Targeting the young, the poor and the elderly where they live, Internet gambling takes gambling too far. Internet Gambling crosses the line of responsible gaming by bringing gambling into our living rooms and onto our smartphones, tablets and home computers 24 hours a day without necessary protections. Congress must protect United States residents and citizens by restoring the federal ban on Internet gambling.

Why are we all united against internet gambling?

WE NEED YOUR HELP

On December 23, 2011, the Justice Department – with no public input or Congressional involvement – issued a legal opinion reversing its long-held position that the Wire Act bars Internet gambling, opening the door for states to authorize non-sports wagering over the Internet.

New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada have since passed legislation authorizing Internet gambling. California and other large states will likely consider the issue next year.

Congress should step in now and restore the policy banning Internet gambling to give Congress and the public time to fully examine and consider such issues as the potential for money laundering, terrorism financing, fraud and other criminal activity, participation by minors, exploitation of individuals with a gaming addiction and the impact on jobs and economic activity.
