News of the Month...Who would have thought that after nearly four years the UIGEA has still not gone into effect.

Precisely, approximately $100 billion worth of business, which is approximately what American's spend each year gambling online...

America's UIGEA Online Gambling Ban to go in "Effect" December 1, 2009

Considering the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act was passed back in 2005, it seems somewhat surprising that it still has not gone into effect. But then again, if you consider all of the flaws in the legislation, not to mention the burdens it places on the financial industry, you might say the UIGEA has never really been an "effective" piece of legislation to begin with. Nonetheless, the UIGEA is actually supposed to go into law in just one month. December 1, 2009 is basically the deadline that banks have to begin enforcing the law. In other words, come December 1st, banks are required to cease processing transactions used for online gambling. Well, I take that back. Not just online gambling, but certain forms of online gambling. A carve-out ridden piece of legislation (the UIGEA allows for horse racing bets and fantasy sports), this is precisely why online casino gamblers and poker players need not worry about being denied their online gambling fix. The American Banking Association (whose members represent something like 95% of banks in the U.S.), have long been saying it will be nigh impossible to police and identify all of the transactions used for online gambling purposes, and that placing this burden on the private financial sector is unfair and unrealistic. And never mind the fact that online casinos have found inventive ways to securely process transactions, while simultaneously bypassing any red tape. Certainly, the UIGEA has been a major nuisance to many a top-tier online gambling business - but, that's how it goes...for now.  The reality is that it probably won't be long before the UIGEA gets overturned with legislation to tax and regulate online gambling - even if it's just for online poker. Reports now show that regulating online poker in the U.S. would generate nearly $42 billion in taxes over the next decade - and you can rest assured these numbers have caught the attention of the U.S. Congress, sixty members of which have already signed on to support the Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative, which reports that Americans gamble nearly $100 billion a year on the internet.
