Video Gaming Circumvents US Anti-Gambling Laws

November 25, 2008

A new online betting site has been launched in the United States that gives video gaming fans the opportunity to play online and bet against each other, legally. The US based company, Bringlt LLC has launched the site in such a way that it circumvents the anti-gambling laws in the United States. A distinction is made between video gaming and online gambling in UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act) and their compliant business model is what enables video gamers to take their gaming to a whole new level. However, even so, players from nine states in the US will be blocked from using the site. Legal restrictions prevent players from Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Montana, Tennessee and Vermont to gamble through the Bringlt site.

Bringlt online video gamers can play head-to-head, in groups or in tournaments – all for real money. Playing through Bringlt LLC will allow players to play any game that supports online play or head-to-head competition. This includes popular games such as Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock, Madden NFL 2009, Halo 3, Mario Kart, Gears of War 2, Rock Band 2, Super Smash Bros Brawl and FIFA 2009. It supports games for Nintendo Wii, Playstation 2, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. Bringlt does not expect this to be the limit of what they offer – they plan to introduce more games with the help of feedback from their player community.

Bringlt does not only provide the games. It also features neutral arbitration if necessary. A player friendly innovation on its site is a self-regulating player feedback system which allows players to view an opponent's standing before they challenge them to or accept a game.

Bringlt aims to cater for seasoned players as well as those who are simply looking for a bit of fun. The stakes for games vary dramatically – from as little as $1 to as high as $100,000 per game – so all players can find a game that suits them. All entry fees are held in an escrow account until a winner is verified and the funds are then released to their account. Bringlt collects a 10% rake for games before the winner is paid.

Woody Levin, the Bringlt CEO and founder claims that Bringlt is going to transform video gaming as they are now giving video gamers the much coveted opportunity to play competitively online for real money, in a legal framework.
