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.


  1. Could you imagine if the Federal government made dumb laws like that affecting the entire country? Good thing Washington DC is so much more sensible than Washington State.

  2. Good point. Good thing we had such a great small government president for the last 8 years and now that great small government party can keep in check the new big government party.
