US Still Free to Gamble Online & Bill Side Effects


The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 doesn’t mean it is a crime for people residents to gamble on the web; American players continue to be free to bet anywhere online, stated Rick Smith and Keith Furlong, who respectively are the Executive and Deputy Directors of the Interactive Gaming Council (IGC), in a press release that week.

The IGC is a major trade association for the international interactive gaming industry having its own membership operating or supplying services to the majority of those reputable interactive sites on the Internet.Ufabet

Their media release continued, saying the charge is targeted on the prosecution of banking institutions handling transmission of money in U.S. players of internet gambling sites. So some web sites may not accept wagers, as a lot of those publicly traded online gaming companies announced they’d stop taking American bets following recent passing of their bill by Congress.

Nevertheless, they worried that the bill will probably cause unintentional negative consequences, in direct opposition to the bill’s purpose.

“At the guise of protecting susceptible Americans- and – minors that desire to bet and adults that can’t control their gaming – Congress has actually increased the chance to such groups,” said IGC Deputy Director Furlong.
