One of the fastest growing activities in America is playing poker1, often for money online. Now a new law targets Internet casinos and the cash they pay out, as CBS news correspondent Jim Acosta tells us: the winners are not happy.

Internet poker player Spencer Smith spends two hours a day at the casino on his couch for a good reason.

I've done well. It got me through college.

It got you through college?

Yeah.

But for Smith and the other ten million online gamblers, all bets may be off. Legislation that could pull the plug on thousands of Internet casinos sites is now attached to the new port security bill that's expected to be signed into law today. (Play poker, online…) The measure could topple a 12-billon-dollar-a-year juggernaut that gives amateurs a taste of the action on those wildly popular TV poker tournaments. Conservative groups say the sites prey2 on gambling3 addicts4, operating offshore5 under the radar6 of law enforcement.

...necessary because of the damage that we've seen, iee, gambling and especially anonymous7 gambling on the Internet.

The new law won't make it a crime to play poker online. Instead, it will block banks from processing gambling winnings, which is why droves of players are now cashing in their virtual chips.

I pulled out of a party poker and stopped playing immediately.

While Jeff Markley, with the gambling trade magazine Bluff8, has closed one of his online poker accounts, he says players are plotting ways to move their winnings through third-party websites.

They are never going to be able to stop the means of funding gambling accounts.

Industry observers fear many Internet gamblers will simply turn to black market on-line casinos.

The bad thing about the law is that it really drives out the operators who would be mo, the most reputable.

For this new law to work, the government would have to ante up the money to police online gambling. Until that happens, laptop aces9 like Spencer Smith are nowhere near ready to fold.

Some poker players also complain/ the new law protects other forms of gambling like horse racing10 and lotteries11.
