10 Most Influential Online Gambling Events

1. Black Friday
When online poker players talk about a day that will live in infamy, they’re not talking about December 7, 1941, they’re talking about April 15, 2011.
That’s when the Department of Justice lowered the boom on three of the most popular online poker sites on the planet and, for all intents and purposes, shut down the online poker industry in the United States.
Black Friday fallout ruined careers, wrecked finances and sent a few folks to prison (with more yet to come).
In short, no single iGaming event comes close to matching Black Friday.
