Another positive step in the move towards the legal acceptance of online poker in the US occurred on Monday thanks to Washington State Representative Paul Harris.
Since 2006 the act of playing poker online in the state was illegal and carried a $10,000 fine and up to five years in prison. However, if the new bill proposed by Harris is accepted, it will mean that any player caught grinding online will only face a Class 3 civil infraction. This reclassification would mean the maximum a player could be fined is $50, something that will certainly come as welcome news to those still enjoying the virtual game within the state.One thing the new bill does make clear, however, is that it only applies to individuals playing for their own entertainment and now for those operating an online site.The step may be a minor one, but when combined with other recent regulatory moves, it’s certainly appears as though the US authorities are warming to online poker.
