Restricting gambling on the internet

Kevin V. Di Gregory, US Deputy Assistant Attorney General, Department of Justice, testified before the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on June 9, 1999 regarding Internet Gambling and Indian Gaming. His testimony addressed two issues: (1) the Department of Justice's support of efforts to amend federal gambling statutes to ensure that these gambling activities made possible by the Internet are prohibited; and (2) the Department's belief that any law prohibiting Internet gambling should not conflict with the rights or privileges of Indian tribes, both as sovereigns and under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA).

In New York, USA, in 1999, twenty-one owners, managers and employees of Internet sports betting companies were charged in Manhattan federal court with conspiracy to transmit bets and wagers on sporting events via the Internet and telephones.
