DOJ Reverses Opinion on Legality of Online Lotteries/Gambling

January 18, 2019

This week, the Department of Justice (DOJ) issued a revised opinion effectively reversing a December 2011 opinion that concluded that the federal Wire Act—the law that prohibits the interstate transmission of all bets or wagers over wires—applied only to sports wagering (and not to online lotteries or other gambling). The 2011 opinion overturned 50 years of interpretation, and some believed it went against congressional intent that the Wire Act applies to all forms of gambling.
