White House May Increase Requirements for Online Poker Petitions

US Online GamblingWhite House May Increase Requirements for Online Poker Petitions

US supporters of the legalisation of online poker looking for an outlet for their frustration at their own government have taken to online petitions to the White House. The government website has a section in which petitioners may submit their causes, with enough community support (signatures) on nearly any topic that requires the attention of the government.

One such petition for the legalisation of online poker made its required 5,000 signatures but is still in queue behind other topics such as legalising cannabis.

Message from the White House

While some amount of patience would be expected, the White House may change the amount of signatures required to have a petition go before the President or his administration. The message from the White House is an obvious pre-emptive step against being flooded with petitions. Petitions that meet the signature requirements are guaranteed official responses by the Office of the President.
