California is gearing up to the idea of accepting other forms of internet gambling, including poker, however it seems that California’s Indian tribes have a lot of uncertainty with the recent changes in the definition of the Federal Wire Act.

Howard Dickstein, a specialist on tribal gaming and jurisdictional issues says,“I think most of us assumed that the Wire Act did not apply to intrastate Internet gaming, but this confirms it.”

“And it also provides California with the opportunity apart from what the federal government decides to do with Internet gaming to enter into agreements with other states to increase the market, the liquidity, and viability of state authorized Internet gaming,“ Dickstein said.
