Massachusetts Online Gambling Laws - Is Poker Legal?

Poker LawsPlaying poker online in the United States and Massachusetts is NOT illegal. Simply put, you are not in violation of any laws when you play online poker as an individual.

State law does not directly address online poker in anyway. The gambling laws are vague and have remained unchanged for several years.

Regulation and Taxes for Online Poker in Massachusetts

  • Status of regulation: Not regulated in the United States and Massachusetts.
  • Tax on Players: 0-44.8%. You are taxed on your poker winnings at the Federal and State levels. Federal taxes can be up to 39.6% at the highest level. Massachusetts has a flat rate state income tax of 5.2%.
  • Segregation: None - Massachusetts players share tables with players in other states and countries in the same combined player pool.

Cashout Times

Cashout times can vary by withdrawal method and from site to site. We recommend you view the US Poker Cashout Report for the most recent processing times.

Live Poker in Massachusetts

Massachusetts PokerThere are no live poker rooms in Massachusetts. Since it is a small state geographically, your best bet for live poker is to travel to neighboring Connecticut for poker action at Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun. Due to the travel time involved, playing online poker is a logical choice.

Online Poker Legislation

Massachusetts has tried to push for online poker and online gambling regulation in the past. Former United States Representative Barney Frank is from Massachusetts and has been one of the biggest supporters of pro-online gambling legislation in Congress. His term ended in January 2013. Let’s hope his support on this matter continues.

Poker legislation can change on a day to day basis - contact us by email if you see an update that should be made to this page or have difficulties getting online to play.
