raising big or small still a gambling.. but idiort is right,, even it's illegal or legal many people still want to play... And soccer is now more popular than poker... But if you ask me i still prefer to play both...

Nope it is not. As you guys know, I've been searching around for the answer about online poker for a loooong time.

I now have the pleasure of having a Deputy Public Prosecutor as a friend and he told me that poker online is STRICTLY ILLEGAL. I started the whole "but how come the common gaming house act and betting act applies to online casinos?" and he simply said, "its not just those two acts which apply to this situation."

I came clean with him anyway and I told him that I play poker online all the time. He said even though its illegal, its very difficult to get caught and the only way you can get caught is IF SOMEONE REPORTS it. Therefore, keep it hush hush, avoid snitches and you'll be fine.

Gambling is something which is illegal in many parts of world. It gives pleasure to millions even though it might be illegal in there respective country even I am one of them. It gives me tremendous pleasure when I play live or online. I never miss any opportunity when ever I got a chance to try my luck.
