Online Poker in Massachusetts

The Bay State

Regulated Online Poker Massachusetts. On November 4th 2014 the gubernatorial election is held in Massachusetts. The two Democratic candidates Attorney Martha Coakley and State Treasurer Steve Grossman are the frontrunners. All Massachusetts citizens that want regulated online poker should be rooting for Grossman, since he has been advocate of online gaming the last two years.
