You posted the exact same thing, word for word, in the other thread.
Bovada Pulls Out of Nevada and Delaware But not on time, they still got a lot of Nevadans knocked up, I just hope they will continue to send the support checks.
Did Washingtonians have to cash out and cease playing altogether? I realize the law in Washington is more strict.
While reading that article. I noticed that Bobada and Bodogs are not connected. Was I correct in assuming this?
EDIT: Maybe someone should merge these threads? I've had a couple whiskeys and just realized after posting that this is the duplicate thread.
What I heard, though, was that the reason they pulled out of WA is that it is a felony to gamble online there. AFAIK, it's not a felony in the other states. In fact, in NJ, I know that it's illegal to gamble on unregulated websites - but thus far have been unable to find a punishment (not a lawyer, but I went through that section of the law about a year ago. Maybe there's been updates to it but IDK.)
Furthermore, my understanding of the situation is that "illegal" in this context means that the state will not help you if you're ripped off. So it's a weird situation as far as NJ goes, and I don't think there's any good reason to think that my funds aren't safe - or that the state will expend resources to take any further action against Bovada (they sent a letter to WPN at very least asking them to stop.)
Either way I won't stop playing on these sites because then I'd have to get a job (I'm in college, so the income I make playing online poker is better than I would at another - far more boring and less flexible - job.) Not to mention Bovada has the best tournament schedule available to the US market, hands down.
