Basic Social Gambling Guidelines

Let us briefly define the guidelines of a “home poker” or “social gambling” experience:

1. The host, or home owner, may not receive economic gain for hosting the game; only from personal winnings therein.
2. There can be no advantage to one player over another. All must have an equal opportunity to win.
3. The poker game must occur in a private setting, like within the home, or a private social club.

Arkansas strictly prohibits any form of gambling on card games, regardless of the location or value to one or more players, or the host. The law states: “If any person shall be guilty of betting any money or any valuable thing on any game of brag, bluff, poker, seven-up, three-up, twenty-one, vingt-et-un, thirteen cards, the odd trick, forty-five, whist, or at any other game at cards, known by any name now known to the law, or with any other or new name or without any name, he shall, on conviction be fined in any sum not less than ten dollars ($10.00) nor more than twenty-five dollars ($25.00).”

Laura asks…

Just heard on the news the US gov’t is siezing funds of US online poker players? Anyone know about this?

admin answers:

From the Wall Street Journal, the list of payment processor accounts siezed includes

Full Tilt Poker
Poker Stars
Ulitmate Bet
Absolute poker

NO player accounts have been grabbed, only the payment processors, so any payouts in process will not be completed. The sites claim they will reimburse the player accounts for any money lost.
