I didn't get to watch it as closely as I'd liked to have.
But from what I gathered, I think there is one person who is responsible for making it impossible to deposit through the banks.

The US could well be on the way to regulating online gambling. The legislation is there, and seems to be picking up support to fully legalize online gambling in the US. It's amazing to hear the amount of taxes that would have been generated for the states if they did regulate it.

The feds in the US even had a chance to go after oversees online gambling sites when they had pavilions at a convention and chose not to go after them there. Even the UK has offered to send the taxes that should be due the US for online gambling.

The US will hopefully be getting this regulated fully soon.

This is most of what I took from the show. Like I said, I couldn't watch it too close, so I'd like to hear if others heard some stuff differently, or is there anything I missed.

No, I don't think that was it. I think it was on CNN, or MSNBC.. whoever does the 60 minutes show.
