Gambling is the world's third-largest industry, and the Web has made it more global than ever. One in twenty Americans gamble online, an illegal activity under the Wire Act which forbids interstate bookmaking over phone lines. This program looks at the explosive proliferation of Internet gaming and how America-its people and its government-are reacting to it. To present an overview of gambling in the electronic era, the video canvasses many perspectives, from Web bookmaker Victor Chandler to casino owner and publisher Larry Flynt; from Congressional opponents of Internet gambling, such as John Goodlatte, John Wolf, and Senator Jon Kyle, to Congressman Ron Paul, who opposes regulation of the Web.
