Question about Skilled Gaming

Question

Didn't really see the issue type I was looking for because mine is more of a question. I was wondering why Florida isn't allowed to get into skilled gaming sims because I read this 

"Although Florida is home to one of the healthiest brick and mortar gambling industries, it does not authorize, manage, or regulate any online casinos. Residents of the Sunshine State can either travel to a nearby land-based gambling establishment or try their hand at the casino-style alternative with online skill games. Unlike slots and most casino table games, skill games are interactive puzzle games that test knowledge and speed. All skill games are legal to gamble on for real cash."

 

From that I thought florida would be allowed to access them seeing as it's called a skilled gaming sim. Just wondering why we can't is all. Thanks for your time.

You'll have to ask Linden Lab.  Their legal department is careful to follow all state and federal regulations regarding gambling, because the authorities can come down very hard on on-line companies that bend the rules.  As residents, we have no way of knowing exactly what they base their decision to allow or disallow Florida residents on.

The answer is that Florida is a state whose definition of "online gambling" includes SL skill games, or is ambiguous enough about it to worry LL's attorneys, despite what you may have read elsewhere.
