Prohibition on Unlawful Funding of Internet Gambling
The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA / Reg GG) prohibits any person engaged in the business of betting or wagering (as defined in the Act) from knowingly accepting payments in connection with the participation of another person in unlawful internet gambling.
As defined in Regulation GG, unlawful internet gambling means to “place, receive or otherwise knowingly transmit a bet or wager by any means which involves the use, at least in part, of the internet where such bet or wager is unlawful under any applicable federal or state law in the State in which the bet or wager is initiated, received or otherwise made”.
