Wow, I am really happy that I do not live in Utah.
What a shame.
Just ridiculous. Pretty soon there will probably be a fine for breathing.
I believe their religion matters and it's a big deal..
I agree that religion is an important institution, but to me it seems like the Mormon influence has taken a very strong foothold in the politics of Utah.
Under what I understand to be the ideals of the United States, we should have a separation of church and state, and to me it just seems like there is too much collusion in cases like this. It really makes me wish that we could undertake laws that just make sense and stay out of other people's business.
If I lived in Utah and gambled online in the sanctity of my own home, why does the state care about it? What business is it of theirs, especially if I legally declare my winnings on my income taxes. Moves like this law just drive gambling underground and not protect anyone.
A shame if you ask me.
I agree slim. There are too many laws for too many things. It seems like most laws are made to punish someone and also at the same time make money for the corporations. What ever happened to if no one is harmed then no crime has been committed?
Sad but not unexpected given Utah's unique circumstances. It looks more and more likely that individual state-by-state legislation is the way the U.S. is going to go with online gambling. It will certainly make our job more difficult if they all start launching their own state-based monopoly card rooms and/or casinos.
Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

Maybe is more legit o be a whore in Utah then an online gambler. Did i read "... its seems like a Mormom influence..." or "its seems like a Moron influence..."???
Noctipaulo, Utah is heavily populated by members of the Mormon faith. The state has a very firm stance on a lot of "immoral" acts within its borders. That is just the way it is there; like it or not.
While I think that the state's legislature should not take any religion into account when making laws, I certainly would not go about mocking their faith. I certainly hope that is not the stance you are taking in regards to the passing of this law.
I think that while we may disagree with the stance taken by Utah's government, we need to be cautious not to mock anyone's faith. After all, there could very well be Mormon visitors to this site who love to gamble just as much as us! 🙂
barbadosslim93, to be honest i don't like to gamble. I like to win money in a few slot clicks. If that is "immoral", so every business in the world must be considered immoral to the mormoms. That's the way i look into to the gambling issue...well, just my opinion.
