Illinois May Still Move Towards Poker Legalization In 2018

08/06/2018

There is not a lot of time left in 2018 for various states to make their moves towards poker legalization, but some are more likely to do so than others. Illinois is one state where we could indeed see some movement on the issue. They have hinted at a desire to get in on the action in the past, and watching other states collect tax revenue from the practice almost certainly entices Illinois to want to do the same. 

The legislature in Illinois had largely gone mum on the topic until recently. They did not report much progress on anything to do with it until a lawmaker announced that there would be two hearings held in regards to online poker in Illinois. He wants to make it known that the state is at least considering proposals for legal online poker within their boundaries in the near future. 

Leading advocates for the legalization of online poker have been called in to testify during these hearings, so that is a hopeful sign for those who have been interested in exactly how this kind of legislation is going to move forward. The reality is that there are only a limited number of ways that this can happen, so it is comforting to see that the legislature is considering at least some of their options. 

There are reasons for supporters of online poker to be pleased with the progress that has been made on the issue up to this point. For one, the ruling by the Supreme Court that sports wagering is to be made legal is a big step in the right direction. The other thing is that legal online poker has a lot of support among the people. It is something that people want to include alongside legal daily fantasy sports, and other gambling activities that they have been eager to embrace for a long time. The fact that more states have not gotten their act together with this is amazing and a little bit frustrating to those who are just ready to play their online poker already. There is still some hope that Illinois will get their act together on this one.
