Title: UK - Pub poker boom forces crackdown
Post by Legalise Poker on Oct 21st, 2006, 1:53pm

Poker players are increasingly being lured into illegal high-stakes games in pubs and clubs, the government's gambling watchdog fears.

The Gambling Commission is launching a crackdown amid fears criminals are attempting to cash-in on the internet-driven boom in poker.

Landlords have been warned they could lose their licence if they allow poker to be played on their premises.

It comes amid US moves to rein in the booming online gambling market.

The US House of Representatives has backed a bill limiting internet gaming by making it illegal for US-based banks and credit card firms to make payments to online gambling sites.
