The six of spades on the river gave you a full house that won the $50,000 first place payout in an online poker tournament. That $10,000 bet you placed on one hand of blackjack ended up being split four times, with two of the hands being doubled down. The dealer busts and there you sit with $60,000 on your account. Now the question becomes how much of your new-found fortune is actually yours?
The way your winnings are handled is determined by you…and the gaming laws of your jurisdiction.
