This paper provides an overview of Internet gambling in order to determine some of problems it has created now that consumers can gamble in their own homes without physically even going to a real casino. An analysis of what effects the proliferation of advertising for online gambling sites may have on the nation's youth is followed by a discussion as to whether there is sufficient information being presented on the possible pitfalls of gambling as compared to the information being presented on substance abuse and sex. A summary of the research and salient findings is provided in the conclusion.

Review and Discussion
The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006
Current and Future Trends

From the Paper:

"The Act also permits federal regulators to exempt certain types of online transactions that would be impractical to require identification and blocking; for example, it would be enormous difficult to apply these procedures to paper checks: "Banks have no way now of reading who the payee is on paper checks and cannot be expected to go into that business. Banks tried to defeat this bill, not because they cared about patrons' privacy, but because they knew that it would cost them billions of dollars to set up systems to read paper checks" (Rose 3). All of the literature reviewed concerning the Act indicated that because of its recentness, its ultimate impact remains unclear, particularly in view of the fact that millions of Americans continue to apparently break the law to some extent by gambling online in one form or another, and these issues are discussed further below. "
