Dannel Malloy Predicts Legal Online Gambling in Connecticut

Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy says that legalized online casino gambling is an inevitability.  His statement comes as a result of the recent USDOJ legal redefinition of the 1961 Federal Wire Act to exclude and thereby permit online gambling.  Malloy said that there exists a certain misunderstanding regarding online gambling in Connecticut.

 

Malloy looks at online gambling from a very pragmatic perspective.  For example, his office is looking into the possibility of having the state lottery operate online casinos.  He stressed that as far as he is concerned, it is clear that internet gambling is coming to Connecticut. 

 

Malloy explained that the current land-based casino industry in Connecticut already employs about 20,000 Connecticuters and brings the state coffers about $350,000,000 annually.  That said, the economic considerations are pretty clear cut.  Furthermore, Malloy adds that there is no such thing as borders when it comes to the internet.  He explains that there is an almost total failure in enforcing online gambling prohibitions, so the only logical option is to create a local legal framework for USA online casinos that can be regulated.

 

The expectation is that as a result of the new understanding of the Wire Act, many states are going to be engaging in legislation towards legalizing and regulating online gambling; therefore, it is important that Connecticut analyze their approach to online gambling in order to best take advantage of the current situation.  Malloy elaborated that the question in Connecticut is how to join the national decision while simultaneously protecting the local industry of land-based casinos.  Since there are no signs that Congress is going to undo the USDOJ’s decision, casino reviews are optimistic about Connecticut and other states moving forward with legalization.
