Lawsuit against VGW’s social casinos in Georgia

A class action lawsuit against virtual gaming company VGW has brought into question the legality of social and sweepstakes gambling websites in Georgia.

In this lawsuit, the player had lost money from various sweepstakes companies but when she asked for gold coins which could only be redeemed into such companies she didn’t get them as they refused all written requests made by her.

VGW is the operator of several social and sweepstake casinos, such as Global Poker, Chumba Casino, and Luckyland Casino, two sectors that have both experienced recent and significant growth. Kennedy’s case relates to legislation that was passed in 2012 that prohibited internet cafés from offering casino-style gambling.  VGW hasn’t addressed the case as of yet.

Though it has undergone numerous modifications since it was first proposed, sports betting legislation is still moving forward in Georgia, and there is still hope that an igaming bill will be passed soon. However, with the continued expansion of sweepstake and social casinos throughout North America, many will undoubtedly be closely monitoring the VGW case and its implications for the industry’s future.
