Why is money laundering an issue?

I would like to know why money laundering is an issue for some states. I mean so many won't allow online gambling in the state but they have online lottery sites where you can in essence gamble.

It irritates me that this happens. If they can take your money and allow you to win why can't they figure out how to regulate online casinos. Also there are many landbased casinos in my state and it would be awesome if I could play from home.

Re: Why is money laundering an issue?

Money laundering is when money is made to look like it came from a legal source when in reality it came from things like drug sales etc.

So that being said, how can money laundering occur when it comes to online gambling? Or for that matter from any type of gambling when you may end up losing more than you would win?

Regulation of online gambling might be a little difficult but it can be done. And it is said that other countries don't let our country know what was won but there should be a way of tracking all wins.
