Online casino and gambling experts, Jackpot247, have commented on claims from libertarian groups that a federal ban on online gambling would be the first step towards government control of the internet.

The introduction of a new bill to ban online gambling across the US has so far received a mixed reaction, but a coalition of libertarian groups have taken things a step further by claiming the bill would be the first step in more government control over the internet as a whole. In a letter sent to the leaders of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, they said: “[The bill] is an inappropriate and unnecessary use of federal powers that infringes on the rights of individuals and states.”

The coalition also condemned the bill for “setting a troubling precedent and providing fodder to those who would like to see increased internet regulation in the future. This bill allows the federal government to take a heavy hand in regulating the internet, opening the door for increased internet regulation in the future.”

Online gambling experts, Jackpot247, have commented on these predictions, focusing on the claims that a federal ban could lead to more government control of internet activity in the US. A spokesperson for the company said:

“The prospect of an outright ban on internet gambling in the US is indeed very troubling, with the potential for unregulated gambling sites to take over the market and put consumers at risk. If this was to happen, individual states such as Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey, which have all legalised online gambling within state borders, would be robbed of the authority to regulate the practice, and an outright ban could mean that players would have to resort to less safe, unregulated sites that also removes tax revenue from the equation.”
