    Congrats to Nevada and they rightly took a swipe at NJ and Christie. Thanks again to Christie for looking out only for his friends and making stupid decisions. He was so busy pumping public money, including pension money, into the Revel Casino that he forgot to think about anything else. The only holdup in NJ is all the corrupt hands going into the till. Nevada will get it right. As usual NJ will get it wrong and billions in revenue will go missing. Now Christie just has to figure out a way to blame school teachers.

    It will be interesting to see when the FBI update the claim on their website that "it’s illegal to gamble online in the United States".

    You have to admire the drive of the Nevada Legislature imo...the governor wanted additional stuff included (right to negotiate interstate compacts without Congressional approval and a few other things) and despite a bit of a clash with Assemblyman Horne he got his way....all in the 30 day timespan he had set as a target.

    Christie, on the other hand, faffed around with his conditional veto, and his New Jersey lawmakers are still trying to meet his demands and get a revised bill through.

    Meanwhile the much-vaunted and horrendously expensive Revel has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and persuaded its creditors to accept a debt for equity deal....better than losing a slew of jobs I guess, but hardly a success story.

    One of the interesting* things about the NV bill is the so-called "bad actor" clause which was left in after conjecture about it being removed. This essentially means any gambling operator who took US players after the UIGEA was passed cannot apply for a licence for 10 years although there is now a caveat that says if they showed willing to withdraw from the USA soon after the UIGEA, they could apply after 5.


    * Interesting as in, it's convienently anti-competitive too ;)

    If somehow they can then offer poker to foreign jurisdictions, then we'd really be talking.

    This is nice, but it's of limited impact, IMO.

    Presumably both NJ and NV allow this in their laws but there is no chance the feds will go along with that. Also, I think the title of the thread is a bit misleading:

    1) It is only for online poker
    2) NV legalized online poker in 2011
    3) This law from last week allowed the governor to enter multi stats gaming pacts, it did not make any new games legal.

    Not at all. I have worked in both the private and public sector. I was also fortunate enough to retire early and now do whatever I want. I am also a very proud liberal who is disgusted with both the democrats and republicans in NJ. Christie is no exception and only won because voter turnout was so low and many democrats refused to vote for Corzine.

    Christie is a walking talking stereotype of an oversized,ignorant, and angry person from New Jersey. He is an embarrassment but his real downfall will eventually come from all his deals he has made. The latest being his deals with Ashbritt Inc. from Florida and the bankrupt Revel given public money. So much for free enterprise and not needing government help.

    Christie's so called popularity is as real as the polls telling Romney he would win. If there was a real challenge by anyone of substance, whether democrat or republican, he would be toast. BTW, I once crossed party lines and voted for a republican governor named Thomas Kean. He was one of the best governors NJ ever had and even he can't stand Christie.

    Give it time. I guarantee you Christie will completely screw up online gambling in NJ.

    Yep other states are falling in line due to too much consumber backlash. Rumor has it that Cali and Massachusetts are next up but lets see.
