Gambling, once widely outlawed, is today a regulated, taxed activity that is legal in some form in all but two states. State governments have the main responsibility for overseeing gambling, but Congress historically has played a significant role in shaping the industry. Congressional actions include 1960s-era anti-racketeering laws, a 1988 statute setting policy for Indian gaming, and a 1992 law banning state involvement in sports betting. This book examines remote gaming and the gambling industry, wherein states and tribes are using technological innovations, including the Internet and advances in computing and telecommunications to transform the ways in which gambling activity takes place in the United States.
