Justice Department softens stance on Internet gambling

Posted By on Sat, Dec 24, 2011 at 6:20 AM

Big news here and the fallout should be significant, particularly for gambling halls.

The Justice Department has significantly softened its position on the legality of Internet gambling. It now interprets federal statutes only to prohibit sports betting. This could mean lottery ticket sales on-line, legal on-line poker and more. States can pass laws against on-line offerings, but the opinion, some say, could open the door to multistate combines on various forms of Internet gambling.
