D.C. Repeals Internet Gambling Program

Last year, the District of Columbia seemed to hold all the aces in the high-stakes race among states to offer Internet gambling. Its program, iGaming, was on track to be the first one in the country, and it promised revenue for the district from Texas hold ’em poker, blackjack and bingo. Instead, the Council of the District of Columbia has repealed iGaming over criticism that it had been approved without sufficient public comment or scrutiny.
