Going to California?

Online gaming legislation has to eventually get there

by , Jan 14, 2014 | 6:50 am

PokerStars, the biggest most legitimate online poker site in the world, which got that way by thumbing its nose at the US government for their stupid laws, has gotten the big X in Nevada, and in New Jersey … so where to next?

The h/t for finding this goes to Rich Muny via Google+, which I think may be a first such link ever for Pokerati. Ahhh, technology and cookies!
