Wasted Aces Poker
Though legalized online gaming in not approved federally or in Nevada, it hasn’t stopped some of Las Vegas’ biggest players to start lining up partners.
This means nothing to the estimated 100 million online poker players — including an estimated 50 million in the U.S. — right now, but it could be huge for online and brick-and-mortar poker going forward.
Federally approving and taxing online poker is not something poker players are against. In fact, the Poker Players Alliance (PPA) would settle for just approving it in Nevada
Legalized and taxed online poker is inevitable. In a country that allows people to wager on horse and dog races across state lines, forbidding legalized online poker is hypocritical at best and ludicrous at worst.
