Texas has always had some very strict anti-gambling laws, especially when it comes to online poker, but that might change soon. A few different bills have been introduced to state congress which would see internet poker bein legalized and to expand the rights of the state residents to make use of such online games. If approved, these bills would ammend the 'Social Poker Gaming Act' of 2013 and as republican Eddie Rodriguez mentioned in a statement: “We make criminals out of poker players, and we don’t have to. The rest of the country is catching up to this idea. I hope Texas will follow suit.”
