We all wish to be millionaires and do nothing for it but there are some people who are right now actually putting their best efforts to become multimillionaires. Thousands of professionals and part time poker players are trying their luck to see what their fate has in reserve for them. WSOP or World Series of Poker had started on 27th of May, 2012, in Rio. And since then Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas has become the temple of luck for the poker players. Gambling tables of this place are buzzing with activities these days and it has got the world’s spot light as World Series of Poker is in full swing here. When thousands are devising their poker strategy in Las Vegas, millions of people would be sitting in disappointment, sulking and cursing their fate if the ban on online poker in theUnited States is not lifted or relaxed to some extent.
The ban on online poker was instituted on April 15, 2011 in U.S. and poker lovers called the day “Black Friday”. People who were earning through online poker sites and who were professional online gamers lost their livelihood, and at the same time the employees of the online poker sites had to sit at home. The fact that the number of people who lose money through the online poker game is bigger than the people who earn through it, made the USgovernment put the ban on it. It was also said that online poker game is making students addicted to it as when you are playing online you can play multiple hands at one time and you do not need to leave your home as well. On this poker lover people raised questions about online regulations and taxable revenues.
As most of the online poker companies are based overseas the ultimate loss was suffered by the government only. Last December by softening the ban on poker game the government made it taxable again. Banning could not stop people from gambling but government had surely lost out the revenue and now when it is legalized again USgovernment is also making profits from it. As far as the addiction is concerned, there are more students who are addicted to video games than those who are addicted to online poker. Technology is the culprit and not poker. Latest poker news is that government is considering different aspects of legalizing online poker again and ways to regulated online gambling. Poker lovers in future can try some luck and enjoy the WSOP at their home if they are not there at Rio.
