  1. In what is seen as a big win for interstate online poker, the First Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission in their case against the U.S. Department of Justice and its revised opinion of the Wire Act. As originally reported by OnlinePokerReport.com, the ruling upholds the decision of a lower court that the reinterpretation of the Wire Act by the Department of Justice in 2018 is incorrect. In that revised opinion, the DOJ sought to expand the coverage of the Wire Act beyond sports betting to include all forms of gambling which included lotteries a
  2. [caption width="640"] Attorney General Jeff Sessions is considering a ban on online gaming.[/caption] During his confirmation hearing in early January, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he’d be open to revisiting the Justice Department’s interpretation of the Wire Act, which allowed states the opportunity to legalize online gaming. Just three months later, it appears Sessions may be following through with that intention. Within the past two weeks, the National Governors Association and the Poker Players Alliance have publicly expressed their opposition to any move from Sessions
  3. [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
  4. The "conservative educational foundation" Judicial Watch, which is heavily supported by Las Vegas Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson (pictured), is doing its part by suing the US federal government for access to documents pertaining to the Department of Justice's 2011 reinterpretation of the Wire Act. In 2006, Congress passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA), which made it illegal for some online gaming businesses to accept bets from customers in the US. While some online poker sites decided to pull the plug on their operations in America, others remained open for business.
  5. In January, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) hijacked a critical Attorney General confirmation hearingto spread the gospel of Las Vegas Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson. The latter, whose properties include the Venetian and Palazzo in Las Vegas, has pledged to spend "whatever it takes" to rid the US of online gambling and online poker. Now, the Attorney General nominee has responded after Graham repeatedly cut her off during the hearing and showed little interest in what she had to say. As part of a 200-page documenton page 125, Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch (pictured) shared her thoughts on
  6. Regulated online poker in the US made some leaps in 2019, and if the market can have a similar legislative year in 2020 as it did in 2019, things will be moving along quite nicely. In 2019, Pennsylvania online poker went live, West Virginia entered the regulated arena, and Michigan redeemed itself. Pennsylvania Goes Live As the saying goes, it’s better late than never. Following up on Pennsylvania’s regulation of online poker in late 2017, Kevin O’Toole, executive director of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, announced in April of 2019 that that PA online poker would go live on July 15.
  7. On Wednesday, longtime reporter John Ralston wrote on his blog, "Here's what's floating around DC. I smell a Nevada company." What followed was text of a draft bill that expands the scope of the Wire Act by adding the following language: "The term 'any sporting event or contest' includes games in material part or predominantly subject to chance which are played for a prize, including games in which players compete against each other, and not against any person, entity, or fellow player hosting the game, the outcome of which, over any significant interval, is predominantly determined by the ski
