Maryland the latest state to introduce poker legislation
The movement has caught fire since the recession hit, and states started looking for new ways to generate revenue. States that already offer casino games have gone so far as to bring up the possibility of legalizing and regulating the online poker industry at the state level.
Maryland’s bill, House Bill 608, would allow places that currently hold Video Lottery Licenses to add table games, such as poker, blackjack, roulette, and so on. Unlike Pennsylvania and Delaware, Maryland will let the voters decide the fate of expanded gambling; a referendum will be placed on the November Mid-Term ballot.
As more and more states in the region legalize table games it leaves the other states in a precarious situation; either they follow suit and expand their gambling laws, or they will see lost revenue to neighboring states.
