i would just like a straight answer no run around and no vagueness. a yes or no answer is it legal to play online poke at http://sports.bovada.lv/ in louisiana.
You have a legal conundrum because here state laws and federal laws apply, including the IRS and financial reporting for foreign accounts. So its a tough call which needs a little more research for a yes or no answer. Good luck.
The response above is not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from a criminal defense attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.
People want many things but most often they can't get them for free. Well, how about that, you just got a life lesson -- all for free. This must be an exception to the rule. As for your legal question, you're going to have to pay an attorney to do the research and incur the liability risk necessary to answer. Assuming, of course, that one will agree to represent you. Good luck.
The above response is general information ONLY and is not legal advice, does not form an attorney-client relationship, and should NOT be relied upon to take or refrain from taking any action. I am not your attorney. You should seek the advice of competent counsel before taking any action related to your inquiry.
You're going to have a hard time getting that kind of an answer on here where attorneys don't want you to rely on their advice without an attorney-client relationship. I'd try reaching out to a BR attorney who is experienced in gaming law or the Gaming Division of the Louisiana Attorney General's Office. They will probably answer this for you. http://www.ag.state.la.us/Article.aspx?articleID=28&catID=0#GamingDivision
