Still Needed

  • Omegix talked to the Sheriff's office. Sheriff's office said that what makes poker illegal is when you have a "House" meaning that people ante in, and a person not in the game benefits from a cut of the pot. Sheriff's office says that since the buy-in goes to the organization and we're giving out prizes that this event is legal.
