Nevada has always been the gambling state in the U.S. with for example the establishment of legalized gambling. Continuing on that track ”the silver state” recently became the first state in the country to establish regulations to govern online poker operations. Other states could soon follow.
The U.S. Department of Justice recently clarified the scope of the Wire Act concluding that “interstate transmissions of wire communications that do not relate to a ‘sporting event or contest’ fall outside the reach of the Wire Act.”
The Wire Act, is a United States federal law prohibiting the operation of certain types of betting businesses in the United States.
Experts believe this is an opening for the legalization of internet gambling in the near future.
