    Default Proposed US online poker legislation revealed

    In the United States, a summary of The Internet Gambling Prohibition, Poker Consumer Protection and Strengthening UIGEA Act of 2012 legislation has been released outlining what future federal online gaming regulation could look like.

    The brainchild of Senators Harry Reid and Jon Kyl, the measure, which must be passed by both houses of Congress before being signed into law by the President, would prohibit all forms of unlicensed gambling while creating ‘carve-outs’ for online poker and horseracing off-track betting.

    If and when this bill goes through, I wonder which operators will get the license.

    The thing with this bill is it's not so positive. This would outlaw online casinos and bingo rooms, which are a great segment of our industry. Yes, sure poker is a great thing, but why have just that...

    I hope that other skill games similar to poker (eg. Backgammon) can get sneak with it.

    Otherwise I agree that casino, sports betting and bingo should be legislated because they are a big chunk of the market.

    This is not legislation... It is Protectionism.

    This law and the other so called Regulations were bought and paid for and in some cases the law was even written by the big cooperate land based casinos out of Vegas, New Jersey and the Native Nation Casinos.

    The small minded morons that own the land based casinos are scared to death of online gambling of any kind.. and they are paying millions and millions to politicians to control it or kill it.

    Too bad the majority of Americans will never see all the corruption in their political system when it comes to gambling... Most of the politicos involved are guilty of taking Bribes and much worse...
