Internet Gambling in Arizona Heats Up

From the Prescott Daily Courier.

Online gambling on horse races has a special exception from the federal law through the Interstate Horseracing Act, but many states outlaw it.

Arizona is the only state that allows horse racing but not online betting on it, said Boomer Wry, Yavapai Downs racing director. And it's the only state in which online horse wagering is a felony, said Jeff Platt, president of the non-profit Horseplayers Association of North America (HANA).

Now simultaneous efforts at the federal and state level seek to legalize both those forms of Internet gambling. Supporters at both levels say the federal and state laws against these forms of Internet gambling are vague anyway.

I agree. Gambling in Arizona is a very profitable business but there are restrictions for doing so.

Arizona is not the only state to allow horse races and not online betting on them. Indiana has two race tracks but does not permit any type of online gambling.
