For gamblers in the state of Maine, options are fairly limited. Only two live casinos are open across the state and only one of them has a poker room. Two harness race tracks are also available, as well as some high stakes bingo rooms on tribal lands.
The limited gaming options, especially for sports bettors and poker players, leads many residents of Maine to look to offshore casinos to place wagers online. There are no laws on the books against online gambling in Maine, though the act could fall under the state's somewhat unclear law against gambling.
