    Anyone waiting "patiently" for news on WHEN US citizens can gamble again online? Loved gambling every morning with my coffee. Anyone else bored in the morning? Would love to hear your ideas as to when and IF there will be online gambling for us poor USA citizens. Right now --------- I don't gamble at all online anymore - too skeptical and scared !

    I know its not good that the US shut down gambling. But I think it’s only around the corner when the US will open its doors to selected gambling companies. I could see the main land based casino opening online sites first and serving the US.

    I feel for you not being able to enjoy your toast and slots in the morning :D

    My "toast" in the morning is not there! And, still wonder how long it will take for US citizens to wait to do what they want to do with their money. Seems like if US wants to get involved in the internet gaming - it will take months and months (maybe even years) to figure it all out. Meanwhile, I feel like I am in the "prohibition" era when they denied us alcohol. Now, they deny us gambling. What's next?

    Another bill has been sent to the house. Although I think it's the same one that was denied before. Don't think anyone can give an exact answer on a yay or nay date.

    I understand the need for things being taxed/regulated. Also understand all of the good things that come from our taxes. But it does seem odd that we work all year, have taxes coming out of our checks, still face the chance of "owing" more at the end of the year, pay taxes on most goods/services all year, finally save a bit of money AND still can't spend it without someone else feeling they deserve a cut. Funny some would even argue for the "death tax." Yea somehow my death should mean more taxes for those who can't control their spending. Sorry I'll stop....rant count down was coming......:mad:

    Odd they don't want to reimburse me any of the thousands I've lost at B&M's etc but O, no let me actually win half of what I lost and then comes their grubby little hands. (last one).

    Sadly I'm actually all for it though because at least then we will hopefully have more places to play at. :yahoo:

    side note: I do love America, just some things make very little sense....

    This is the bill:
    The Internet Gambling Regulation and Tax Enforcement Act, H.R. 2230

    From news articles:
    I just copied pasted a few parts of the "news" for you:

    U.S. Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) introduced a House bill Friday that would allow for licensing, regulation and taxation of Internet poker. It would permit individual states to opt out if they choose and disallow use of credit cards to deposit funds in online poker accounts.

    Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, and others said they believe that a bill focused only on poker will gain more traction than legislation introduced by Reps. John Campbell, R-Calif., and Barney Frank, D-Mass., earlier this year that would have legalized all Internet gambling.

    Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., introduced a companion bill to Frank’s measure in the last Congress that would have authorized a process for taxing online gambling. He told National Journal on Friday that he is waiting to see if Barton’s bill advances before deciding whether to reintroduce his measure. McDermott noted that if Barton’s bill were to pass, he expects that a measure authorizing a tax on such transactions would move quickly through Congress.

    I'm no expert on this subject, but my feeling is it will be several more YEARS yet... :(
    In the meantime you can still gamble online, but just need to be careful which establishment you choose. There is plenty of information to help you choose around the forum, for starters CM's Accredited List.

    Good luck... and Good breakfast! :thumbsup:

    Thank you all for input. If I read correctly - July's bill has to do with online poker (& perhaps someone may try to introduce "all gambling"). Would be interesting to do a poll re: how many US citizens continue to do online gambling. Appears to me that alot of people are having problems depositing AND withdrawing. I will check your suggested "list". Thanks again -------- breakfast remains dull !

    I'm not able to edit my original post to make it clearer so figured I'd just reply here. If gambling by means of poker online was made to be legal then gambling online has a good chance at being made legal. One would have a hard time arguing why it's ok to play poker online but not a slot machine. (at least one would hope)
