    Online Poker in Washington State - still banned

    When are US states going to learn that they’re sitting on a cash cow when it comes to online gambling, if they were to simply regulate and tax winnings? A Washington state appellate court judge ruled against Lee Rousso, a Washington lawyer, in his bid to overturn a state law which was passed shortly after the UIGEA in 2006 that bans all forms of online gambling.
