More Delays for Online Gambling in District of Columbia

More Delays for Online Gambling in District of Columbia

The District of Columbia seemed poised to break new ground as th first US jurisdiction to implemental legal online gambling for residents when it passed laws early in 2011 to legalize and regulate online gambling, but efforts have since come to a stall when it comes to the implementation process.

The same agency responsible for the state lottery was tabbed with managing the online gambling initiatives (which include online casinos offering games such as slots and blackjack as well as online poker), but recent questions have led to a delay in rolling out any onlin casino or poker games.

According to The Washington Times, council members Jack Evans, Tommy Wells and Muriel Bowser have called for an investigation into irregularities in the process that led to Intralot winning the D.C. Lottery contract in 2009. That investigation has caused the online efforts to be put on hold as well.

According to Evans, the onling gambling bill that was passed "...should have been introduced as a free-standing bill; then we would have had the necessary hearings. Since that’s not what happened, we’re trying to play catch-up by holding hearings after the fact."

The delay also stems from the fact that proposed meetings for the public to voice concerns about online gaming in the District of Columbia have yet to be held, with no official dates announced but plans to hold the meetings being pushed back likely to October.
