    The following is a list of casinos that are not/no longer accepting US players. I'll try and keep it up-to-date. Excuse the "comments" - the data is lifted straight out of my CasinoTabs spreadsheet "as-is".

    IMPORTANT NOTE
    It appears that Microgaming have suggested their licencees no longer accept players from US states where gambling is illegal. These are: States of Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Washington, Indiana, Nevada, Oregon, Louisiana and South Dakota. New York & New jersey also appear to be on the MG list for some reason.

    Simmo, you can edit your list to encompass all states re: Palace Group/Fairground Holdings. Tim posted over at CAP this morning. It will be effective immediately upon the bill being signed. This one hurts, ouch. Until the list is updated, this includes: Spin Palace, Ruby Fortune, Mummy's Gold, Jackpots in A Flash and Pigg's (I think?).

    I thought Jackpots in a flash was only for certain states. I just deposited there a couple days ago. Also only have about 30 points to go to redeem my rewards

    It was. Then today they announced that their parent company Fairground Gaming, which unsurprisingly is a public listed company, has told them to pull out of the USA altogether. This affects JAIF, Piggs, Spin Palace, Ruby Fortune & Mummy's Gold.

    I'm guessing the minute Bush signs, accounts will be locked. They wouldn't lock the accounts before announcing to players as they would need to give them a chance to withdraw any monies I guess. So I'd expect a player announcement in your email very soon.

    Incidentally, it appears we have a company taking a sensible approach in Leisure & Gaming (English Harbour, VIP, Nine.com and several others etc). recognising that PLC's need to ease the fears of their largely ignorant shareholders, rather than drop US players, they are taking a different view. This is lifted from a post by an affiliate representative of one of the programs:

    If that comes off, very sensible and rational move IMO. Shame more companies didn't/can't take this approach.

    And now my favorite casinos won't have me. You'd think the U.S.A. owns the whole damn world.

    I'm really getting pissed off now.

    Ahhh, welcome to the club Mousey. I'd suggest any US player with a balance in any Palace Group casino withdraw it right away. The affiliate company has decided to pay September's outstanding payments over the next SIX MONTHS, to guard against chargebacks. I understand they're trying to protect themselves against future losses, but I'm sure glad I don't have a large cashout pending with them....you might get it by Spring. I could be wrong, but if they're going to delay affiliate payments by six months on money already earned...I have no idea how they're going to handle any cashouts. Especially if your deposits were made via Firepay, ECheck or Credit Card.

    I guess they will have to change their name now. :eek:

    The US doesn't rule the world.... YET! These casinos may ban US players but many good ones will still accept us. It is the money changers we really have to worry about :eek2:

    The Grand Prive group recently added an announcement while logged in to the casino saying that the bill only impacts 9 states, and persons in those 9 states will be unable to play at GP casinos. They write that they will continue to offer the usual gaming to players in the "unaffected states."

    Got this email today:

    Of all the Playtech casinos where I've played over the years, this one always paid me within 3 days, and never tried to welch on a withdrawal. Absolutely no problems with them -- ever. What a shame....

    P.S. .... Has anyone seen a statement by/from Global Player? I'd almost forgotten about them ....

    Hi Guys,

    VPL still supports US players, unless they are registered out of the 9 states mentioned above.

    We apologise for the inconvenience, but this was after looking at every way of avoiding it. We aren't exactly pleased either.

    Regards

    The first post has been updated including the VPL states no longer accepted.

    Schalk: Why is New York & New Jersey on the list? The bans aren't in force there unless I missed something??

    Guys, This is not in effect yet, and the account that was locked and the mail that was sent was in error from our call center.

    We are trying to avoid blocking anyone, but we will have to see what happens in the near future. At this stage anyone is still welcome in any VPL casino.

    I just got an email from Palace Group saying they are closing my account within 24 hours and good luck in my farewell gaming sessions.

    I thought they were originally only blocking some states. I'm not sure if Florida was added or if they are just closing all US accounts now.

    Anyways I am pretty much done playing online casinos as there are only one or two groups now that I want to play at and that will allow it.
