01 FebPlayPokerOnline.Com Expands Legal Online Poker Guide
Players looking to navigate the often-murky waters of online poker now have an additional tool, as PlayPokerOnline.com released an updated guide to the legal status of online poker worldwide.
Online poker is a subject of conversation across the globe, with much of the chatter dedicated to the always-shifting legal status of the game. Some countries have chosen to regulate, some to ban and some to ignore the issue – at least for now.
That leaves people who are interested in online poker real money play in somewhat of a difficult spot. With so much change happening so quickly, it can be difficult to sort out the current status of an individual player’s jurisdiction, especially if the player is unfamiliar with the online poker industry.
Making matters more complicated is the fact that most governments treat players and operators much differently, meaning that playing online poker might be perfectly fine in some places where operating an online poker room would not be. Trying to parse these fine distinctions can be a frustrating task, to say the least.
The answer to that quandary is provided by PlayPokerOnline.com, who recently updated their comprehensive guide to the legal status of online poker across several jurisdictions. While all players are certainly advised to do independent research before playing poker online for real money, the 2012 Legal Online Poker guide is a great starting point for understanding the basics of a particular player’s situation.
Online poker will no doubt continue to exist in a somewhat ambiguous environment for years to come as a patchwork of local and regional governments produce their own independent solution to the issue. While that confusion is likely to put off many who might otherwise be interested in playing online, at least some will no doubt find the answers they’re looking for with this updated guide from PlayPokerOnline.com.
