+ - Mass. Gambling Bill Won't Criminalize Online Poker->

Submitted by

travdaddy writes "As reported on Slashdot only about a week ago, a passage of a Massachusetts Gambling Bill would criminalize online poker. That passage has been stricken due to the help of a grass-roots organization called the Poker Players Alliance. It "quickly got the message to all of its Massachusetts members—around 25,000 people-- and over 1,000,000 nationwide to make their voices heard; apparently lawmakers were listening since the language making online poker illegal –and online gaming in general-- was taken out of the legislation." Another Massachusetts bill may even "take [poker] completely out of the gambling genre" and make it legislated as a game of skill."
