How To Make Money From Home | Ways To Make Money



If you are thinking you might want to work from home and  make a living playing online poker, it might be smart to consider another option for your career choice. The US government is busy trying their hardest to make online poker illegal and a felony in the United States. It is already a reality in a handful of US states and in Germany.

The video below is both funny and scary because it could really happen in our out of control goverment that is so determined to protect us from ourselves. Many people are able to make a nice living from poker but it looks like online poker jobs are a risky proposition. If you want to play poker as a job, you had better go to an Indian casino where the government says it is OK because they tax that revenue. As long as they get their taxes, gambling is fine with our fearless government leaders. State lotteries, for instance, are used to further drain the resourses of the poor who can’t afford to play while lining the coffers of our elected officials who crave power. That’s my take anyway.

If you are interested in playing online poker without any risk, you can always play at PurePlay where thousands compete every day for real cash prizes. It is also a good place to play to get used to the online game and they have $10,000.00 tournaments that you can get it for free! Playing poker at PurePlay is better than playing with free chips at FullTilt or PokerStars because the people are trying to win real money and at FT and PS the people are just messing around.

    Online poker should be legal in United States. It’s all I can say. It’s up to people to decide whether they want to play online poker or not.

    I really liked the clip, it was funny but also not scary – hope the world doesn’t end up like that. A lot of people are successful from online poker so to take it away would be harsh.

    The main reason they banned online poker from the States is to regulate the addicted gamblers. But how can prevention be achieved when the real casinos which caters the same games are just a drive away?

    That’s true but all most all the fish went out of online poker when they made it harder to deposit money. The casual fish said goodbye to poker because it was too hard for them to make deposits. It was those thousands of college fish and fish from around the world that were really pumping up the game. Who wants to play against only the good and winning players? I sure don’t.

    It’s only a matter of time until poker will be legal again in US . Is better for the gov to get taxes from this popular game .

    I totally agree with #2 – the fact it is illegal makes it so much more appealing to people who otherwise would never play, people should be able to take control on their lives and decide if they want to play online poker or not.

    I’ve played poker since 2004 and some of the comments here say the fish left with the fall of the american market, trust me theres plenty of european fish out there too..

    Poker as a living is only for the 1% or less. You should always view it as fun and never gamble with more than you can afford
