UIGEA Rules Postponed By Six Months

Posted on November 27, 2009. Filed under: Industry News | Tags: , , , , |

The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act has been delayed six months from December 1st 2009 until June 2010 and Repulican Representative Barney Frank is expected to make an announcement to this effect today (Friday).

The impending UIEGA is the main reason why many US players are no longer welcome to play on the majority of online gambling sites as it has become a legal mine field. With the proceedings now delayed until next year, there is a realistic chance of the bill being over turned. 

Frank is trying to push through a new bill, entitled HR 2267, supported by 63 other congressmen and women, which gives the US Government a complete framework to fully licence and regulate the internet gambling industry. If successful, it should finally allow American players the freedom to play where they wish.
