State laws on gambling and poker may have changed - check with the state


Do you want to do some serious Gold Mining in Alaska? Over 2000 acres of mining claims just waiting to be mined and they’re located on a belt of mineral deposits starting with Pebble to the SW and continuing N to the Chisna area and swinging SE toward the Nabesna Mine and Gold Hill.

Gambling is legally restricted in the United States, but its availability and participation is increasing. In 2007, gambling activities generated gross revenues (the difference between the total amounts wagered minus the funds or "winnings" returned to the players) of $92.27 billion in the United States. Commercial casinos provided 354,000 jobs, and state and local tax revenues of $5.2 billion as of 2006. Critics of gambling claim it leads to increased political corruption, compulsive gambling and higher crime rates. Others claim that gambling is a type of regressive tax on the individuals in local economies where gambling venues are located.
