Revised Mass. Gambling Bill Won’t Criminalize Online Poker

travdaddy writes “As reported on Slashdot only about a week ago, a passage of a gambling bill in Massachusetts would have criminalized 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.”
