WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Hell’s Kitchen in downtown Wilmington may have to put a hold on “Hell’s Hold ‘em” night because the events are illegal.
According to the ALE, Hell’s Kitchen has received a warning that having organized poker nights is a violation of state law and is flat out gambling. The law enforcement agency said that any game where a value is at stake is against state law. This includes games like Texas Hold’em and Roulette apply.
ALE says the bar was told to stop holding the poker nights and they wouldn’t receive a fine or citation.
