    (CBS4) DENVER

    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." What he discovered is the bets have been showing up on his Washington Mutual Visa bill under the names of different businesses.

    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.

    fear, fear of the putz' who carve out, fear of... fear

    I gamble and I'm proud to say so. Online on land, and in between. It is a pursuit of happiness sometimes, other times it is simply what it is; volition. And I assert I have the right to excercise my volition - godgiven or otherwise.
