Just curious to know because different states have a different laws.
I've done it with FT 2-3 times to my Georgia account.
Unless you're in one of the half-dozen or so states that outlaw online poker/gambling explicitly, then I highly doubt state laws will even come into play and matter at all. Even with those states it probably works -- some poker sites
refuse to allow players from those states, while others still do and I expect they still cash out (otherwise why would they play if they know they can't). Banking transactions don't go through any sort of state or federal review before the fact. It's up to the bank to recognize and enforce "illegal" transactions. Some may cooperate with the authorities, but only to the point they feel they have to -- we and the poker sites are their customers and they'd rather make money on handling our money. Until the authorities come in with a warrant/subpoena as part of an investigation, I don't think banks will be volunteering squat.
