Just to remind everyone of the timeline

Florida sees an explosion of internet cafes.

Police raid one cafe chain because apparently gambling is evil if its for profit but ok for charity.

Florida legislature writes the most hamfisted bill since The Patriot Act turning the use of the internet into a felony, immediately put 15,000 people out of work, and could cause more business closings.

Some cafes reopen with a new coat of paint and just offer straight cash winnings.

So it's legal as long as they don't pay you electronically?
