in my country (Brazil) online poker is not legalized, the fact that poker is not legalized is very good and advantageous for us Brazilians who avoid paying fees that in some countries are very expensive.

I see a lot of players from brazil. If poker is illegal for you, how do you register in the rooms?

Hello! I am from Russia and we also banned gambling, allowed in gaming areas. But people play cards in underground casinos and machines and so on. I think everywhere people are the same who have money and who wants to play he will play. Big tax in this country got on a plane and plays in another. Generally people will play if even the end of the world will come.

In Greece it's a bit of confused thing, with 24 complanies in a perpetual....."White List" waiting for some kind of official legalization, but it never comes. Most of these companies are small betting companies that don't offer poker at all.

Anyway, pokerstars and Full Tilt are 100% legal because they accepted to tax players in order to provide their product here without problem. But I miss a lot of good CardsChat freerolls in other platforms, mainly European betting companies.

In my country - Poland, online poker is also illegal, although there is a legitimate online casino. A lot of the best Polish poker players left for Malta and live there because online poker is legal are great tax regulations on winnings.

is not legalized, but it is not forbidden ... poker online .... casino is forbidden
Poker in brasil is not considered gambling (jogo de azar) so there's no law preventing poker. The machines are against the law, for example.

Best of Lucky.

Only a couple of sites operate legally in Greece the last 4-5 years. Most people go to semi legal poker clubs or casino now.

In many countries, the same situation .. however, there is a downside, with large wins they may be interested in the source of these funds, then the swing will begin .. perhaps)

Online poker is banned in my state . Misdemeanor charge . 600$ fine. No one has ever been prosecuted under this law. I will take my chances.

Online Poker in argentina is banned too, but if you change your DNS conection can easly enter in some rooms... Its kinda difficutl to enter money because we cant use credit card, but we handle it with "cashiers" or e-wallets (more expensive than cashiers)...
