Now, that's the million-dollar question, isn't it? If you are living in the United States, then you are probably among the many people who are hoping that the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA) would be repealed or replaced someday. Some would argue that online poker is not technically illegal.

However, the UIGEA made it illegal for banks to transfer money to and from online gambling sites. One can't really know for sure when online poker sites would be allowed to operate freely without facing any legal issues in the US.
