Patrons to please note that this bill was signed into US law on 13 October 2006. Effectively, it means that financial transactions that fund online gambling are now illegal. Well known casinos like Golden Palace.com have responded by moving their US facing business to new entities which, strangely enough, even have a better range of slot machines than the old casino. Some online casinos have simply closed their doors to US Visitors. Microgaming casinos have responded in a balanced way by simply prohibiting US Players who come from states where a specific provision is made, in state law, to prohibit online gambling. We will update you as and when further changes become evident.
Good news for South African residents though is that the regulation of online gambling will probably be promulgated into law within the next few months. Licensing in South Africa will probably require that you be a BEE entity but, from a players perspective, isn't it great to play at some really excellent online casino sites including Pokerraum, and to KNOW that you are well within the law to do so! Viva South Africa, Viva Great Britain (leads regulation by example), and may the US Government learn from those who saw that regulation is FAR better for the man in the street than prohibition ever was!
