Online gambling is a fairly new practice, but that is very controversial. His history began in the 90s, because the internet began to increase popularity. One of the first events that occurred was when the island government in the Caribbean, Antigua and Barbuda, gave Laws in 1994 which allowed online casinos there. This is called trade law and free processing. Realizing the possibility of almost endless money through online gambling, some entrepreneurs soared on the current legal occasion to start this new business.
Different companies are formed in the same year and more continuously formed in the following years. Some of these companies make online casinos, and others design software needed to run financial gambling financial transactions and develop new games. When online casinos began to increase in the number and become a very profitable business, with revenues reported by almost 835 million dollars in 1998 alone, different layers of the government u.S began to pay attention. One in particular, Senator Jon Kyl, a republican from Arizona, decided he would be the leader of the online casino and introduced the ban on internet gambling acting in an effort to limit gambling activities in the United States. The bill failed to graduate in Congress, and online gambling continued to grow, perhaps even better thanks to the attention of the media that had received the permission of the senators.
When online gambling continues, some companies make software packages that can be rented by online game sites for the percentage of their income. This helps many new online game sites appear. Around this time, Canada also began to curb online game activities, robbing offices and finally torturing one of the largest online gambling servers.
In 1999, Senator Kyla presented the revised version of the Bill of the Law, and once again, failed to get the support needed to pass. Meanwhile, Australia allows the creation of online casinos, which in turn is the only one that is permitted and is currently still operating. Although more candidates for casinos try to get a license in Australia, the Australian government quickly forms a law that prevents new online gambling operations.
In 2000, the Senator of the Republic of Bob Goodlatte from Virginia introduced the next prohibition action for Poker QQ Congress, and once again rejected. The following year, two bills will help cut online gambling passed in Congress. One of them is the latest version of the Wire Law, which makes it violate the law for individuals to be involved in the betting business or gambling. Other Bills seek to prevent online payments to online casinos by prohibiting institutions based at A.S. From the handling of the payment, it makes it more difficult for residents A.S. To be involved in online gambling.
Some lawsuits occur in the following years, and in 2006, several arrests of online gambling CEO were made. At the same time, u. discriminatory and violate the law.
Nevertheless, in October 2006, the law enforcement law that violated the law was approved by the Congress, although many integrity questions were used to forward it. Online casinos continue to operate and try to change the law to support them; Meanwhile, most operates off the coast, even though the population u.S still formed most of their customers.
