New Gambling Proposal Would Allow Internet Gaming in State


The latest attempt to expand gambling in the state of Illinois may run into new snags.

 

Governor Pat Quinn has vetoed two previous gaming bills because he says the expansion of casinos and slot machines around the state did not include enough ethical safeguards.

 

The latest attempt to pass the bill tries to address those concerns, but now adds a new wrinkle… allowing people to gamble in the privacy of their own home, over the Internet.

 

Quinn is also skeptical of that idea, and says there needs to be a lot more study about the concept.

 

Only three other states have approved internet gambling.
