Yes we know that UIGEA came as quite a shock, we also know, now in hindsight, that the issue and legality comes down to transfer of funds from a financial institution to an online gaming venue. See Is online gambling illegal
for the outlook.
Yes Microgaming took the stance they did, initially, for the soundest of reasons. And yet, many other gaming venues have found alternative deposit and pay out methods to retain their many USA customers. Even now, Some Microgaming based casino's still allow deposits and withdrawals from members in the states Who had an existing account
It is possible that UIGEA will be lifted by the new administration, or more likely it will remain on the books unenforced, which I find more likely. Our (sic) Representitives
have a history of being fine with enacting legislation, but rarely do they De-legislate anything.
In the mean time there is a huge market waiting and willing to put their money where their mouths are at.... waiting for a chance to play at your casino's.
Grin, I know you cannot change policy by yourself... and that ultimatly it is Microgaming itself that pulled the plug, but input from casinos, and their representatives could help pave the way to us once more sitting at your table.
