Online Gambling Five Years After UIGEA

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

A new white paper entitled “ Online Gambling Five Years After UIGEA ” released by the American Gaming Association (AGA) calls for effective regulation of online poker in the U.S.

The paper authored by David O. Stewart , counsel at Ropes & Gray LLP in Washington, D.C. provides an in-depth look at the global and U.S. online gambling markets, current regulatory models and legalization proposals in the United States. An appendix covers U.S. enforcement efforts against online gambling operators.

“Americans like to gamble online. Millions of Americans bet billions of dollars a year at offshore foreign websites and have demonstrated that they will do so even if their government tells them not to, said Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr ., President and CEO of the AGA.

“This report illustrates that the U.S. can and should establish a safe and regulated online poker experience.”
