The code of the State of Virginia is unambiguous that any form of illegal gambling constitutes a Class III Misdemeanor:
Penalty for illegal gambling
Except as otherwise provided in this article, any person who illegally gambles or engages in interstate gambling as defined in § 18.2-325 shall be guilty of a Class 3 misdemeanor. If an association or pool of persons illegally gamble, each person therein shall be guilty of illegal gambling.
Class III Misdemeanors are pretty light charges in the state and can result in fines of no more than $500 and no jail time whatsoever.
Virginia is also interesting in that an individual who loses a sum of five dollars or more may institute suit within ninety days to recover the money, however, if the individual from whom the individual lost the money pays it back, then the winner is no longer subject to prosecution for anything.
Virginia does take big-time operators seriously, however. One store owner was arrested for conducting illegal gambling and had 200 devices confiscated, he had only been open for four days.
A SWAT Team also raided a home poker game last year seizing about $150,000.
In any event, we can find no instance of anyone who has ever faced any penalty for gambling from home. Furthermore, the letter of the law stipulates that the maximum possible penalty for doing such is a fine, so we are going to categorize Virginia as minimally restrictive.

"Thank you for your input on this topic. I agree with your post. It seems as though some of the casinos will allow US Players and then disallow them. I really don't understand this delimna. I always wonder if we violated some of the laws. Because it all happened suddenly at the same time. Microgamming used to allow US Players, now I have not been able to register with any of there casinos. Genesys have to review the account sometimes I really love the RTG casinos. They are US freindly. From time to time, I have played at a particular casino. And suddenly the T&C changes before I can boast on them. So it would really be great if we could keep this topic open for suggesitons and updates. "READ
