Default Online gambling will be more legal in the US

vs less legal, see it is not illegal as long as the youbets, phonebets et al can set up shop and offer online betting-

anway it will be legal as soon as the US based casino giants run out of land based places to racketeer, have Macau and the UK,

after that there is nothing on the horizon, the US as a whole as swung against most forms of gambling, so once PA puts in the slot casinos, I expect domestic growth to cease with the exception of the management contracts with the indians-

leaving nowhere left to expand except online.

unlike the online shops, the Harrahs of the world are well versed in greasing the right palms-just note REP Berkelely's impassioned pleas before that House hearing.

just one man's opinions.

In 1998 the Department of Justice brought charges under the Wire Act against 22 American citizens involved in managing foreign-based sites. "You canít hide online," Janet Reno, the attorney-general, warned Internet betting operators, "and you canít hide offshore."
