United States: Toward a bill to liberalize online poker

After France, it's time for the U.S.A to clean up gradually liberalizing poker. In fact, in this country, online poker existed since many years but the websites were operating illegally which led to its prohibition in 2006, enacted by a federal law called the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA). Despite this law, which prohibits online poker, it nevertheless allows some states to legalize online poker intrastate. One idea that has taken its way since for these states banded together to propose a bill that could be likened to what happened in France. The strongest supporters of this game grouped in Poker Players Alliance are on the frontlines to pressure the government to alter the law. In short, a lobbying work is done.

With 1.2 million members at present, it is likely that this number will increase. To further this bill draft, its advocates have launched an initiative called Poker Money Bomb on July 1st, which is to raise money to pay lawyers to advance liberalization. Among the members of this group of shock, there are celebrities like Alfonse D'Amato, Chris Ferguson, Howard Lederer, Greg Raymer. $ 25,000 were collected during the first day. The road is still long, but some elected members already provide support for the adoption of this text. Note that three states: California, New Jersey, Florida has already filed a bill to legalize poker intrastate.
