The State of Delaware and its Gaming division are hoping to see its internet gambling initiatives go live by September of this year. They also hope to have interstate gambling going live with other states like Nevada who also adopted recent laws to legalize online poker.
It was Vernon Kirk, the Director of state lottery in Delaware who made the announcement regarding internet betting. It was Delaware who became the first state to take the position of legalizing online betting in order to generate additional revenue. They had the foresight of understanding that this is something that would not go away and that it was better to have regulations in place and capitalize on internet betting versus miss the obvious opportunities it presents to the state’s coffers.
This was a proactive move to avoid the risk of dealing with other states in a competitive nature and the loss of that revenue. It also was seen as a positive move for its residence and will allow them the appropriate choices when it relates to gambling.
The internet giant Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars both just settled a lawsuit with Kentucky, a state in the United States of America. The two Online Poker Providers had to reward Kentucky with six million dollars for the lawsuit.
This case is now seven years old and the lawsuit started way back when Kentucky lawyers tried to take the domains of PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. This case caused Kentucky a lot of trouble and bad press because the state had no legal ground what so ever to do this. Kentucky tried to argue that these two professional Poker Rooms were doing illegal business but this just wasn’t the case. In the end Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars lost.
The state of Kentucky has now joined the federal government in another set of several lawsuits. These lawsuits will most likely be in favor for the poker rooms. USA Citizens love to gamble and even if the government says you can’t do something you still will. In the long run the USA will lose against online gambling, you could never stop something as big as online gambling.
The Governor of Kentucky went on to say that he will use the lawsuit money in order to help the citizens of Kentucky on a rainy day.
