The American Gaming Association estimates that $3.8 billion was wagered on the most recent NFL Super Bowl contest.  That is an estimated 38 times the amount wagered through regulated channels.
Gerald Aubin, executive director of the Rhode Island Lottery, said Twin River must get approval from his agency to add any games, including poker. While no formal request has been submitted, there have been ongoing discussions between the two sides about the possibility, he said.    “The Lottery is open to this request and, if approved, would work with Twin River to ensure the proper implementation and management of the game, as we do with all other offerings at the Casino,” Aubin told WPRI.com in an email.
The measure by Rep. Jason Chaffetz would roll back a Department of Justice opinion made public in December 2011 that held the Wire Act of 1961, the law that prohibits transmitting wagers, applies only to sports and not to other forms of gambling.
