Are They Online Yet?

The B.C. Lottery Corporation launched its online gambling website on the morning of July 14, but within hours it was shut down.

The British Columbia Lottery’s online gaming site is not online, but will be again officials say. But then they are the same officials that said the site shut down because it had too much traffic, when it seems the truth was somewhat less romantic – players could access other players’ accounts.  The question is one technicalities, not morality or legality, it will be back up, operating and taking bets soon.

In the District of Columbia, Barney Frank and his committee, the House Committee on Financial Services, are working on a bill to legalize and tax Internet gambling in the United States; they might have finished marking the bill up today, but they spent too much time at lunch.  They will be back to work on the bill getting something ready to sent to the floor of House. Has the day finally come, when online gaming will be legal and available in every household?  Probably not yet, there are wars yet to be fought in Congress, but we are getting closer.
