MN Gamblers still in to win

gamblingIn April, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) Alcohol and Gambling Enforcement Division (AGED) announced that it had served written notice to 11 national and regional telephone and Internet service providers instructing them to prohibit access of all Minnesota-based computers to nearly 200 online gambling websites.

As of May, none had responded.

So I wasn’t super surprised to read in MinnPost today that that the DPS is backing off the request. I guess this was a gamble that didn’t pan out for them.
