(article) U.S. Virgin Islands: Internet Gambling Already Legal

St. John Source reported today about how "internet gambling" is already legal in the territory.

Should be noted that it has actually not been possible to play in the Virgin Islands since about 2 weeks after black friday (for some reason play was still allowed for awhile), although I have recently moved and am unable to check for a current update.

De Jongh Administration Gives Internet Gaming the Green Light

Quote:
The Virgin Islands Casino Control Commission and the Office of the Governor today issued a much anticipated press statement confirming that the “Virgin Islands Internet Gaming and Internet Gambling Act” is legal.

“This marks a turning point in the diversification of our gaming industry from land-based casinos and racinos, to internet gaming and gambling.” The implementation of this Act will fulfill our mission of attracting very successful global internet gaming companies to the Virgin Islands, and encourage new investments to our struggling economy, the governor said.
Quote:
Attorney General Frazer urged caution in implementation to ensure that “the territory utilize systems and programs that would permit only adults to utilize the internet for gaming purposes in jurisdictions where such gaming and gambling are permissible as a matter of law.” Technology already exists to restrict access to internet gambling by location and age. Commission Chair Golden stated “the Commission will comply with all the mandates under the Act to ensure that minors and persons in states where gambling is prohibited cannot access Internet sites licensed in the Virgin Islands.”
Quote:
At a time of unprecedented fiscal crisis, the implementation of Internet Gaming and Gambling will attract gaming related technology companies to the territory, creating new jobs, while transforming St. Croix and the Virgin Islands into a gaming leader in the Caribbean. The newly-constructed Research and Technology Park, the Virgin Islands Next Generation Network project, the Global Crossing Fiber Optic Network, and the presence of other technology companies on St. Croix, places the Territory in a unique position to be an internet gaming leader and e-commerce hub in the region.
Quote:
“The Virgin Islands is open for business and the Virgin Islands Casino Control Commission will begin to implement the act immediately,” the governor and the commissioner said today.

update on if any sites are working in the usvi? Seems strange that this was passed yet it's not a part of New Jersey Delaware Nevada?
