Online casino and gambling experts, Jackpot247, have responded to opposition for plans to restore prohibition for online gambling across the US.

Since it was revealed that some US lawmakers are seeking to reinstate prohibition for online gambling across the entire country, through a bill known as the ‘The Restoration of America’s Wire Act’, many affected parties have begun making a stand against the efforts to outlaw the industry. For example, the Poker Players Alliance recently launched a ‘National Call to Action,’ and some states’ National Council of Legislators has also opposed the plans. Other parties, such as the Fraternal Order of Police, selected Democratic and Republican governors, the National Association of State Legislators and the national organisation for state lotteries, have also joined.

The Poker Players Alliance, describing itself as a “grassroots advocacy group with more than one million members nationwide,” said: “We cannot stand by and allow for misguided legislation to reverse the incredible advancements we have made in consumer and player protections and the ability of the individual states to determine whether to regulate online poker.”

Online gambling experts, Jackpot247, have responded to news of this anti-gambling bill being opposed by various organisations. A spokesperson for the company said:

“Despite the successful implementation of regulated online gambling in various states across the US, there is still a lot of resistance to any kind of change for the industry. Plans to reinstate opposition, however, don’t seem to be the answer, proven by overwhelming opposition to the new bill from US lawmakers. Many people believe that the decision whether or not to legalise the practice should lie with individual states, rather than on a federal level, and banning online gambling outright would not be the solution everyone is looking for.”
