    It'll mostly be casinos who are affiliated with sportsbooks you'll find - they need to protect their execs in all areas of the business in light of the US oppression. There have been two exceptions (Ritz and Jackpot Joy), but one is now open again and one is a temporary closure.

    Probably no need. Just write off all the UK bookmakers and UK based operations and you'll have your list :)

    Not bet 365

    Bet365 has to be my favorite casino so far. I like playing live BJ and have won some and lost more, but when I do win, my money is in my netteller in a matter of four, may be five hours max. I hope they don't scrap out US players.

    Wow. This is just the start folks. I have resigned myself to the fact it is over for me. Oh well, i guess maybe i need to get off my b.tt and get outside more anyway. It has been a great ride. I will still keep coming here (if i am not blocked) just to keep up with the industry.

    Very sad.

    Hey, let's all look at the bright side, we will all have the chance to watch these scum ridden casinos suffer huge financial losses. :D :D :D

    Oh, and thanks online casinos; I've made a lot of money hustling your bonuses.

    LoL

    I think it could go either way. The good folks will pull out of the U.S. market because they want to protect their asse(t)s.

    But the slimy scumballs will probably come up with new ways to bilk U.S. customers out of their money, such as the "phantom book" and "invisible apple" schemes mentioned here and at other forums. And if these guys are the only ones left that are willing to accept U.S. customers then they'll probably remain successful.

    Or, they could just wither and die which is what we would all like for them to do anyway. Then if/when the industry becomes regulated in the US the good guys can come back, and they'll have many more years of experience with the online world than the big LV/AC names will.

    This is true - no bonus, but that might be a good thing since you have no worries about wagering requirements. I play there often - mostly without the bonus, since I find it constricts my playing style.

    I would say that most casino groups will be coming out with a statement for players in the next couple of days. There is a lot of unhealthy panicking right now. For many casinos it's business as usual. Nothing is going to happen (if the law is signed) for months.

    I noticed from the posts that some players were able to receive their bonuses. I started trying 12.01am. l0/1. Only got an error message that promotion had not started or I was not entitled. Since I knew that I was entitled I assumed it had not started. No where in the error message or in the software did it say NO bonus U.S. players.

    This is what I just posted in the bonus Forum:

    I tried to claim the bonus EARLY 10/1/06. I kept getting an error message that said nothing about the ban on US players. I finally phoned support and was told no bonuses for US players. I asked at what time they posted the notice and was told 5 hours ago which would have been 9:35p.m. CST US. Oct. 1

    I had already been playing on the web site prior to the notice being posted on the casino web page. There was no notice posted in the casino software.

    I have played at the casino over 1 year. Rarely have claimed the bonus, maybe once.

    I asked if I would still be receiving comp points they did not know . They promised to email me an answer in 2 hours. SO BEWARE if you are counting on that extra money once a month to help cover losses!

    Also, I asked what prompted the ban. Support replied they were not at liberty to say. WHY NOT????? Maybe Casinomeister knows. He handles the casinos Disputes.

    I don't think they handled this very well. Perhaps it would have been better to notify players that October was the last month we would get bonuses. Unless, they are planning to ban play totally. In that case, the bonus should be banned at that time. They are still letting us play so they can make money up until the point we can no longer legally play but don't want to reward us for past or continued loyalty. The government didnt pass a no bonus law. I am giving them no further money. If they can not provide an acceptable explanation to their loyal players.
