|The proposed bill to restrict or ban Internet gambling in the US is likely to remain unfulfilled during the next congressional session, whilst law makers concentrate on more pressing issues around the budget.|
By 2010, the internet gambling market is expected to grow to a massive $18.4 billion, sixty times what it was in 1996 when restrictions were proposed.
Unclear laws and the absence of a consensus in the house continue to make restrictions difficult to pass, but experts say the issue is unlikely to drop. However, Congress is likely to pass laws to regulate the industry, headed by Senator Jon Kyl who has shown lasting commitment to the cause.
However, British law-makers are currently trying to regulate the industry with little success and many think Congress will also be unable to complete the proposed regulation.
