According to Bill CS/HB 155 in FL electronic gabling devices are illegal. Now one doesn't think of Diablo 3 being a gambling but due to the bills poor use of words it seems that it does. Line 181 of the bill states what a 'Slot Machine' is defined as. If you continue to line 193 I'm not allowed to make money from anything that has the 'Chance' factor. Well D3 is all about chance, and since you can get real money from that chance factor I would also assume this breaks the law there.
Whats your thoughts on this?

Ok I really don't know how to say this and get it through to some of you. Florida does what it wants and doesn't care about rights. They will lock you up for any reason they can find if they want to. There is no accountability with our law enforcement, politicians, or state prosecutors.

You may not know this but the way these internet café casinos would work is that they would have computers lined up in their shop. When a patron comes in they are sold time on using those computers. The computers could be used to surf the net but all of them have slot machines showing. They were trying to circumvent the gambling laws by arguing they were selling internet time. I know this cuase I have met a guy that owned a few and knew some youngsters that worked at them.
BTW gambling in FL is illegal unless it's done at the Hard Rock
Corruption and Kickbacks FTW!
