Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars leave Washington market
The reason behind this withdrawal is the fact that the Supreme Court in Washington has taken on a new online gambling law. With this law it is strictly forbidden for citizens of Washington to gamble of play poker online.
PokerStars has announced that they won’t let any citizen of Washington play on their site anymore,’ thus writes Andrew Feldman in his pokerblog on ESPN.com. ‘Full Tilt Poker announced that they can’t allow players within the Washington state borders to participate in any gambling on their site, but when these players leave the state and gamble outside state borders, they still can gamble on the Full Tilt Poker sites.’
