Betting on horse races has been the only way of legal gambling for residents of 37 states in United States. When legislatures tried to put a stop to gambling by closing down online poker in 2011 and also closing a few popular poker sites, they did not succeed in removing the scourge of gambling from the minds of people. Most regular players went back to play at live casinos in states where it is legal and others waited for reimbursement from 76 bank accounts were shut down by the Justice Dept. Though states like California, New York, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania have requested for legalisation of online poker it has not been accepted by all state representatives.
