From its first legislative sessions in 1819, the Illinois General Assembly, in "An Act for the Prevention of Vice and Immorality," prohibited citizens of the state from playing "at cards, dice, billiards, bowls, shovel board, or any game of hazard" or running "any horse, mare, or gelding" for money.
Violators were to pay $10 for each offense. Those who lost bets could not be required to pay, and if they did so, they could sue within thirty days to recover the money. In 1827 the legislature raised the fine to a minimum of $25 and extended the time for recovery of gambling losses to six months.
If the loser failed to sue, any other person could sue for triple the amount. If successful, the plaintiff in such cases would receive one half the award, and the county would receive the other half. The legislature also prohibited the sale of playing cards, dice, and billiard tables.

That's because pool is the debbil, that's what my mama used to say

Few Experience What I Really Am...

You think that you're one thing, but understand that you're seen as another, so you suspect that maybe you are the other, but you don't know what that means... "Calhoun"

Thanks you guys. I had no idea pool tables were ever outlawed anywhere. I have noticed there is some gambling going on among the pool players. I will have to tell people that I can no longer play pool for money because I found out that it is bad.
