    Lawmakers have gone to great lengths to try to stop gambling on the Internet. One of the most effective methods has been banning the use of American issued credit cards, but Internet casinos based outside the U.S. are getting around those laws. A CBS4 investigation reveals how gamblers are still able to place their bets.

    CBS4's Rick Sallinger started by going to an online gambling Web site. It may look like a game, but it's serious business.

    CBS4 went into the site called "Full Tilt Poker." $42,000 was on just one table Sallinger viewed. Online gambling was a $15 billion a year business until Congress put a major dent in it. It created new laws and enforced existing ones to make it illegal to use U.S. credit cards to gamble online.

    One Colorado player CBS4 spoke with asked that we not use his name since gambling online is illegal. Despite the credit card ban, he has been able to use his Visa card to place bets on "Full Tilt Poker."

    You can tell the guy is an idiot because he's all "sshhhhhh...online gambling is <looks around, hunching down and in Elmer Fudd voice says....> illegal!"

    What on this scorched earth is the matter with people who think online gambling is illegal??? :what: It is NOT illegal unless your state wrote a law specifically banning CASINO games like blackjack, slots, keno, craps, etc. The Wire Act covers only sportsbetting.
