Online Poker in Limbo as DOJ Extends Compliance Deadline

The uncertainty surrounding the future of online poker in the United States remains for the foreseeable futures thanks to the recent 1961 Wire Act opinion reversal by the United States Department of Justice. Initially, the DOJ set the deadline for compliance with the revised opinion to April 15 but this has recently changed with the department now requiring all of the online gaming operators to tweak adjust appropriately by June 14 in order to be in compliance with the new law.
