NCAA Office Pool Betting is Illegal
Having solved all the rest of Washington's problems, state gambling officials have decreed that office betting pools are illegal.
[Gambling Commission spokeswoman Amy] "Hunter said the only legal sports-betting pools are 100-square grids, commonly used in football pools, with entrants paying $1 or less."
So there is an actual committee that must rifle through all possible gambling scenarios and has determined that the 100-square grid is OK. What a wonderful use of tax dollars.
