Kentucky to Block Online Poker Sites

by AintLuck.com Poker Team

Kentucky, a state known for its wide acceptance of gambling and home of the Kentucky Derby, may be the first state to completely ban access to online poker sites for its residents. The Governor of Kentucky, Steve Beshear, asked a Franklin County Circuit Court Judge to give the state control of 141 gambling website domain names. Beshear is also seeking to restrict Kentuckians access to US friendly poker sites such as Bodoglife.com, Doylesroom.com, and FullTiltPoker.com. This would be the first attempt by one of the US states to completely block online poker by taking over web domains of poker and gambling sites.

“Unlike casinos that operate on land or on riverboats in the United States, these operations pay no tax revenues, provide no jobs and yield no tourism benefits,” Beshear said at a Monday afternoon Capitol press conference. “They are leeches on our communities. The owners and operators of these illegal sites prey on Kentucky citizens, including our youth, and deprive the Commonwealth of millions of dollars in revenue. It’s an underworld wrought with scams and schemes.”

Kentucky is home to the largest horse-racing event in the world, and allows gambling at horse tracks and bingo halls. In addition, Kentucky has a state lottery. Beshear says that blocking Internet poker sites would protect their signature industry.

Justice Secretary J. Michael Brown is asking a court to hand over control of the sites to the Kentucky state government. The domains would then be in total control by the Kentucky government and then blocked so Kentucky citizens could not view the web sites.

It should be noted that legalizing casino gambling in Kentucky was one of Beshear’s main objectives when he ran for Governor last year.
