PokerStars Blocks Play Money Games In Washington State

*** USPoker requested comment from PokerStars on the matter this week and received the following statement from a company spokesperson:

 

“On Thursday, March 29, 2018, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that, under Washington State law, free-to-play games violate state gambling regulations. As a result, The Stars Group is immediately taking actions to block play related to social gaming from Washington State. We are reviewing the rulings and ensuring that our activities are in line with state regulations. We are hopeful the law will be clarified and that when it is, we will be able to reinstate all Washington players at their current status.”

 

The statement falls in line with the jurisdiction review policy on the PokerStars website. Click here to read more.
