Little / None

There are codes in the State of Maine regarding, ‘Advance Gambling Activity,’ but those codes focus on people acting as anyone other than a mere player or participant. Furthermore, a person could be found guilty under the statute if they have ownership or control over a premises in which the unlawful gambling is taking place and do nothing to stop it.  

The State of Maine also offers a definition for gambling:

"GAMBLING. A person engages in gambling if he stakes or risks something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance or a future contingent event not under his control or influence, upon an agreement or understanding that he or someone else will receive something of value in the event of a certain outcome. Gambling does not include bona fide business transactions valid under the law of contracts, including but not limited to contracts for the purchase or sale at a future date of securities or commodities, and agreements to compensate for loss caused by the happening of chance, including but not limited to contracts of indemnity or guaranty and life, health or accident insurance."

However, that definition does not carry with it any apparent penalties for being engaged in gambling as a mere player or participant.  

Unlawful gambling is a Class D crime which can carry with it a sentence of one to three years in prison and takes place when an individual profits from unlawful gambling activity other than as a mere player.  

There is nothing in the laws of Maine that call for any punishment whatsoever to befall individuals who are acting as mere players in a gambling enterprise whether or not said enterprise is otherwise lawful. Essentially, all of the laws of the State of Maine are focused on operators rather than mere players.

Last year a VFW post commander was arrested for operating an illegal video poker machine at the VFW location.

There really isn’t much other news concerning arrests in Maine for illegal gambling, much less arrests of players playing online...probably because it is perfectly legal.

In some ways, Maine is actually less restrictive than other states because players seem to be perfectly free to play whatever they want to and there is only punishment for operators of online gambling enterprises. Therefore, we are going to rank Maine as having Little/None in terms of restrictions on players gambling online.
