Missouri Poker
The state of Missouri is one that offers a change of pace when it comes to live poker. The state offers riverboat casino options so players can enjoy the water views while they hit the poker tables. The Missouri Gaming Commission regulates the gambling options and the state offers many different poker options.

The state defines the game of poker as one of skill and the definition of the game in this manner only applies when poker is offered by operators who are licensed by the Missouri Gaming Commission. The state also offers tribal casino gaming options but poker gaming is limited.

Online Poker in Missouri
Like many other states, Missouri does not specifically cover gambling or poker in the online sense. When the game does not include licensed operators, the definition applies as according to the criminal laws. The game is not determined as one of chance or skill so players do still have an argument.

It may seem as though online poker options are illegal in the state but players could argue that jurisdiction would not fall under the state as the games would take place with an outside source. However, this argument may not work as just less than one year ago two men from the state were found guilty for using gambling options online outside of the US.
