An Act To Amend the Laws Governing Games of Chance

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 17 MRSA §341, sub-§1,  as repealed and replaced by PL 2007, c. 554, §2, is amended to read:

1. Limits.   The maximum bet for licensed games of chance, including card games in which bets are placed per hand or per deal, is $1 for any one chance, hand or deal. Licensed card games that award part or all of the entry fees paid to participate as prize money and in which no money or thing of value is wagered except for the entry fee are limited to a $5 daily entry fee and no more than 40 80 players at any one time at any one location.


This bill amends the laws governing games of chance, including licensed card games such as "Texas hold 'em," to increase from 40 to 80 the number of players that are allowed at any one time at any one location.
