    Utah has become the second state in the US to specifically make Internet gambling illegal. The first state is Hawaii. State Representative Stephen Sandstrom the House Bill 108 to Utah's lawmakers back in January and last week it passed. It was designed to ensure an opt-out for the state should online poker and casino games become legalized on the state front.Out of 27 members, only 2 voted against the bill.  Without courageous leadership to block Internet gaming, Utah could see Indian casinos popping up statewide in just a few years, he said.   Utah is only one of two states that prohibit any form of gambling, Hawaii being the other. Unfortunately, this could change soon because Hawaii is currently considering legalizing gaming leaving Utah to fight the principled fight against legalized gambling on its own. <a href="http://record.bettingpartners.com/_nprRGJDdVO4oaUXVNxWw92Nd7ZgqdRLk/1/" title="Bovada">Bovada</a> informed its Utah customers they will no longer be able to gamble with the company online.
