    For all you Washingtonians out there, bad news, I'm afraid. My apologies if this is a dupe thread.

    Internet Gambling Still Illegal in Washington

    Reports that the Washington State legislative branches have passed a bill amending the state's anti-online gaming laws are false, the Governor's office said today.

    "It didn't pass through the legislature," said John Lane, the Executive Policy Advisor for Washington Governor Christine Gregoire.

    The Washington State legislature posted results for HB 1243, prompting media outlets to report that the bill had passed and was on its way to the Governor's office. The results were actually the votes for HB 1343, a Motor Vehicle Registration bill. An error occurred during the posting, according the Washington State Legislative Hotline.

    Not that I am aware of. I am guessing it would make the news and hit the forums pretty quick if or when it does happen lol! :eek: Frankly Im pretty much weaned off online gaming now, up until a couple of weeks ago I thought it would be fun to try it again but then it hit me, it just aint gonna happen! Pogo it is now and the forums I use just to keep up on the industry. Im only 15 min from 3 casinos..can scratch my itch with those if I need to. It's just sad that this course was not my choice. THAT sucks the most!
