Vermont Gambling Laws
The Vermont gambling laws are one of the more lenient gambling laws in the United States. 2141 of the Vermont statue states that "A person who wins or loses money or other valuable thing by play or hazard at any game, or by betting on such play or hazard, or sharing in a stake wagered by others on such play or hazard, shall be fined not more than $200.00 nor less than $10.00". Entering a gambling house could land you a $200 fine and/or sixty days in jail. Play at a home game in Vermont should not be considered a gambling house but playing at an online poker room could be. Overall, the laws are player friendly and will probably not get you in too much trouble if you are smart about the way you do your gambling.
