The Future of Online Gambling in the US

There will undoubtedly be a percentage of US players who will not be stopped by the ban on online gambling no matter what, but there could be a much larger percentage of players who could or would like to continue playing online. Despite the fact that that online gambling itself, in most cases, does not constitute a criminal act, nevertheless, I do not believe that the vast majority of players fully understand this and the prospect of becoming a “criminal” in order to gamble online is not an option for many, at this point in time. Those who do decide, to hell with Frist’s law, will need to overcome a number of obstacles before they can place a wager online. Firstly, since the IT savvy will realize, that their geographical location can be loosely determined by IP address, they can fool the tracking systems by using numerous anonymizing applications freely available on the market. However, by accessing the online casino by using this method will in all likelihood trigger casino operators anti fraud systems unless the player consistently connects via the same proxy or the casino operator agrees and understands that the player is hiding his/her geographic footprint.I believe that no online casino operator with a brain in their head, who is located outside the US will simply discard the potential of billions of dollars in earnings without making an attempt to reap in some of the rewards, even be it, in a disguised manner in order to cover their backs. Which brings me to the second obstacle, that the online gambler will need to overcome.
Online gambling Banking Methods. With Netteller being in the middle of this mess, the biggest and the most obvious target and having therefore having to withdraw their banking services from online gambling, for their own good. It would be advisable for players to move online gambling banking to Click2Pay and PaySpark who would seem to be incapable of, or possibly disinterested in, implementing the costly requirements of the US gambling laws. I have no doubt that with Netteller being oblidged to leave a huge pile of cash on the table, we will be seeing one or two new institutions taking up the slack in the market.The third and biggest problem the determined US online gambler faces is his/her home address. Unless there is a friend, family member, acquaintance or business connection outside the US then, this is going to be the obstacle that trips up the wannabe US gambler. What is probably going to happen in this case is, and I know it sounds far fetched, rogue and probably a can of worms (but maybe not). Something like address-abroad.com. A facilitator and supplier of an address outside the US. Possibly a company owned by the “clean” casino who simply connects the actual address details to the alias avoiding the heat from the US government.Many before The Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA) was passed, had no inclination whatsoever to find a solution to circumvent any laws, but since Mr. Frist and his cronies seem bent on the creation of felons, this is merely a natural progression in thinking for a vast number of previously law abiding citizens and only a minute example of things to come.
It is a sad day when people create laws to create crime, which the vast majority of law abiding citizens do NOT believe should be constituted as a crime. Thus a new watered down way of thinking about crime is born, that only the eventual abandonment of such a law can remedy. (on this point we may have to wait a while though)
It is just a matter of time before a couple of enterprising minds to mull this thing over or recognize this crime/opportunity paradigm for what it is, and in the not too distant future, we will looking at a 200% increase in the internet gambling industry from where it is now,.
I leave with the words of H.S Thompson.“In a closed society where everybody’s guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.”

I know this was posted a wee while back - I only just found it now - I am not sure what has happened since - but I do know how the bloody bible belt here in the USA looks upon gambling and let me tell you it is a laugh - here in AL the general Lotto has been voted down twice - all the domanees and the like get their tits in a tangle when the mention of gambling comes about and I hear this at nauseam _ you are encouraging people to gamble - even without casino's and the like they have horse racing and dog racing and bloody bingo for F@@k sake -but go on and on in sermon form about how bad casino's are and general lotto's.

What gambling and lotto's have done for surrounding States that I know of is provided a hell of a lot of funding for their states schools - enabling each student in one state at every school to have their own computer as opposed to sharing computers. And things like that. That is just one example of funding and tax payers who are already stretched having to fit the bill.

Besides Alabamians flock to Georgia, Tennessee and Florida and Mississippi to take part in either their lotto's or casino's - its such a laugh - In Mississippi it is illegal to have a casino - there are 3 major casino attractions there - Tunica, Philadelphia and Biloxi and how these casino's get around this legality is - in order to have a casino it has to be surrounded by water - so all the casino's in Mississippi have a man made water pool/pond what ever you want to call it around each and every casino hahahahahahaha

Now if that aint splitting hairs I don't know what is - so there you go just what you were saying - this too will happen with online gambling if it hasn't already - I don't gamble that much although personally I love poker - I play online just not in the real stakes.

Back to my soap box...
I am just so sick and tired of religious people telling others what to do that I could puke! and YES I do believe in GOD and I also know that if GOD can give us a choice - then who the hell are you to tell me what to do???

Sorry Cosmic whew went off pop there for a bit but this just pisses me off.

With regards the the US and the bill they passed - they are going to lose a shit load of money if they haven't already and its going to go out the country. With minds like that, that are so closed they deserve to lose it.
