What Does Arizona Consider Social Gambling? Does That Make Online Poker Legal in Arizona?
By Arizona law, social gambling means any form of gambling that is not being run for profit or as part of a business. It also means that all the players in the game are competing against each other on totally equal terms and only against each other. That leaves the door open for home poker games, as long as (and this is spelled out in the state’s laws) the benefit of the gambling taking place is just the amount of money being wagered and nothing else (meaning no rake), as long as all of the players in your home game are 18 years or older, and as long as all the players of the game have an equal risk and potential gain.
