    VERMONT ATTORNEY GENERAL SAY"S DFS IS ILLEGAL GAMBLING

    Vermont AG’s criminal division chief John Treadwell told a state Senate committee that the AG’s office was of the opinion that DFS activities “fall within the coverage of Vermont’s gambling statutes.”

    Treadwell urged the state Senate Economic Development, Housing and General Affairs Committee not to approve Sen. Kevin Mullin’s S 223, which seeks to regulate and establish certain consumer protections on the DFS sector.

    Treadwell said the AG’s office was open to participating in an examination of the state’s gaming laws, which ban wagering on games of skill or chance. But Treadwell said S 223 “takes one variety of illegal, for-profit gambling and makes it legal without any consideration for why this particular one is being chosen and others are not.”

    Following the hearing, Treadwell told Reuters that DFS shouldn’t be singled out for special treatment, as “exalting one version of gambling above others does not seem appropriate.”

    Challenged by Mullin as to why the AG’s office had not launched prosecutions of DFS operators or the thousands of Vermont DFS players, Treadwell said gambling had “not been an enforcement priority”
    for the state’s legal authorities.

    Vermont joins New York, Illinois and Nevada on the list of state attorneys general who have recently declared that DFS is gambling. So far, only New York AG Eric Schneiderman has taken this opinion to the
    criminal complaint level but the odds are against Schneiderman remaining a solo act for too much longer.

    MARYLAND AG BELIEVES LEGAL DFS REQUIRES VOTER REFERENDUM
    Friday also saw the Maryland Attorney General’s office throw shade at DFS. Assistant AG Katherine Rose and Chief Counsel Adam Snyder penned a joint letter to state Senate President Mike Miller
    informing him of their opinion that while a 2012 state law had authorized season-long fantasy activity, the daily variety was on sketchier legal footing.

    It seems to be such a big hassle to try to play online games of chance for Americans. I did some research on the matter, and found that they are screwed, except if they are very, very creative... Like
    - Use Tor / VPN
    - Pay with bitcoins / skrill / other alternative payment.

    This means that the average US player will simply NOT be able to play, and the average casino operator has to put aside, 300M people.

    Too bad, so proud to be Brit.
