The State of New Mexico is fairly unambiguous when it comes to their stance on Online Gambling, by statute:
While the State of New Mexico makes illegal any form of gambling (including for players) not otherwise authorized by law, the penalties are pretty minimal:
Gambling consists of:
A. making a bet;
B. entering or remaining in a gambling place with intent to make a bet, to participate in a lottery or to play a gambling device;
C. conducting a lottery; or
D. possessing facilities with intent to conduct a lottery.
Whoever commits gambling is guilty of a petty misdemeanor."
However, while, ‘Petty Misdemeanor,’ leads one to believe that it is a proverbial, ‘Slap on the hand,’ petty misdemeanor sentences in the state can range from fines of $100-$500 and thirty days to six months in jail.
The State of New Mexico does distinguish operators from mere players and provides stronger potential penalties for illegal commercial gambling operators:
"30-19-3. Commercial gambling.
Commercial gambling consists of either:
A. participating in the earnings of or operating a gambling place;
B. receiving, recording or forwarding bets or offers to bet;
C. possessing facilities with the intent to receive, record or forward bets or offers to bet;
D. for gain, becoming a custodian of anything of value, bet or offered to be bet;
E. conducting a lottery where both the consideration and the prize are money, or whoever with intent to conduct a lottery, possesses facilities to do so; or
F. setting up for use, for the purpose of gambling, or collecting the proceeds of, any gambling device.
Whoever commits commercial gambling is guilty of a fourth degree felony."
In the State of New Mexico, Fourth Degree Felonies call for up to eighteen months of imprisonment.
Three years ago, as of the time of this writing, there was an arrest in New Mexico of a couple for commercial gambling as they operated an illegal horse track.
Internet searches turned up little else with respect to unlawful gambling arrests in New Mexico, and not surprisingly, found no incidence of mere players ever being arrested in any case despite the fact that the law makes such theoretically possible.
In conclusion, it cannot be completely ignored that New Mexico provides penalties for mere players participating in unauthorized gambling, but those statutes are unenforced. Nevertheless, we must categorize the state as, ‘Moderately Restrictive,’ due to the potential theoretical penalties on the books.

The reason why your withdrawal was denied was due to you claiming MORE than four free bonuses without making a successful deposit between free bonus claims. Yes the bonus was sent to you to thank you for your previous deposit, but that deposit was more than a month ago. We clearly state that all players need to adhere to free bonus terms and also ensure that they keep their free money redemptions to a minimum or alternatively make frequent deposits to ensure they maintain a health bonus to purchase ratio. You are more than welcome to claim free bonuses, but please make sure to deposit frequently Regards Jason thank you jason. yes i know why i was denied- as i said i know your rules- it is me that i made an error when i see the thanks bonus- and then i was confused when one day after i received an other bonus where i was eligible that is all- you explained me that te $40 was for active players and $50 for no depositors - ok it is clear for me now- just a mistake- thank you fo r your intervention-I am not an enough active player so i am no depositor- please i sent my documents and i did no get a confirmaton about the account verification- can you make something for that please ?

"Hi! I started playing online casino in 2006, before I was playing slot machines in land casinos. i discovered the online casino world by simply clicking on a pub on the internet and it allowed me to open my first account on an online casino.Since I was passionate about slot machines, I preferred playing in an online casino instead of the traditional casinos because i found excitement in an online casino is much larger, it not only money but also save a lot of time while enjoying the same excitement at home.My first casino was Casino770, i started playing super multitimes progressive slot and I remember I won with good combinations.
