New Developments in California’s Internet Gaming Bill


After months of pressure, on June 4, 2012, California’s online gaming bill (SB 1463) was amended with several key changes.

? Poker Only: The bill is now limited to only legalizing and regulating online poker; the provision whereby the legislature can phase in other games was deleted.

? CGCC Take Over: Application process for licenses will now be handled by the California Gambling Control Commission (CGCC) instead of the California Department of Justice (DOJ). The DOJ will still have some input throughout a license applicant’s investigation.
