Virginia May Be for Lovers, But Not for Gamblers

Although a bill to legalize riverboat gambling in Virginia failed yet again, Virginians may have to seek out other venues if they wish to gamble. Visit Maryland or play online; those are your options. They do, however, allow horse racing, lottery, and duck races. Yes, you heard that right. Of course, charitable gambling is also allowed. Here again, there are no laws specifically stating that gambling is illegal, but the state assumes that it is, and therefore, it is.
