ONLINE POKER IN CALIFORNIA

For poker players residing in California there is currently limited choice when it comes to playing online poker. Over the last few years the number of online poker rooms accepting players from the US and California has diminished, including some high profile sites such as Full Tilt going under following the events of Black Friday.

LEGAL ONLINE POKER ROOMS IN CALIFORNIA

Whether online poker is legal in California is currently a grey area. Whilst most online poker rooms do not accept players from California, there are still a few reputable sites that do. The most important factor for poker players from California is that nobody has even been prosecuted for playing online poker, all the risk is with the poker room corporations.

ONLINE POKER SITES ACCEPTING USA PLAYERS

The market for online poker in the USA is rather confusing due to current legislation. The problem is that in the current climate of online poker, the US government is not receiving any taxation on company profits or from the players who play online poker. Therefore it is likely that the US government will introduce a state-by-state policy for online poker sites accepting USA players, where by only players from that particular state can play against others from that state, and the profits from the games will be heavily taxed.

California poker players can expect this form on legal online poker to be introduced during 2012/2013.
