of course the regulation will surely make an advancement to online gambling, that's why they're fighting for it. I guess it would be more appropriate to say, as long as the regulation can do something good to the state (or a group of states) where it [regulation] will be effective, why not approve it? PokerStars did a wise move to have Sayre on their board.

    This is great news to hear! As for me, Pokerstars have better staff among other poker sites. This reminds me of Bryan Taylor who works in detecting poker bots at PokerStars.
