In China, real money betting games are illegal, but, due to social applications, people get a chance to play in previous years. It results in the growth of poker fans across Asia.
Tesla is gambling with its software update due to the clear legal status of poker in China. The software is for adult drivers and not children. Now, the software will provide a chance for Chinese poker fans to enjoy the game.
