This is a discussion on Legality of playing online poker in the U.S. within the online poker forums, in the Online Poker section; Hi everyone,
I am new to the realm of ONLINE poker.
Through my research, I have seen some contradictory and vague information in regards to the legality
As far as I know that playing online poker in the United States is prohibited. But what will it be if they find out, I do not own the information. But I wish you that later you would be allowed online poker.
re: Poker & Legality of playing online poker in the U.S.
Currently its a state issue. Federally its frowned upon but instead of going after the players they go after banks which is why it is difficult for US players to deposit with their credit card, unlike prior to 2011. This documentary though an hour long gives a good recount of online poker from it's inception in the early 90s to about 2016 or so.
