Apr 07, 2015 - Nevada & Delaware launch online poker network

Nevada and Delaware formally launched their online poker network Wednesday, connecting players between the two states.

A Multi-State Poker Network was agreed upon in February 2014 by the states’ two governors in which players from Nevada and Delaware could share poker tables and tournaments. The idea was to increase the number of players online.

Apr 02, 2015 - White House Petition Calls For Defeat Of Proposed Online Poker Ban

A proposed ban on some forms of online gaming faces long odds in Congress, but you should still take the threat seriously. A petition to protect and preserve regulated online poker has appeared on, and it’s seeking 100,000 signatures within the next month.

Feb 26, 2015 - Pennsylvania Online Poker Bill Introduced

The state of Pennsylvania has before flirted with legislation that would allow casinos already in the state to offer gambling on the Internet to those physically within Pennsylvania’s borders, and on Wednesday this year saw the state’s latest attempt.

State Rep. John Payne introduced House Bill 649. No text has yet been made available online, but the proposal sounds very similar to past efforts and online gaming proposals that other U.S. states have been discussing as well. Payne’s bill would set a 14-percent tax on Internet gaming operators, in addition to charging them a $5 million license fee. The bill would apparently preclude small business owners from starting their own online gaming business. Online gaming is designed for big business.

January 12, 2015 - Washington State Eyes Legalizing Online Poker

Even though the state of Washington has passed legislation that made playing online poker a crime punishable by jail (the only U.S. state to do so), in 2015 lawmakers there are going to look at getting rid of the draconian rules and actually legalizing the activity.  It would be a historic reversal of such an extreme position.

Late last week, House Bill 1114 was introduced into the legislature by Rep. Sherry Appleton, a Democrat. Right now, people in Washington state can play poker in card rooms and tribal casinos that have been OK’ed by the state for running the games.
