Things are getting a little bit back to normal since April 15th as far as online poker is concerned. PokerStars has allowed cashouts for U.S. players, though still not accepting them, and other websites are taking advantage of this by allowing U.S. citizens. As it stands, nothing is completely certain but there are a few guesses on what could happen to online poker.

One popular belief is that each state will have their opinion on regulation online poker. This could be very good news to some players. Even those in states outlawing it could most likely move to another state as opposed to another country. Still not the greatest outcome but at least you wouldn't have to move too far. A state close to the capital could really show progress in the legalization of online poker. Maryland online poker would be a great start.

Unlike a good amount of states, Maryland doesn't offer any Indian Casinos. They do, however, have a couple of other casinos such as Hollywood Casino and the newly opened Ocean Downs Casino. Maryland online poker could create a whole new group of players as the state in a whole lacks in the brick and mortar aspect. Maryland online poker could also create new jobs by having unemployed citizens work for their sites, not to mention the taxes that could be received for the state.

It's still not a sure thing that Maryland online poker will ever happen. But, the good news is that U.S. players are still playing on some sites. Hopefully with the new F.B.I. seizing of sites such as PokerStars and FullTilt Poker laws will be a bit more clear on the legality issue of online poker. Who knows, maybe it will be up to the state.
