>> West Virginia Lawmakers Considering Table Games

Poker Might Get Another, Legal, Home

January 8, 2006 (written by Haunted Poker)


Casino operators in West Virginia are making a push at legalizing table games in West Virginia. Currently, the state only allows video-simulated games and slot machines in its borders. Lawmakers will probably add table games, including poker of course, to the repertoire because of potential employment and tax losses to neighboring states like Pennsylvania who plan to expand their casino operations.


I don't live in West Virginia, or know anyone else who does for that matter, but it's always nice to see a small victory for poker over the gambling-phobic legislators in the United States. What's even stranger is the law that some states still go by - slots and video games only? What's the big deal? If you're going to legalize any form of gaming do it right and allow poker, a skill game, into the mix.
