I wonder if you can set up an offshore bank account with an offshore Visa or MasterCard, can you use that credit card to gamble offshore, too?  Then take the money, put in the offshore account, and access it through your offshore ATM card.  It is nearly impossible to regulate the Internet.  That is what has the government so upset.

    The 7-11 stores will not allow credit cards to be used for lottery purchases.  They have signs up stating that.  I don't know about other places. 

     

     

    Thanks CD,

     

    I never tried to purchase lottery tickets with a credit card, so really I don't know who and who would not allow it. I figure if I do not have cash in my pocket to buy my tickets then I should not be purchasing them LOL!

      Good Question but not a subject that I would know about! I have a hunch though it could be done!

        the main question here is how much longer are we going to be able to bet the way we are betting online before it ends up being changed.hopefully it won't happen.....

          I just love how the government and banks make it so you can't spend your own money they way you want.

                I'm shocked more people weren't upset that it's the same felony to have child porn as it is to bet on a lottery online now in WA state. If it can happen here than just wait. If you ask me our government has a very sick set of priorities.

                      Even if this bill becomes law, there's just no way to stop internet gaming.

                      As long as there are offshore e-wallets like Click2Pay, there shouldn't be a problem.

                      The penalties for doing this are just going to drown the legal system.

                      It's going to be a can of worms for the government. imo.

                            I doubt there will be passage. But I think that if they can regulate it, then it might be more likely to pass.
