Online Gambling And Poker Regulations
Online casinos have always been in the news for regulations, and the District of Columbia has taken some serious steps in this direction. The DC has announced some new laws related to online gambling. The new law that will come in to action will give D C Lottery the ability to administer “games of skill and games of chance”.
This law, when implemented, will become a part of the lottery program and would generate additional resources for the District of Columbia. Such regulations are also proposed in Nevada, Florida, and Hawaii. In fact, a bill has been approved by a legislative panel and it will allow “the Nevada Gaming Commission to begin drafting rules to regulate online poker.”
However, the bills in Florida and Hawaii could not see the light of day. This means that traditional poker games are still illegal.
Here is some more news about the world of online casinos.
