    In fact, depending on how you read the bill, visiting this website is also a Class C Felony. If you're in Washington State, go turn yourself in now.

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    But you can always play the lotto, right?

    Just outrageous

    I can believe what is happening..

    And everyone arm crossed allowing this...

    Soon, they will come in to your house and tell you: HELLO, WE ARE FROM THE US GOVERMENT, WE ARE INSTALLING RECORDING DEVICES ALL AROUND YOUR HOUSE TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE TALKING WHAT IS ALLOWED..

    People say that in Cuba you dont have the right for religion, opinion and other stuff...

    At least they are aware of it.. The US does the same, but with a beatiful picture been sold to you... Freedom my "%"%&$"..

    Well,

    I cant do much. I am just a third world country citizen who lives by what ever is decided up there.

    If Antigua is making such a big complain, and not even them are making things change? What could I do...?

    However some citizens in the states might have noticed that every day their rights are in risk of bieng violated more as time passes

    I have family in Everett, Washington, and they say that you can't go a mile in any direction from where they are without running into an Indian casino. The state has tons of these Indian casinos and relies heavily on the revenue generated by these Indian scum. Not a morality issue at all why they have banned internet gambling.... just the Almighty buck. How ironic also is the fact that Nevada is one of the few states that has made internet gambling illegal.

    My god

    Indian Scum??? You have problem with indian people?

    Probably you are another white proud person who believes is your God's given gift to rule over everyone... any ways, I really don't care abut your opinion on other races.

    The point is, why would the goverment ban sites? DO YOU KNOW WHAT BAN MEANS? It means you won't have access because they believe you shouldn't see it. Not even asking you what your position is.

    I am happy that indian reservations make money out of the US people adicted to gambling. Las Vegas I've heard is an awesome place to be... Never the less.. if someone enjoys just making a cup of coffee at 1 am, not getting all dressed up and use the money they have worked for and spend it in something they want, who the @%@ these guys from the goverment think they are on telling you what to do with your time, money and what to see on the web??????

    I don't have anything against the US.. but apparently you seem to be some one who, like sheep, agrees on everything "the shepard" says or commands.

    This is more than if gambling online is good or bad. Today is gambling, probably tomorrow will be which stores you can buy from, which religous sites you can visit, and what are you allowed to read and what not.

    Is it not considered racist/offensive to refer to them as Indian scum?

    Don't most governments control citizens' access to gambling?

    If you are so worried about people's freedoms, then maybe you should focus on other, more-restrictive countries; because our freedom to gamble has actually expanded over the past couple of decades as casinos and lotteries have proliferated across America, even deep into the Bible belt.

    Are you happy if internet casinos do the same? It doesn't reflect well on your industry when you celebrate preying on addicted gamblers.

    Lay off you big babies! Anybody who doesn't earn their living is pure scum in my book, and the casino Indians top the list for me. I live down the road from an Indian casino and reservation, and believe me they've done nothing but hurt the area by buying up all the land around here from their casino revenues and increasing the tax burden on the rest of us. Even though the Supreme court has ordered them to pay taxes on the land purchased outside of their tiny reservation, they still haven't coughed up a dime, and refuse to acknowledge the U.S Supreme court's decision. The self-proclaimed tribal leader is the brains behind their many enterprises and is a graduate of Harvard. Without him they'd just be a bunch of lazy drunks like they have been for decades. Don't make a stand against me unless you're living it first hand like I am. Most of them are lazy SCUM in my area.

    I'm moving to South Dakota and I understand it is a felony there already. I hope at least my wife can visit me in jail for some conjugal visits. :D

    Only 50% players come from North America. Including "land of the Freedom" :rolleyes: .
    Too many times, there is some absurd T&C's at some casinos, because this one country <sigh>

    There is almost 200 other countires as well ...if u didn't know.

    (sorry, lazy to check exact number)

    That's an amazing fact in itself though... 201 (for example) countries, with over 50% coming from just one of them.

    It's like the old Tommy Cooper gag... "One in four of the people in the world are Chinese, I can't work out which one it is in the Nolan Sisters..."

    I agree the comments are a bit harsh there Tim! Your personal experience is fair enough, but to use a generalisation against an entire race like that is a bit naughty.

    Freedom for gambing expanding??

    Probably you are talking about lotteries or raffles where the US goverment is making their cut.

    You may not know it, but US banks are not allowing their customers to fund any account that is related or might be related to end up on an offshore company dedicated to provide gambling services.

    The Indian reservations probably didn't had another option. Do you think the owners of those casinos are Indian Chiefs ??????? I guarantee you not.

    Most of those proffits probably end up in hands of people having gambling business all around the globe.

    I guarantee you that freedom of gambling is not expanding.

    Here is the problem... The US knows that their citizens are playing on an industry of 15billion proffit a year or more. Every year expanding incredibly...
    So, they are pissed that your so precioused green Benjamins are being sent to other countries with out them receiving part of that.

    So they tell you about underage people wagering, compulsive gambling and all those sotries about the industry being associated to organized crime and money laundring for you to sympathize with them. I am sure they are doing a great job doing that.... So, how do they prevent you from not doing this?? They want to tell you which sites you can't visit and where you can't spend your money. If you think about it, is probably the same as going around New York for cuban cigars, which if you find them, it will be probably as bad as you looking for crack. Or try taking a commercial flight to visit the amazing Cuban beaches... Because they are not friends with the US you must play along and act as if they don't exist.

    Think about it, freedom of gambling in the US is not expanding at all.

    Timy5ny, regarding my balls, I won't play your childish closed minded game. If you don't addmit you are been used as a ragdoll, thats your problem... I am not here to fight with you...

    Maybe it is possible the poster was talking about the casinos, not the people's descent who own the land. If this is the case I understand. Harrah's Cherokee in North Carolina is the biggest ripoff casino I have ever seen. A vast majority of the machines are not regulated. They are Pot of Golds manufactured in Georgia with no regulation and from my understanding can be rigged to pay a payout % like a slot machine, not like a random dealt video poker machine. They are not available in any "real" casino and cannot be used in any casino state. I use the term real because Harrah's Cherokee is dry and does not have table games so IMO it is not a real casino. I have to think Harrah's walks away with a good chuck of the profits too for their management and brand name use.

    If it was a knock at those who own the land the casinos are on then I retract my defense of the statement.
