Title: Poker in Northern Ireland
Post by: Desi on November 26, 2011, 07:41:51 PM
The antiquated gambling laws in N Ireland need to be changed.

Simply put, poker should be legalised in N. Ireland. It makes no sense that games of chance, such as bingo and slot/fruit machines, as well as bookmaking, are all allowed while poker, which is a game of skill requiring maths, game theory, psychology and more, is not permitted. Lobby your MLA and local councils to change the law to make poker legal in N. Ireland.

Like our page ( and share it with as many people as possible.

Any help on this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Representatives from Legalise Poker NI have been invited to brief the Committee for Social Development on the Department for Social Development’s review of gambling law at the Committee meeting to be held at 10am Thursday 19 January 2012, in room 29, Parliament Buildings! In the next month we will be preparing our presentation. What we need from all of you is to get more signatures on our e-petition and more likes on our Facebook page. In addition to the case we will be making before the committee, we need to show the committee that there is public support.
