Figures in the Fight for Legal iGaming in America
Attorney General Eric Holder
US Attorney General Eric Holder’s Christmas gift to the US igaming business back in 2011 remains one of the most head-scratching moments in gambling history.
With almost no warning, the Department of Justice reinterpreted the Federal Wire Act and allowing the states to legalize Internet gambling at their leisure.
But don’t get too excited just yet. Holder’s love/hate relationship with gambling still leans heavy on the hate side. Still, Holder’s impact on igaming in America is undeniable.
