Gateway to Gaming (“G2G”) Interview

written by I. Nelson Rose

I was recently interviewed for “Game On,” G2G News’ flagship show, by Jay Sayta, one of India’s leading gaming lawyers.  We discussed ongoing cases involving online gaming, daily fantasy sports, gaming machines and poker.  Topics included skill versus chance, regulation of games of skill, and taxation of gaming.

My focus was on the U.S., including pending rulings in New York and Virginia.  But, with permission from plaintiff’s French lawyer, I was able for the first time to also discuss an interesting case on appeal in France.  Under French law, skill requires “exercise du corps” or the use of the body, as in archery.  I testified as an expert witness that in-person poker involves bluffs and tells, which almost by definition involve players using their bodies.  In my “Avis d’Expert” I included references to Rounders and A Big Hand for the Little Lady, which, if you haven’t seen, you should definitely rent over the holidays.
