UIGEA Regulations Issued: Still Vague and Problematic

Nov. 12, 2008 - The US Department of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve System today released the final regulations for the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA). Volumes of testimony about the law's vagueness and practical unworkability from both within and without the administration, most notably from the US banking sector, upon which the burden for enforcing UIGEA will fall, appears not have swayed regulators, as the published regulations differed little from the draft version that had been the subject of debate for more than a year.

Why Has Poker Fallen On Such Hard Times?

The following is an opinion piece by Gambling911.com Publisher, Christopher Costigan.

The pundits are already suggesting that this year's World Series of Poker will witness declining television ratings just as the event has seen a drop in entries over the past two years.  ESPN will be airing the final this evening, although a winner was declared during the early morning hours.  It's the closest ESPN has ever aired the WSOP following live play.  It may all be for naught.

Poker has fallen on hard times and it has little to do with the shattered economy.
