The U.S. Department of Justice recently released a legal opinion that allows states to offer online gambling, and Illinois has already announced that it will soon make online lottery tickets available, according to the Chicago Daily Herald.
Illinois Lottery superintendent Michael Jones announced on Monday that the state will offer these tickets in the next three or four months. Jones will be calling for a meeting in the next 10 days to iron out all of the details, the media outlet reports.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the Poker Players Alliance announced that this 13-page legal opinion was a much needed clarification to the law.
"This will provide policy makers at both the state and federal level with the legal confidence to move forward with licensing and regulation of online poker and other non-sporting activity within their respective jurisdictions," the group’s executive director, John Pappas, told the news source.
If online poker starts becoming legal, how far behind do you think online roulette is? Do you think that roulette will be next or will it be blackjack or slots?
