Legal Online Poker Accepting Maryland Players

Legal Online Poker Accepting Maryland Players | This Week in Gambling - Poker News | Scoop.it
Maryland is one of the top 50 states that really does not like gambling, or should we say the state politicians don’t.


It is in fact one of the more popular poker playing states despite a small state of only about 3 million people. Below we discuss Maryland poker sites and the situation with the State.


1. Betonline.ag – This poker site is the only poker site accepting all 50 States, and has a solid reputation for protecting their US players.


2. Cakepoker.eu – While they are the only 1 of 2 sites to accept Maryland, I’m not a fan of the site. They have gone downhill after being acquired/partnered with their affiliates, and deposits/withdraws are really slow.

Calvin Ayre Hires Slotnick Father Son Team to Take on Baltimore US Attorney

Calvin Ayre Hires Slotnick Father Son Team to Take on Baltimore US Attorney | This Week in Gambling - Poker News | Scoop.it
Bodog.com founder Calvin Ayre has hired the father son tandem of Barry and Stuart Slotnick to represent him just one month after being charged with money laundering by the US Attorney’s Office out of Maryland.


The Slotnick’s successfully helped their client Sportingbet enter into a Non-Prosecution agreement with the US Justice Department, resulting in a fine that was one quarter of that which rival PartyGaming had to pay.


While a Non-Prosecution agreement is not possible in this case (Ayre has already been charged with a felony), it is clear that the colorful founder of Bodog now intends to fight the charges, as opposed to hiding out the rest of his life in some third world country like Chad or Sierra Leone.


Maryland US Attorney Rod Rosenstein will go up against the man who got New York City subway shooter Bernard Goetz off scot-free. That would be father, Barry.

It’s Stuart who has done much of the legwork when it comes to the online gambling sector, however.


The younger Slotnick represents casino magnate Steve Wynn. He has successfully challenged the US Army's stop-loss policy. Slotnick has also served as the long time attorney for the clothing company American Apparel.


Ayre’s side appears to be poised to argue that Bodog’s founder did not act as CEO of the US-facing brand during a period of time the indictment claims an informant witnessed Ayre making appearances in the company’s Costa Rica-based office.
