The rules governing online sweepstakes, contests, and tournaments with entry fees or prizes are determined by each individual state, not the federal government.
In accordance with these laws, players who reside in the following states will not be able to upgrade their membership to participate in cash tournaments:
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
If you reside in one of the states above you can still register and participate in the free tournaments, however, you will not be able to participate in the cash tournaments. If you would like to see the laws changed in your state (as we would!) then please contact your state legislator!
