PPA Passes Around Important Petition
June 24, 2021

The Poker Players Alliance, the leading poker grassroots advocacy group, is asking for help to protect our right to play online poker in the US, by gathering signatures for a new poker petition destined for President Obama's desk.

This important petition, asks Obama to recognize the number one technology issue from his own Citizen's Briefing Book and to support and protect American poker players by both exempting poker from the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act), and by licensing and regulating the game in the US.

This online petition, which is already approaching 50,000 signatures, will be presented to President Obama on July 22nd as part of the PPA's National Poker Week (7/19-7/25) and is gaining momentum, not only from coverage on poker news sites, but from internet poker rooms as well, such as PokerStars.com which is offering players a free entry into a $3,500 freeroll just for signing the free petition.

To sign the PPA petition visit www.pokerpetition.com.
