California Poker Players

The California bill to legalize online poker is not exactly looking “player-friendly”.

Senator Lou Correa, who is sponsoring the bill and has the support of many native Indian tribes in the state, has made a few amendments, one of which is asset forfeiture. 

In other words, any poker player living in the state of California caught patronizing an “unlicensed” and “unregulated” online poker room, will be subject to having their homes seized.

Late last month, Playtech forged a relationship that would allow it to be among the first licensed online poker ventures in the state.

Full Tilt Poker probably will not be. 


"California Senator Lou Correa has made a number of amendments to his online gaming bill ahead of Friday’s policy committee deadline, according to reports in the Sunshine State’s political newspaper Capitol Weekly. According to the publication, the latest amendments allow more types of company to offer poker, including existing card rooms and gaming tribes, while also introducing the risk of forfeiture of assets for those “operating or playing on an unauthorised website.”
