Brownsfan, Here is more info in the link below. http://www.cardplayer.com/poker-news/blogs/article/887 Here are some highlights if it doesn't work for some reason: "BY: ALLYN JAFFREY SHULMAN " - she is the legal analyst for cardplayer.com and Cardplayer magazine. "There are two different sets of laws by which citizens are all bound; federal laws and state laws. Federally, there is no law making it illegal for a person to play poker online. Period." "In sum, this is a pretty simplistic but accurate answer. There is no federal law making it illegal to play online and the states that have laws, have never enforced them. "
