So, is online poker an MMO?
Well, nowadays its illegal for financial institutions to help you deposit money, but never mind that. If you get around that, you could easily lose enough money to pay for leveling at entire WoW party, but forget that too. There are also free poker games where you don't win anything, so nobody takes them seriously and you get no satisfaction from winning. We'll forget that too.
They keep track of the scores and rate you against thousands of people online and offline, so its an MMORPG.
Now about the other stuff.
Oddly enough, there's an advertising powered online poker game where you can withdraw real money. You don't deposit any, so you're not risking your own money, so technically its not gambling. It isn't easy, but I once withdrew $30. I used to win more than that in the old days, before the online poker rooms became so tough, but I still got a lot of satisfaction out of that thirty dollars.
