For once, online gamblers have some good news from the United States Department of Justice.
Essentially, the DOJ has clarified that the Wire Act of 1961 applies to wagers placed on ‘a sporting event or contest’ only; it would not, according to the ruling, apply to the selling of ‘lottery tickets online to in-state adults’. While few online gamblers want to buy lottery tickets online, the principles that the DOJ cited in this ruling are equally applicable to in-state online poker, and should help rapidly move several states toward online poker regulation.
