fairplayusa poker regulationIn this week’s episode of Perspectives Weekly, America continues to move towards regulation of the online gambling industry. The movement has been spurred on by the powerful Las Vegas casinos which are pushing for political action.

It was only a matter of time before the powerful Vegas Casinos found a way to try and get a piece of the online gambling pie. Now that Vegas Casinos are in the game and they’re ready to jump aboard, we’re seeing a huge push, with FairPlayUSA being the vehicle of choice to lay the groundwork for their entry into the online gambling space.

It’s hard not to support the push, the feeling is that a fully regulated online gambling industry is better than where the industry is at now in the United States. Of course, if FairPlayUSA gets their way, the international online gaming companies will undoubtedly be left on the outside looking when the lock and chains drop on online poker in the US.
