Top Maryland Democrats divided over gambling | This Week in Gambling - News | Scoop.it

Gov. Martin O'Malley and Democratic leaders in Maryland's General Assembly appear to be in agreement that the Democratic governor should call a special session to pass tax and revenue increases.

Observers say the result is an apparent showdown between Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr., an ardent supporter of expanded gambling, and Mr. O'Malley and House Speaker Michael E. Busch, both of whom are highly skeptical of the proposal.

Maryland Poker Sites – Legal Online Poker Accepting Maryland Players

Maryland Poker Sites – Legal Online Poker Accepting Maryland Players | This Week in Gambling - 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.


Why is Maryland blocked by so many poker sites, casinos and sportsbooks? Well it’s because their aggressive attempt by the D.O.J. to make headlines and the mighty dollar from seizing “illegal” gambling profits from these companies.
