The law in the State of Vermont is quite simple as relates players, those who are engaged in gambling can face fines of $10-$200, though there is no apparent jail time involved with the offense of gambling:
§ 2141. Winning or losing by gambling
A person who wins or loses money or other valuable thing by play or hazard at any game, or by betting on such play or hazard, or sharing in a stake wagered by others on such play or hazard, shall be fined not more than $200.00 nor less than $10.00.
Vermont also has laws in place dealing with the recovery of money or property lost provided a person brings suit within one month of the money or property being turned over.
However, the state is quite serious when it comes to operators and calls for penalties of up to one year imprisonment for a first offense of setting up gambling as well as a fine of up to $10,000, with the same fine, but up to three years imprisonment for future offenses:
Chapter 51: Gambling And Lotteries
§ 2101. Setting up, promoting or aiding
Except as provided in section 2143 of this title, a person who sets up or promotes a lottery for money or other property, or disposes of money or property by a lottery, and a person aiding or concerned in so doing, or who knowingly allows premises owned or occupied by him or her or under his or her control to be used for that purpose, or by persons raffling or using a game of chance for money or property, shall be imprisoned not more than one year or fined not more than $10,000.00, or both, for the first offense and imprisoned not more than three years or fined not more than $10,000.00, or both, for each subsequent offense.
The law is also a little different for individuals who are actually playing at a, ‘Gambling house,’ for which they still face fines of up to $200, but can also be imprisoned for up to sixty days. Bookmaking also carries with it separate penalties.
There was a bust last year of an illegal poker game, but no arrests were made and the punishment was light, the bust was also due to alcohol being served after hours.
In any event, there have been no busts for an individual gambling online at home that we can find, and even if there were, the individual in question would only be subject to a small fine. With that, we will rank Vermont as Little/None in terms of restrictiveness.
