NASPL against the anti online gambling
April 9, 2014
The North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) has recently joined other organizations in the battle against the new regulation to ban any chances to create a federal gambling legislation in the United States. This is the first time that every single one of the US Casino's moguls have got together to create new bans to stop the development of the online gaming industry, one of the most relevant markets in this day and age. Land-based casino's owners, such as Sheldon Adelson and the Native American tribes, have agreed on creating coalitions to stop the advance of the new technologies in the gambling industry, just to assure themselves all the profit from gambling activities. The NASPL is the most recent organization that has entered this new war in the United States; while most of the world enjoys online gaming sites, some of the United States still see potential hazards on the new federal gambling legislation that would allow gaming operators to provide players with real money casino games through the online network, Internet. The North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) wanted to be clear about the new attempts to take away the online gaming industry from the global gaming market; from there, the NASPL created the Coalition for Consumer and Online Protection (C4COP) to fight back Sheldon Adelson's attacks.
Senators Lindsey Graham and Jason Chaffetz are two of the official members that are backing up the reinstatement of the US Wire Act, in order to ban any online gambling practice in the country, except for horseracing betting sites. US Wire ACT was overruled back in 2011 when Attorney General Eric Holder finally proved the US Federal Government wrong; in these days and age, putting on practice a law from 1961 to ban online gaming is implausible and therefore that law could only apply to sports betting. NASPL executive director David Gale has addressed himself to Senator Graham to let them know about the new law that pretends to stop an industry from becoming lucrative and valuable for the country's development: "States should be given the right to determine the games that are offered, as well as the manner in which they are being delivered to their customers".
