    US Members Only: Poll about the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act)

    It's been a month since this law has been signed into effect, and I'm curious on how this has affected the US based Casinomeister forum members so far.

    I just added an additional question so that anyone not residing in the US can choose this and therefore they can view the poll

    I'm still confused.

    If you can't go to jail for gambling online, how can they name it "Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act"?

    Or maybe I'm just confused, because as far as I see they're just making it almost impossible to deposit to your casino account.

    Either way, I'm not really complaining. For one, it's saving me money...two, it's forcing me to travel 2.5 hours to a B&M casino, where I'm making me more money than if I was playing online. This way I don't have to worry about lame T&C's, nor whether or not I'm going to get paid
    Operators: If you don't know what Transparency means, then here you go.....now how about practicing it?

    Transparency, as used in the humanities and in a social context more generally, implies openness, communication, and accountability. It is a metaphorical extension of the meaning a "transparent" object is one that can be seen through. ...

    I primarily play at Microgaming and am not in one of the 11 states, so the law has not had a big effect on my play. I'd like to be able to play at 32 Red and Intercasino again, but there are plenty of alternatives.

    Same for me. I miss those casinos, but mostly I miss Mummy's/Piggs and Global Player. I play other places now, just not quite as much as before (primarily because I've been on the losing streak from heck since spring).

    However, if/when NETeller locks out US players -- I'm done.

    UIGEA

    What a hypocritical law this is. Maybe with the dems in, and pressure from players in this country and governments of other countries, a reasonable solution will be found. When there is so much money involved, a solution always seems to be found. Time will tell.

    Angry interference

    the new law has required that I limit my play to a few casinos, which is not a bad thing -- I enjoy FL casinos anyway. However, If neteller stops taking my money, I will be in real trouble, because I do not know who else to trust. Hopefully there will be a solution soon. This is real personal rights interference.
