It appears that we may just be about to witness a surge in online gambling legislation around the United States of America. Through the early days of growth in the online gambling market, the United States seemed to have missed what was an opportunity for economic growth in a new segment, as demonstrated by a conservative president reacting in 2006 with a very weak act in an attempt to block access to online gambling websites.
Glacial. This is perhaps the best way to describe the progress towards regularising online gambling within the United States. Since the passage of UIGEA back in 2006 the online gaming market in this country has been forced underground, drawing some similarities with the Volstead Act and prohibition. Over the years we have seen and heard many commentators and law makers indications that things will change in this area, but so far to no avail.
The shift towards legalisation of online poker in the United States is fascinating to watch, albeit somewhat glacial at times. There are many ups and downs in this process of bringing online poker to individual states.
