People who bet online will not face criminal prosecution under the law because it does not ban Internet gambling; instead it requires that banks and other financial institutions block credit-card payments to gambling sites.

It couldn't be said in a more beautiful way...

That is exactly what the government, is trying to do, with the Port Security Bill which recently passed.

As simple as that, they are just not allowing financial institutions to fund off shore gambing sites...Never the less, this is like a wish that might not come true since enforcing this would take millions of $$$$ from your pockets and a lot of banks believe it would be impossible to track every transaction.

So relax, at no point gambling on the internet has become illegal. The Wire Act still is an unupdated document and can not be applied to today's scenario.

Be sure that you are not going to jail if they find you playing online, except for Washington players.

That's nice and all, but if a casino blocks me from playing because I live in the States (and this new Act), that's just as efficient as saying it's illegal for me to gamble.

Maybe I won't be criminally prosecuted, but I still can't gamble online. :(
