Online Gambling Plan of Columbia

A magazine for online poker called, ‘Poker Player’ reveals some interesting news on online gambling in Columbia. An eminent gambling expert, Professor I Nelson Rose said that he is working along with D.C Lottery to bring about an online gambling plan in for Columbia.  They are trying to develop a system of Instant Ticket Vending Machines in the district. A series of public hearings have been planned to discuss the issue of real money wagers on online poker and other games.

The present gambling laws, allow players above 19 years, to play games with real money. A pending budget that proposed to include online gambling was approved by the District Council, this March. There was a grace period of 30 years, within which Congress didn’t react. This enabled the Columbian citizens to play online games like poker with real money. Internet gambling In Columbia will be restricted to those residing within the district only. D.C Lottery is using advanced technologies to verify locations.

The lottery will make use of demonstrations through the web to introduce online gambling In the District of Columbia. The initial games to be included are poker, bingo and blackjack.  On registering with the gambling sites, players will get credits or points. They can accumulate more points by playing everyday.

Prizes are featured only in the games offered by D.C lottery.  Playing hours are restricted during peak times.  District of Columbia’s initiatives of online gambling have little chances to succeed unless gambling legislations are brought by the American states.
