Weekly Update from Rich Muny, VP of Player Relations

With 2013 heating up at the state level for poker in all its forms (online, bricks-and-mortar, charitable, etc.), we need to make sure lawmakers are hearing from all of us – especially the newly elected politicians.

Will you take a moment now to send them these all-new, fully editable, prewritten poker letters? Simply click the buttons below (or here). In less than thirty seconds, you can send these emails directly to the inboxes of all your elected state and federal lawmakers!

Thank you for participating!

New Jersey Legislation Update

Last night, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made comments regarding that state’s proposed online gaming bill, expressing concern for potential problem gaming issues. That is unfortunate, as the bill mandates several measures to address that issue.

Take Action

Let’s all remind Gov. Christie that A2578, the online poker bill in question, provides important protections for the small minority of players with problem gaming issues while simultaneously allowing the vast majority of those who wish to enjoy this activity in a responsible manner to do so. This is clearly preferable to a virtual prohibition that provides no protections for anyone. Simply send the prefilled, editable tweet HERE!
