If you're in the small percentage of people that have been scammed or colluded against at the virtual poker table then a new proposed change in the law should have you fist pumping for joy.
According to a recent report from the House of Lords, the punishment for anyone caught cheating in the online arena when it comes to gambling could faces up to 10 years in prison. The news came after a discussion between the Lords over the problem of match-fixing and online gambling, with former Minister for Sport Lord Moynihan suggesting that there should be tougher penalties imposed upon those who are caught “cheating at gambling”.Lord Moynihan's suggestion came after consultation with British sports betting authorities and he believes that all forms of online cheating, include any which takes place in the poker world, should punishable by a lengthy prison sentence.If the new amendment makes it into law then it could not only signal a change in fortunes for poker cheaters in the UK but across the world. Indeed, with poker sites now keener than ever to stamp out cybercrime, it could be the push some of them need to redefine their policies against those who try to beat the system in an unfair way.
