UIGEA Online Casino ban Delay being considered by the US Treasury
A number of letters sent to the US Department of the Treasury has triggered action to be taken about the impending enforcement of the UIGE A set to take hold on December 1st.
Nineteen congressmen, the Poker Players Alliance, the American Greyhound Track Operators Association and the National Thoroughbred Racing Association are behind the letters asking for the delay to be imposed. Only two letters have been sent that insist there be no delay in implementing the UIGEA ban.
According to sources, no decision has been made as of yet but time is running short for fans of online gambling as December 1st draws nearer and Thanksgiving preventing further talks from taking place late this week.
Indecision would draw a short-term delay while the arguements for and against are carefully examined. The mess that was caused by the UIGEA sneak introduction in 2006 has been going on for over 3 years with many payment processors not understanding the law as to which gambling companies they can pass money between.
