    Calm down dude, just let it go. It's not worth it. 

    This whole issue is about the GOVERNMENT sticking their nose into gamblers business. Lottery is gambling. Government is political. They go hand in hand. One day they may decide to change the laws where winners of the lottery of $600 or less will be forced to pay a fed tax to help repay the stimulas bill.

    Pepper1, I don't know from what country you come from but by your sentence structure you apparently are not from the USA. In this country you do not get thrown in jail for exercising your First Admendment, which is freedom of speech.

        Welcome to Lottery Post. If you take as much time and research  on picking your numbers as you have on looking up what the drive by media has reported on Bush you must be a very rich person.

          Welllllllllll,

          This was one of the more entertaining threads I've read in a while. LOL. Monkeys, hanging on nuts (hurts to think about that).

          Seriously, it goes back to this guy won the money in an online poker tournament. ONLINE. Right now, right or wrong, agree or disagree, gambling online is risky business, for your money and dealing with the gov't. If you play online, you are taking chances. This person did, they found out, bye bye $.

          I don't agree with it, but it is what it is.

            Right or wrong it's also, at least according to the government, illegal. This guy gambled at poker and won, but he also gambled on whether or not the government would catch him and enforce the law. Looks like he lost that bet. If they seized money from somebody who was being paid 10 grand to kill somebody nobody would be whining about the government interfering in hislife and taking his money, and nobody would be surprised. As long as the government keeps it (or maintains that it is) illegal, you can play your money, but you'll also be taking your chances.

              Wow - I was censored !

              The government wants to spread the wealth !

              The taxes you pay after winning the lottery are already high !

              The story had political implications !

                So does this mean its safe to make a cashout now? I cashed out for 300 bucks like 10 days ago and the check bounced, and I clearly understand why. And I appreciate Pokerstars putting the money back in my poker account for what its worth. But it doesnt do me much good unless its in my pocket. So what Im asking is this: If I request a cashout tomorrow is the exact same thing going to happen to me again? Or did this situation get fixed? Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

                  I wouldn't count on using the money for paying bills. You might as well plan on never having it, and if you do get paid, consider yourself fortunate.
