    The Washington DC council's approval of a measure allowing online gambling has certainly been controversial.

    First off, there were complaints that the bill was "stealthed" through as an attachment to a supplemental budgetry measure, and that insufficient public consultation had been carried out. There were also accusations of a conflict of interest involving the introducer of the bill and a local law lobbying firm.

    The opponents of the measure then persuaded council to postpone implementation until a public consultation had been carried out, and the DC Lottery, which will be responsible for internet gambling in the district, set about organising an information and consultation campaign across the district's wards.

    The latest development is that some residents objected to the consultation taking place during their summer months, and the information and consultation program has had to be put back a month to end September.

    In the meantime, implementation is on hold.

    And Congress hasn't officially complained as a federal entity so far.

    What's not clear about this is why they don't just authorize slots in bars. It's kind of absurd to be the capital city of a country that has every online casino in the world running for their lives, and then announce it's okay to gamble online. Where? How? Is there some magical mechanism that'll allow the DoC to keep track of gambling revenues where other states and the Federal Government itself have failed? This is a big case of one hand not knowing who the other one's paying. My prediction is it'll end badly for any company that gets involved with it, and that seems to be the general reckoning; to date, nothing substantial has emerged from this for DC or the gaming community at large.
