The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 does not make it a crime for US citizens to gamble on line; American people are still free of charge to bet anywhere on the Internet, stated Rick Smith and Keith Furlong, that are the Executive and Deputy Directors of the Interactive Gaming Council (IGC), in a press release that week.
The IGC is an leading trade association for the international interactive gambling industry with its own membership supplying or operating companies to a lot of those respectable interactive websites on the Internet.
Their press release continued, saying the charge focuses on the prosecution of banking associations handling transmission of cash from U.S. gamers of on-line gaming sites. Some websites might no longer accept wagers, as many of those publicly traded online gaming organizations announced they would stop carrying American stakes following the past
of the bill from Congress.
However, they worried that the monthly bill will probably cause unintentional adverse effects, indirect opposition for the bill aim.
“At the guise of defending vulnerable Americans- and – minors that desire to bet and also adults that can not restrain their gambling – Congress has really increased the chance to such classes,” said IGC Deputy Director Furlong.
