A Twin Falls, Idaho (USA), last week, police raided a senior center to invite a group of elders who met every Friday to play poker to quit the habit.
The group of retirees bet a $ 20 buy-in not knowing that in the state of Idaho to play with real money is illegal. Norman Pohl, commented that arrived at that age to play for fun and to socialize. The elderly became her about a $ 400 – $ 500 monthly to cover the expenses of the same Twin Falls Senior Center.
But the police did not want to know about this explanation and has forced the elderly to play with real money instead of another because it is forbidden.
