Will online poker be fully legalized in the United States?
Will online poker be fully legal in the United States? Currently, only Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware in the United States provide fully regulated, legal online poker games; while Texas and New York are highly likely to move closer to this goal. However, members of the US House of Representatives proposed a new bill that created a legal framework that allowed activities including online gambling and poker to provide adults with the freedom of legal entertainment.
The progress of legalizing online poker in the United States is still fast. Only Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware provide fully regulated and legal online poker games. State and New York may be getting closer and closer to this period’s goals, but even so, less than 10% of states in the United States allow legalized online poker. However, a new bill proposed by the US House of Representatives may open the door to the full return of American online poker.
The focus of the revolution in the legalization of poker in the United States is: Is poker a game of chance or a game of skill? The Game Accountability and Modernization Enhancement (GAME) Act introduced this week is crucial. The bill proposed by Frank Pallon (D-New Jersey) has the potential to end the debate about whether poker is a game of chance or technology. The bill creates a legal framework that allows all forms of gaming in the United States , Including online betting and poker.
One of Palon ’s main arguments is difficult to refute because the existence of illegal activities in the United States has caused the country to lose $ 400 billion in sports betting, while billions of dollars have flowed into overseas bookmakers. Sports betting in the United States is currently limited to four states, namely Delaware, Nevada, Montana and Oregon.
Palon used the example of the United Kingdom as evidence: “The situation in the United Kingdom undoubtedly proves that the country’s regulations on gambling and gambling can additionally provide adults with the freedom of legal entertainment, and at the same time bring the gospel for income.”
However, considering that the bill is still in the drafting stage, it is still unknown whether it can be passed.
However, according to Sportsbetting, Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming
Association, said: “President Trump will study sports betting bills at his desk during his term.”
