US Still Free to Gamble Online & Bill Side Effects


The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 does not mean it is a crime for US residents to gamble online; American players continue to be free to gamble anywhere online, stated Rick Smith and Keith Furlong, who respectively are the Executive and Deputy Directors of the Interactive Gaming Council (IGC), in a press release this past week.

Their press release continued, saying the charge focuses on the prosecution of financial institutions handling transmission of money in U.S. players to operators of online gambling websites. So some websites may not accept wagers, as many of these publicly traded online gambling organizations announced they would quit taking American stakes after recent passage of this bill from Congress.

Nevertheless, they worried that the bill will cause unintentional adverse effects, in direct opposition to this bill’s intent.

“In the guise of protecting susceptible Americans- and – minors that would like to gamble and adults who can’t control their gambling – Congress has actually increased the chance to these groups,” said IGC Deputy Director Furlong.
