Online Gaming Regulations

United States

On 30 September 2006, the United States Congress passed The Safe Port Act. That measure also contained certain provisions known as the 'Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006' that will affect the processing of payments between US customers and online gaming companies, that are publicly traded and licensed and regulated in respected jurisdictions.

President Bush signed the Act into law on 13 October 2006, immediately making unlawful the receipt by a gambling business of proceeds or monies in connection with unlawful internet gambling. The Act does not clarify the definition of unlawful gambling. However, as the first piece of Federal legislation dealing explicitly with internet gaming, it does make clear that the US government intends to stop the flow of funds from Americans to online gaming operators through criminal sanction.
