Hello, I have received conflicting information on if I can play on ACR as a Maryland resident. On the site it says that I am not allowed, but when I asked in the live chat, the operator stated that ACR would not block me from playing. They also said that I could deposit, and process withdraws from ACR with no problems or possibility of my account or bankroll being frozen. He also recommended that I deposit and withdraw with Bitcoin. If this is true, why do they state in their EULA that we are banned? Why am I allowed to deposit in the cashier?
I really want to play on ACR, as they have a bigger population than Betonline, and I really want to use the ACR Rakeback program. Betonline is very barebones, and it is not very populated. If I want to have poker become a bigger part of my life, I feel as if rakeback is needed to be successful, so I'm really bummed about it all, and I just want this to be cleared up. My intuition says that ACR would "let" me deposit any amount of money, but the second I would withdraw, they would bring up their EULA, and freeze my account, taking all of my funds as forfeit.

I spoke to a second ACR rep, and they also explicitly said that I could play on ACR, directly conflicting with their EULA, and when I brought up the EULA, they stated that it didn't matter, and that the EULA was just a legal formality. I have the sinking common sense, though, that they would simply let me deposit and play, and then "conveniently" freeze my account when I withdraw.
