The US-based Poker Player Alliance is decided to face against any legislation that is possible when it comes to online gambling at the ongoing lame-duck session associated with the Congress. PPA stands against any noticeable changes even when you will see an exception for poker. The expert poker player and PPA’s administrator director John Pappas expressed his concerns that there’s still the opportunity for the Congress to vote for reforms within the online gambling regulations, that may have a negative effect on the industry.
2 yrs ago, there were speculations that bulk leading Senator Harry Reid and minority Senate Whip Jon Kyl were pressing on for a ban on online gambling having an exception of poker. This notion didn’t become reality, and ended up being primarily circulated during casual conversations. The PPA then supported any laws that could assist the legalization of on the web gambling, and poker in particular.
At current, many online gambling categories are connected together and cannot succeed separately. Currently, poker constitutes up to 20% for the on line gambling profits in New Jersey.
John Pappas explained that in order for poker to thrive, it needs to be in a mix of other online gambling activities, such as video slots and Blackjack, and vice versa. He commented that ‘If you cut off all the games in the U.S. market, investment and interest would shrink considerably.’ He admitted that poker is not likely to flourish on its own.
