Be careful with poker sites in the future. Alot of the daily players will leave due to the law and more professional players will be there now.

The big books will find a loophole in this. Most feel that depositing my certified check will be ok and withdrawing by checks will be fine but still it's a bit of a hassle. According to some reports alot of the sportsbooks are trying to get there governments to go to the WTO on this law but the US has ignored the WTO in these situations in the past. It's the fucking religious right who has alot of the voting power causing this whole mess. The Republicans are desperate after there numbers have dropped off and they feel by appeasing the religous right they can in turn get there senators and congressman voted in this November.

I'm a member of a US based fixed forum and I know the admins on the site are extremely concerned to the fact that you alluded to - most of the revenue from the site actually comes in the form of sponsorship from other sportsbooks, even moreso than client money

Interesting times ahead....

BG - Most likely will be closed unless they are bought out by someone. I work over at UltimateCapper and the owner has already been talking to a Canadian company about them buying them out. Otherwise they'll either have to have services sponsor them or sell picks on the main page. Most of these ideas won't generate enough money. At this point sports gambling forums have all but one choice and that's to sell there site to a company based outside the US. Otherwise the site is illegal once Bush signs the deal.

You can drink yourself into a hole, smoke cigarettes until your lungs turn black, eat 100 cheesburgers a day until your heart explodes, but god forbid if you want to throw a few bucks down on your favourite sporting event. I am so sick of this shit! I guess the US government knows what is best for everyone. Rant over.

Re: Centrebet- closed all US accounts...why?

Dear customer,

The new law that has passed is unenforceable. Banks have no possible way of knowing or tracking what transactions are for gaming purposes. The law was tossed together at the last minute by the US Congress. I equate this law to the US government telling you that you are no longer allowed use your favorite sexual position in the comfort of your own home. They have no way of enforcing that either. It will be many years (if ever) that anyone will even notice this law is on the books in the US.

Sincerely,
Tony

Willhill, SunPoker and InterPoker have all closed there doors to US customers. They will no longer be taking on new US customers and existing customers accounts will be refunded by check and closed.

Okay... I'm too lazy you could say to read everything written in this thread but I have a question (possibly a silly one)

Is there a possibilty that Australian Centrebet Accounts will be closed too?

It is my only bookie.

My signature sucked so I made this one instead.

Re: Centrebet- closed all US accounts...why?

So what major online books are based in the US .. ? Will this limit US based punters from betting on sports / events outside America?

Re: Centrebet- closed all US accounts...why?

As a Dutch citizen, all this stuff sounds very common to me. By law I am not allowed to bet with foreign bookies on the internet, the Dutch government just want me to bet with the only legal book in Holland; Toto (sponsored by that same government). I've been lucky some books allow me and ignore the stupid Dutch law (Centrebet/Canbet/Betfair/Unibet).
Hope all you Americans find a reliable book who is willing to accept you, because I know how frustrating it can be when you are not able to join some very good books (Pinny for example for me).
