Not entirely true, but it becomes a huge hassle and nuisance

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

BG, I'm assuming you mean the American folk can register for a bookie overseas as the poster before referred to??


So... for Aussies who have accounts in USA bookies like Bet365 or whatever... have their accounts been closed too?

Also can Americans walk into a TAB (example) and still bet?

EDIT: I read most of the thread now and that last question was just stupid. :retard:

Basically all USA books have been shut down right?
So everyone, everywhere, who was a registered client will those have had their account closed??

This is just fucking ridiculous.

My signature sucked so I made this one instead.

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

Why are so many non Americans following this? If this was happening in South America, I wouldn't being give a rats ass about this story. while it is ridiculous its still just gambling.... now matter how mainstream it is on the internet its still looked as wrong in american society.

It's always been illegal to bet in the US online but the gov't has never tried to go after the individual. This law that is being passed is to prevent financial institutions like paypal, neteller and firepay from allowing americans to transfer money from there bank account then to one of those sites onto a sportsbook then the reverse. Americans will still be able to wager online as the law doesn't go after the individuals but goes after the financial sector. What this does is make it harder to deposit and withdraw money. Banks still won't care where the money is coming from when you deposit a check. Most checks that come from sportsbooks come from reputable Canadian banks in which the US bank won't care to check the reasoning behind it. What you will see happen is alot of the smaller books and poker sites close up shop or merge. Big books like Pinnacle, 5Dimes and Olympic will always stay ahead of the game and won't be affected. We've seen UK sportsbooks already close there doors to US customers. This is most likely due to the relationship between our two countries. I don't forsee them reopening there doors either. Willhill, Bet365, Centrebet, InterPoker & SunPoker have closed there doors to US customers. As soon as the law is passed you will see a bunch more close there doors. Overall it doesn't affect the average gambler in the US but it does make things a bit harder.

Good Gambler - There are no US books. It's illegal here in the US. All books are based outside the United States. A large portion are based in the Carribean isles. Aussies are not affected by any of this. The only one's that have been affected have been Americans.
