Jon,

PartyPoker is the biggest poker site out there. The games are, by all accounts, the juiciest place to make money playing poker. So, from the perspective of availability and profitability, it is a great site.

However, the software is in the lower half of all the sites I have played. And the Customer "Service" is always being insulted on the web sites I read.

There is no reason for you to stop referring people to Party (and making money off their rake). It is the biggest dog in a fast-growing kennel.

See...normally I would have been the cynical (and almost certainly correct) one. But I just got off a cruise ship and being completely relaxed, I must have been hit with a moment of weakness...

Acme,

Thanks for your input. If, "It is the biggest dog in a fast-growing kennel." it's a good reason for investing in rule-breaker stocks, surely it is a good reason to be a promoter of a site.

The kennel is about to get bigger because online gaming is going to move into cellphones. Are any of these companies that offer cellphone gambling public?

While we are on the topic of sin stocks in the cellphone, porn is going cellular too. I wonder if there are any companies in that sector that are public.

again, Acme, thanks for your reply to my earlier post.

Neither do I as of yet, but I am learning.

Sorry to burst your bubble and I'm sure I'm actually not, but online gaming is illegal in the US and unfortunately, likely to remain so.

I know enforcement has been tough to do, but somehow it may happen, just something to think about.

You should do more research before you jump to conclusions about this subject.

Patchdodd,

Are you trying to say that online gaming is legal in the U.S.?

It is not, the only legal online gaming is the intranet in Nevada in the US. These sites that we visit are offshore in some friendly country that does not outlaw this. Also some people, albeit very few have been tried for using online sites, however, I believe not convicted. Nonetheless, as the poster seemed to be a promoter for the site, he/she should make sure he's o.k. legally.

I personally think you can use the sites without much legal difficulty, however, some of the credit card companies are not allowing them as a charge. We all know they've been getting around that. How much more research do you want???

It is legal in almost all states (Nevada is one state where it is clearly NOT legal). You are completely off base if you believe otherwise.

The US Government has tried to enforce the Wire Act, but the courts have pretty much universally ruled against this.

Incorrect.

Well...if you are going to talk about the law, you should start by looking into the case law rather than talk off the top of your head and by the little tidbits of incorrect and/or incomplete information that gets into newspaper and online articles. Since our courts are based on case law precedent, this would be the first place to go. The fact is, internet gambling -- given the current set of laws -- is perfectly legal in most states.

I am 100% sure it's legal ... it's that US banks dont give accounts to online casinos.

I have to believe that if it were illegal, those of us that have been paying taxes on what we make using those off shore sites would have been audited and/or arrested by now.

Totally unsubstantitated logic, but mine nonetheless.
