online gambling heat

Postby Whilke » Fri Jun 09, 2006 2:01 pm

SEATTLE - Gambling is for people who like to take a risk. But as of Wednesday, on-line gambling in our state got quite a bit riskier.

A new state law raises the stakes on online gamblers. Placing your bet online for poker and other games is now a felony - even though the state says it's unlikely it'll go after individual gamblers.

The state is more interested in stopping money laundering, gambling "scams" and preventing kids from playing.

Use a search engine to find an on-line gambling site and you can choose between thousands. At peak hours, it's not unusual for 50,000 people all betting on a poker game on the same Web site.

An online wager used to be a misdemeanor, but now it's a felony.

First time I've been told about that sort option, that's cool. You can keep track of the competition. Wish you could see their hole cards at the tables as well.
