Well, it could be illegal, of course (considering it's also a
whorehouse).  While there are no casinos per se in Washington, there are
certainly plenty of places in the state to play poker legally.  Maybe
the casino is actually just a poker club?

And, FYI, you certainly don't need to go to Nevada to find legal
casinos.  There are some in Oregon, believe it or not.  They just have
some pretty strange restrictions & they're not allowed to advertise
within the state.

Also, there legal casinos in Canad -- not just government-run lotteries.
