Will Online Gambling Become Legal in 2012? And Other Predictions
The US Will Regulate Online Poker
It seems very likely that the US House of Representatives is a few steps behind approving a bill that will regulate and legalize online gambling. We predict that online poker will be the first segment of the industry to enjoy the legalizing light that the US Federal Government will shine upon it, and hopefully upon all of us soon enough.
Online poker has an advantage to online casinos in the fact that it has been defined to be a game of skill and not just chance. This has given it many extra points in the road to legalization and bills concerned with online poker are taken more seriously than those about online gambling in general. Hopefully, once online poker is regulated they will pave the road for the rest of us to get there.
