The paper explains the problems associated with online gambling and examines the legislation of various states that have attempted to limit or eliminate Internet gaming. The paper explores the ethical theories of Bentham, Mill and Kant and shows how although online gambling might be justified on the basis of the utilitarianism of Bentham, it is certainly not justified by the utilitarianism of Mill and Kant's categorical imperative. The paper contends that there must be some action to outlaw online gambling in order to benefit society and protect those most vulnerable.
