Where can I find the laws that govern poker parlors and gambling and such? Nevermind I found them.There was a major sting down here in Dublin over the last few days. We have a number of the Ingine owned stores closed off with police tape. It seems they were operating illegal poker machines and paying out cash. I do know that poker as in texas holdem is not held by the courts to be gambling since it requires SKILL vs just the luck of the draw. What would stop a person from opening up a poker parlor in GA. Why should I have to continue to ride to Jacksonville, JAsper, or Ocala FL to play poker? Besides, I don't know hardly any of the big wheels around Laurens county that isn't involved in a decent sized game. So why should the state not make some revenue off of it. The GA Lottery is the biggest gamble we have in GA with the lowest chance of return. It is pure luck if your number happens to fall. Off topic-- I found out I cannot get the Hope Grant and Tuition Assistance because according to the GA NG, the money comes from the same place. NOT. They claim the TA is state money, but it comes from the FED in the filter down process. I have been buying lottery tickets for years. I have yet to get 1 dime from the Hope scholarship. I also hear that they are going broke. It is time to clean house at the GA Lottery Corp. They are robbing millions from the education system it was intended for. So back on topic, how can I open a legal Poker Parlor? Pay off enough politicians, right?
