    Because Anything that is illegal, someone will 'make book' on.

    Gambling is not "federally illegal".  You thought wrong.

    It's like moonshine and marijuana. It's illegal if you don't give Uncle Sam his tax cut.

    Talking about gambling, even online gambling, is not the same as gambling.

    The other thing to consider is that Yahoo users are from all over the world.  It's not restricted to US residents only.  Online gambling is very legal in many parts of the world.

      Online gambling is legal in many US states.

    MOST states have a lottery (to raise money) and many have passed plebiscites (VOTE OF THE CITIZENS) to allow casinos in their states. If these violate federal laws, no one has yet challenged them successfully in any Federal courts.

    It's illegal to gamble online, it's not illegal to talk about it online.

    It’s run by states, not the federal government.  So some states have it in some form it another, and some don’t.
