I saw an interesting article in the Las Vegas Review Journal a couple days ago about Internet gambling. The article said that a House of Representatives resolution was introduced in May that would “establish a framework to permit licensed online gambling operators to accept wagers from inside the United States.”
According to the article, Nevada has the “statutory structure” in place to investigate and license online gambling companies.
My questions —
- How would this effect existing online casinos?
- Would congress actually allow this to happen?
- Would this reduce visits to Las Vegas?
[8/26/09: Just learned that Time.com took down the video because of \”some sensitivity with various issues\”. There is a very interesting article on the Las Vegas Sun website about the fallout from the Time’s article — specifically, the Realtor quoted in the piece is in hot water.]
