DC Lottery abandon plan to host iGaming on high-security network

The DC Lottery’s information technology officials have revealed that they are no longer planning to host their online gambling plan on the high security network of the city – DC-Net.

The DC Lottery’s information technology officials have revealed that they are no longer planning to host their online gambling plan on the high security network of the city – DC-Net. This high-speed network was built after the incidents of September 11th in order to make sure that official communications are not disrupted in case there are other terroristattacks.

 

The original plans ensured that iGaming would be confined to the city borders using a secure connection for wagered games, but DC Attorney General Irvin B said that the authorities have chosen alternative technologies for securing the system. Although the technology chosen is not revealed, Irvin did state that gaming needs to remain confined to the city in Washington to remain lawful.

 

Lottery officials have been working on finding the ideal ways of implementation since iGaming became legal as part of a supplemental budget plan last December.

 

After a series of public meetings to address the concerns related to online gambling, officials stated that they don’t plan to change the main components of iGaming. To keep worrying at a low level, they reduced the number of games planned to debut from six to four, with the remaining two games to be introduced at a later point.
