Gross, PLAYING online is NOT illegal, except in just 2-3 States in the USA.
What was made illegal by the federal law, UIGEA or whatever it's called, was the electronic transfer of money from US banks. So for people that have money on there already, or put it on by legal means, it is not illegal.
Leaner, there ARE 2-3 states in the USA where it actually IS illegal to play online poker. I think it was Illinois
, Washington, and Louisiana, but you can look it up online.
There were then another few states, 7-8, where it might be illegal and different legal opinions varied and it had not been clearly defined or tested in court. But it is legal in the vast majority of states.
