US Government Considers All Forms of Gambling as Illegal
The government of the United States of America considers all forms of online gambling as illegal. However, millions of its citizens still participate in illegal online gambling activities such as poker, casino games and sporting contests.
This inconsistency between the policies and reality on the ground has resulted in more Americans engaging in reckless and unprotected online gambling every day (Stewart, 2006, p.1). The aim of this paper is to analyze the current situation of illegal online gambling and propose alternative policies that would clean up and streamline the situation.
