Unlawful Internet gambling is defined as:
online bets made solely on or among Indian tribal lands under enabling laws adopted by the affected tribes and approved by the National Indian Gaming Commission. [Note: no such laws have been adopted or approved at this time.]
The new law, therefore, only applies to online gambling operators who violate other existing state or federal anti-gambling laws. Some commentators on this aspect of the Act conclude that since there are only a handful of states that expressly ban Internet gambling, this law has not accomplished very much.
The better view is that all of the online gambling sportsbooks, casinos and cardrooms violate existing anti-gambling laws of every one of the fifty states. This is because:
Thus, this professional form of unlicensed gambling appears to be illegal whether or not the state has adopted a specific Internet anti-gambling law.
So basically, it all boils down to federal and state laws...but with different states holding different statutes, online gambling becomes very difficult.

Fixed that for you.
We play at the park for 10 dollars a game (five each) and a dollar a point in material. Double for checkmate in 30 moves or less. Needless to say, I'm not getting rich.
