H.R.2666 – Internet Poker Freedom Act of 2013

If passed, the Internet Poker Freedom Act will require all Internet poker facilities to go through a licensing process in order to be deemed legal operations.  In order to become licensed, an applicant must demonstrate that it maintains appropriate safeguards and mechanisms, including the ability restrict (to a reasonable degree of certainty) that participants are 21-years of age or older, physically located in a jurisdiction that has not prohibited such poker bets at the time they are placed, protected from having their personal information disclosed or disseminated and offered games that are fair and honest, which prevent cheating and the use of cheating devices (including software programs known as “bots”).  Failure to become licensed could result in the individuals associated with such facilities to be fined and/or receive up to five years in prison.  Licenses issued will be valid for five years upon receipt.
