Technically no.

Very few things are actually "illegal" in the "united states." Most things are state laws. There are federal crimes like bank robbery and kidnapping, but most laws vary from state to state.

No, but I think it might be illegal in Washington State.

It is a class C felony there.

Hopefully online poker will be legalized soon!
