The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 does not mean it is a crime for people residents to gamble on the web; American players are still free to bet anywhere online, said Rick Smith and Keith Furlong, that respectively are the Executive and Deputy Directors of the Interactive Gaming Council (IGC), at a press release this week.
The IGC is a major trade association for the international interactive gaming industry having its own membership operating or supplying services to nearly all of the respectable interactive websites on the casino online indonesia Internet.
Their press release continued, saying the charge focuses on the prosecution of financial institutions handling transmission of money from U.S. players of internet gaming websites. So some web sites might not accept wagers, as most of the publicly traded online gaming companies announced they would quit taking American stakes after recent passing of this bill from Congress.
But they stressed that the bill will probably cause unintentional adverse effects, in direct opposition to the bill’s purpose.
“From the guise of protecting vulnerable Americans- minors who would like to gamble and adults who can not control their gaming – Congress has actually improved the chance to these groups,” said IGC Deputy Director Furlong.
