“A Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) study revealed that the United States has the potential to collect at least $8.7 billion and up to $17.6 billion in the next 10 years if it would tax and regulate online gambling, including poker. And those figures don’t include potential sports wagers.”

Poker guilty plea leads to absolute discharge (Winnipeg Sun, 02/08/08)
“The very first person to plead guilty in relation to last May’s poker busts in Winnipeg did so this morning, and as punishment he got absolutely nothing. Neil Faderon, 27, was granted an absolute discharge by Judge Rocky Pollack this morning after Faderon pleaded guilty to being found in a common gaming house. The ruling means Faderon will receive no sentence and no record, although if he gets back into legal trouble within a year the discharge may be mentioned in court.”
