Colma Voters Support Unlimited Betting - Wednesday 19th of April 2006

COLMA, California – As reported by the San Francisco Chronicle: "Voters in Colma on Tuesday supported unlimited betting at a local casino in poker and Asian games in an advisory measure intended to sway the state Legislature to allow no-limit gambling.

"…Unlimited betting was allowed from the time the Lucky Chances Casino opened in 1998 until December of last year, when the city government and casino management followed a directive from the state attorney general's office and limited bets to $200.

"Measure R is not binding, but Colma leaders hoped the support of the town's 1,200 or so residents could help persuade the state Legislature to clarify California laws and ensure that no-limit gambling is allowed. Most of poker's recent worldwide popularity is because of no-limit hold 'em, a game now illegal in Colma, but available at many other Bay Area cardrooms…"
