NRS 465.075: "licensed gaming establishment or any game that is offered by a licensee or affiliate..."

This would require the "offender" to play at a local casino, i.e. in or licensed by Nevada. Offshore/Foreign gaming sites wouldn't be included in that definition. The spirit of 465.075 seems to be aimed at Blackjack. The rest of the provisions involving "electronic devices" are aimed at altering the odds or knowing the outcome of the game (which excludes bots). Many countries don't have the former mandate and instead enforce it civilly. I venture this is the case because most lands recognize the hypocrisy in allowing a casino criminal action for something that is pretty much common practice in every other facet of life.

Having a faster computer, a faster connection, a smarter smart phone, the latest software, a better car, more efficient home heating, better schooling, better genes, or some other (technological) advancement usually gives one a competitive advantage in life, directly or indirectly. To criminalize such a thing so a casino can enforce their personal policies and make more money doesn't seem fair. Ultimately it's their establishment and their rules, but to put a person in the category of "criminal" for breaking them seems a bit hypocritical.

Those are ancient laws first initiated to combat Ken Ustons blackjack computers back in the 1970s and various slot mechanic devices. These laws are meant to protect the house and not the players of course. Again these laws where put into effect by casino lobbyists aiming to protect their bottom line and not the public. Slot cheating in Nevada carries the same penalty as armed bank robbery. Really? Yeah lets put running poker bots right up there with armed robbery.

None of these laws serve the public good. So Pot is legal in many states now but online gambling isn't? So apparently drug addiction is the lesser evil then gambling addiction.

But most poker laws that are being introduced in the US have botting as a crime


I was already aware of the Nevada laws which are very old. What about the "laws that are being introduced" ?

@spears: You wanted to know if it's a crime, you've got your answer. Not convinced? Then you won't be. FYI, every online gaming bill in the States that has been passed or up for debate in recent years has a clause about botting being a crime. Google is your best friend.

The latest state laws probably mirror Nevada's provisions on botting (which are spirited towards Blackjack), and again, are only relevant to local casinos.
