Microgaming Online Casinos Pull Out of USA

Published on: April 28, 2011 

Following the enactment of the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, Microgaming casinos continued to function in the United States, although a few of them withdrew from the states where internet gambling was explicitly outlawed.

However, pursuant to the recent action that was taken by the Federal Government in the United States against US poker sites, which is now known as “Black Friday”, it seems as though this action has had a ripple effect. It would appear as though a huge majority of Microgaming Casinos have announced that they will be pulling out of the US market for the time being.

The All Slots USA Casino program is one of the first to exit from the US online casino market while other casinos that seem to be absent are Casinos which include all Fortune Lounge Group sites such as Platinum Play, 7 Sultans, Vegas Palms and Royal Vegas. Gaming Club and Jackpot Factory group which include All Jackpots and All Slots have also made a decision to refrain from referring all US traffic to their sites onwards to a Real Time Gaming Casino partner.

Although the US government has not yet made Online Gambling illegal, they have made the funding part of online gambling illegal via the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. Online players have therefore found it literally impossible to make a purchase via a convenient means at a US Casino due to the recent action taken by the US government. The action by the US government will leave a gap in the market but operators on Real Time Gaming as well as Bodog are continuing to operate in the United States, thus leaving online players with a few options to continue their gaming.

One of the best reasons for legislation and regulation in the online gambling industry is the fact that since the All Slots USA program has closed down it would appear as though the program has sent on player details to a third party to market another Casino product to the entire US market database, which is a very unethical thing to do.
