ILLINOIS ONLINE GAMBLING OFF THE TABLE FOR NOW (Update)
Difficulty in reaching a consensus on land gambling expansion with the Illinois Thoroughbred Horsemens Association has resulted in Apuestas Breeders Cup state legislators stripping an internet gambling legalisation provision from SB1739 in order to secure agreement.
It is not the first time that politicians in the state have initiated online gambling legalisation proposals, but all have fallen by the wayside.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that the current drive for legalisation has not been entirely abandoned, however, and that an internet gambling legalisation proposal is still possible as a stand-alone bill to be introduced in the state Senate soon.
Given the clout of the horseracing faction, which can take online wagers on its races thanks to carve-outs in US federal law, such a move will likely also be strongly opposed.
FERTITTA CLOSING IN ON INTERNET POKER

By working with CAMS we are able to reduce our internal programming costs, centralise many of our daily operating functions and at the same time reduce nearly 30 percent of our upfront and ongoing monthly costs from the same vendors we intended to work with.

CAMS supports the creation of a safe and secure payment environment for casinos, lotteries, brands and players and helps meet or exceed regulatory and compliance requirements," said Matthew Katz, chief executive for CAMS.
