The Suite Blog >> Kentucky Gaming Ain't Nothin But a Bush Thing

November 12, 2008 - With plenty still unresolved in the online gambling domain name debacle in Kentucky, the Jackpot Factory group has decided it best to cease doing business with residents of Kentucky....And for the time being, with people residing in neighboring States. Apparently, Microgaming is dropping out of the U.S. market altogether, which is precisely what the U.S. "powers that be" want.

But I mean, seriously folks, does anyone actually think the Kentucky onslaught against online casinos, poker rooms and sportsbooks is all due to Governor Stephen Beshear? Sure, I certainly wouldn't throw it past him. But the fact of the matter (in my opinion...I like to opinionate facts okay) is that Kentucky (like Louisiana and New York) is merely a platform for a Bush administration crackdown at the federal level.

As the President of the Interactive Media, Entertainment and Gaming Association (iMEGA) recently discussed, if Kentucky is allowed to seize the domain names of 141 online gambling destinations (all of which are headquartered and licensed overseas), a dangerous precedent will be set for other governments - local, state or international - to do the same. I mean, is it possible a State like Kentucky could set such a precedent. Well, I guess anything's possible in a corrupt government.

That said, I respect Kentucky's right to keep its citizens from gambling online (although I'm sure Kentucky's own citizens don't necessarily feel the same way). However, when such a wielding of power amounts to protectionism and contends on blackmail tactics, I can hardly stand it. I don't mean to get political or anything (or do I?), but thank God for a new administration, whether they overturn the UIGEA or not.
