they really should allow adults with a credit card in their profile to play for some Marketplace points :) real etting is what makes poker and the likes worth playing

The legalities all over the world would cause more trouble than it is worth.

True i guess, but i mean if they wanted to it could be done XBL has the support for regioning and restricting, as well as parental and age controls... so the frameworks there just the legalities and legwork to get it done... would be interesting though, technically its not much different than any other online casino except marketplace would have better region restrictions :)

Then again "the framework" for something seems to be a moot point the "buy an episode" paradigm for tv shows could easily be done on marketplace with points but they still havent done it... and the whole what you buy is tied to you forever, so you can redownload only on your 360... as well as the DRM that its only available on the 360... i still can't see why tv stations haven't moved to get microsoft to do this for their shows.

Gambling laws vary massively across the world. The only way Internet Casinos get away with it is by being based in places with no laws against it, which is being investigated by many governments anyway.

Gambling wouldn't be interesting until there's some serious content on XBL, like TV shows and movies and more games..
