Who’s Who in the Fight for iGaming
The Poker Players Alliance (PPA) has been absolutely instrumental in convincing the Department of Justice that poker is a game of skill, and not a game of chance.
That subtle distinction shifted the entire conversation about Internet gambling in America and ultimately paved the way for limited legalization.
As the Chairman of the PPA, former US Senator Alfonse D’Amato employed his vast experience as a lawmaker to help bring the Feds into the fold.
D’Amato’s leadership at the PPA doesn’t get all that much press, but he’s definitely been a force in helping turn the story of igaming in America from Black Friday to the Christmas Gift.
