USA bans online interstate gambling

8-5 USA bans online interstate gamblingReading Time: 1 minute

 

The U.S. Government has banned all forms of online gambling involving interstate transactions. The U.S. Justice Department reversed its stand from 2011, according to which only interstate sports betting was illegal. However, as per the new clarification, all online gambling involving interstate transactions is now prohibited.

The ruling will not affect online gambling in which the wagers are placed from within a state’s borders, however, this suggests casinos will have to have both a physical presence and a secure system in place to ensure that no bets originate from outside of the state. It is unknown at this time how the industry will navigate that issue in a way that satisfies the revised federal regulations.

This reversal could also affect crypto-based betting platforms like Augur although decentralisation could push the definition of “interstate” to its philosophical limits. Most deeply affected are interstate lotteries as well as poker games that run between Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey, according to the report. Casino operator shares fell on the news Tuesday, and if the past is any indication, the industry will likely fiercely endeavour to reverse this decision.

7-16 Delaware North Sues Miomni Gaming Over Fraudulent ClaimsReading Time: 1 minute

 

Delaware North, the US based casino operator, has filed a lawsuit against its sports betting joint venture partner Miomni Gaming.

The operator is seeking monetary damages through the suit filed in the Chancery Court of Delaware, including Miomni’s 49% stake in the BetLucky joint venture, which the supplier is apparently refusing to give up. The joint venture was made to launch the BetLucky sports betting platform. Delaware North then terminated the contract earlier this month.

The operator claims Miomni made fraudulent claims to induce it to enter into a joint venture, as well as of wilfully breaching a limited liability company agreement governing the operation of BetLucky.

Delaware North claims that Miomni and chief executive Venner repeatedly claimed to own intellectual property rights to the platform, including the source code for the front end and back end of the platform.
