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.
Indiana and Maine restrictions - Indiana and Maine residents can upgrade and participate in cash tournaments, however, they will not be able to participate in any of the Card-style games on WorldWinner per the state's restrictions.
If you would like to see the laws changed in your state (as we would!) then please contact your state legislator!
