  1. [caption width="640"] Jeff Sessions might be bad news for regulated online gaming in the United States.[/caption] In the confirmation hearing this week regarding Sen. Jeff Sessions’ appointment as Attorney General, a brief exchange between Sessions and Sen. Lindsey Graham piqued the interest of the online poker world. Early in the eight-hour confirmation hearing, Graham asked Sessions for his thoughts on the Department of Justice’s 2011 interpretation of the Wire Act, which allows states to license and regulate online poker, lotteries, and other casino games on the Internet. In 201
  2. [caption width="640"] All observers continue to be focused on the Pennsylvania Senate as the Keystone State crawls towards regulating iGaming[/caption] If you’re among the people waiting for another state to legalize online poker your eyes were squarely focused on Pennsylvania in October. Unfortunately, the month came to a close without a definitive answer as to when online gambling will be legalized by the Pennsylvania legislature. Here's a look back at the rapidly evolving legislative landscape in Pennsylvania, and a look ahead to two other states that are expected to resume online ga
  3. [caption width="641"] Michigan could be welcoming online poker back sooner rather than later.[/caption] Since State Senator Mike Kowall introduced an online gaming bill in April, Michigan has emerged as one of the most likely candidates to join Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey as states with legal online poker. That being said, Michigan's nascency on this issue caught many of analysts and pundits off guard, which has created a cloud of uncertainty, and left them trying to gauge whether Michigan is a legitimate contender or if the whole thing is smoke and mirrors. Here's what we kn
  4. [caption width="640"] California Assemblyman Adam Gray's online poker bill is on its way to the Assembly[/caption] It's probably a little too early to get super excited just yet, but Wednesday afternoon saw a California legislative committee pass a bill that would regulate online poker in the Golden State with some suggesting the law could pass in 2016. The Assembly Governmental Organization Committee passed the bill unanimously on Wednesday. The bill - AB 2863 - came with two important caveats that could signal progress as the state deals with multiple stakeholders all looking for thei
  5. [caption width="640"] California could become the next state to regulate online poker if Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer can get his bill advanced.[/caption] California online poker players have been down this road before. Over the last decade, the state has debated the merits of legalizing online poker, but each year efforts have come up short leaving players out in the cold. In 2017, it appears legislators are once again ready to give legalizing online poker a shot after California Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer introduced the Internet Poker Consumer Protection Act late last week.
  6. [caption width="640"] PokerStarsNJ is back on U.S. soil for the first time since 2011.[/caption] Monday, March 21 will go down as one of the brightest early days in the history of regulated poker in the United States. Sure, the markets are few and far between and this new world of online poker is in its infancy, but when PokerStars, after nearly a five-year hiatus from dealing real money poker in the United States, made its return, people got excited. The day, which PocketFives covered live, featured a number of important firsts. First tournament win. First time over 500 seated players
  7. [caption width="640"] West Virginia lawmakers have taken the first step towards legalizing online poker - but don't expect them to take the second any time soon.[/caption] West Virginia is the seventh state to introduce online gaming legislation in 2017, but with the legislative session winding down – it ends in just two weeks – the proposal from Del. Shawn Fluharty isn’t expected to garner enough support in 2017. Instead, it should be seen as a conversation starter for online gaming in the state moving forward. Fluharty, a Democrat, recently introduced House Bill 3067, a bill that
  8. West Virginia is one Governor’s signature away from becoming the fifth state to legalize online gambling in the U.S. The West Virginia Senate passed measure HB 2934 by a 26-7 vote Friday. The measure, officially known as the West Virginia Lottery Interactive Wagering Act, would legalize online gambling - including online poker - within state borders and offer the state’s five land-based casinos the opportunity to expand into the online market. HB 2934 has now passed in both the state House and Senate by a wide margin, after getting through the House by a landslide 72-22 vote in February.
  9. If you follow the legislative doings in the online gambling world August was both an exciting and frustrating month. Late amendments reopened the door for California's online poker bill, and touched off a contentious debate over which group was most deserving of the title "obstructionist." But in the end 2016 ended the same as the last 10 in the Golden State, with the legislative deadline to pass bills having come and gone and the state's online poker bill sitting untouched, once again slamming the door shut on online poker legalization. But as the saying goes, when one door is clos
  10. Since New Jersey regulated online gaming in 2013, players have had a limited number of options to choose from when it came to online poker. This week they got another option, with the launch of PalaPoker.com, the latest from Pala Interactive, the California-based online gaming company run by the Pala Band of Mission Indians. Pala operates under the Borgata license but PalaPoker.com is a standalone poker room, meaning it’s not part of any other network. They're looking to create “We are excited to get our poker product launched as we have spent the last three years building a new po
  11. [caption width="640"] As the calendar turns to 2017, Pennsylvania is still a must-watch state for iGaming regulation.[/caption] Like years past, 2016 came and went without another state legalizing online gaming. Despite some serious hope in Michigan and Pennsylvania that an online gaming bill would pass in either state during the legislative session, the fact remains that no state has legalized online gaming since Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey did so in 2013. And with Donald Trump elected as president, there is some concern that a federal online gambling ban, possibly in the form of
