Microgaming Casinos pull out of U.S. market

November 08, 2008

Play free casino games like slots, video poker, online roulette, blackjack, baccarat, craps and more.

Online gambling in the USA has received another hit with the announcement that Microgaming casinos software is pulling out.

Microgaming operators have taken a decision to block all new U.S. customers from signing up to gambling sites powered by their software.

Rumors claim that this was partially to credit card processing problems and fear of persecution by the United States Government.

The final decision was influenced by the Kentucky forfeiture case, which has already seen several online casinos block U.S. players in order to comply with the ruling and avoid domain name seizures.

Although Microgaming’s does not offer any actual gambling through their website, it is featured on its client's internet casino sites whose domain names were on Kentucky's seizure list of over 100 sites that were required to block access. Up to date, Microgaming had already blocked 13 states since the UIGEA was passed.

All previously registered U.S. casino players will be able to continue playing however no new U.S. gamblers will be able to join Microgaming online casinos as new customers.

It seems that only time will tell if the legalization and regulation of online gambling will become a reality, especially with more and more US senators and congress man pushing for the regulation of online gambling as a tax resource. In the mean while, many companies try to abide by the current laws as they believe that it will increase their chances to receive U.S. licensing in the future.

Good Luck
