    Hello all. I see there is a trend going on in here and a good one at that!:thumbsup:

    I too am closing NUMEROUS casino accounts as I said before and only keeping a few that give me value in playing time. Maybe if enough do this it will finally open up the casinos eyes.

    I won't go to the extreme of never playing at any casino as some have done, but I am getting close to narrowing it down to 3-4 casinos only that will get my money and play from here on out.

    I feel this trend is going to have a huge impact on a lot of the casinos bottom line if many of us start doing this which seems to be the case.

    The best casinos will be left standing IMO and operating at full run with all the funds being directed to them from the closed casinos...

    Good luck to all the casinos that are LISTENING to the players!:thumbsup:

    prolly so tim, but it may be more wide spread than that, just cause we are in the u.s doesnt mean another player from the other side of the planet isnt getting fed up with some of these casinos that feel they can do whatever they please to a player no matter where they may hail from imo....laurie

    Very good question - I know i'm down to 4 ( Inet, Sloto cash, 3 Dice and new rival absolute slots) I just got rid of my last MG Grand Bay - after reading Robs post.

    I know I cant quit playing because I love it so much - but I havent had any decent wins in a long time so I wont be depositing near as much as I once did ( my desktop was once filled with casino icons)

    I see mostly(or only) U.S. players complaining that the payouts have changed drastically in the last several months or so. Can..or would a casino target U.S. players only to fleece them out of as much as they can in a short period of time?:confused: It makes me wonder.

    Interesting thought there tim5ny! Gets the thought juices running, doesn't it...since you noticed its USA players (I didn't put the two together at all until you mentioned it!)

    Well, as I said, once the casinos feel the "pinch" even more , maybe they will HEAR us loud and clear.... :D

    Maybe they are trying to get the last drop before the law goes back to where it should be for online gambling....LEGAL! I feel the government is just waiting to put there ducks in a row including giving all US casinos time to get setup for online playing remotely etc etc..I believe this so strongly...why else all the stalling of making this law clear for everyone if not trying to pass time for something to "pop"?

    Now I gotta go dig up my post about that Tim. I said the same thing a couple of months (or weeks) back. Lemme see if I can find it. In a nutshell I said that I "feel IMHO" they are getting the last of our money before pulling out of the US market. It was then when I started house cleaning

    I totally agree with you

    Just seems a bit strange how us U.S. players seem to be experiencing very bad payouts in the last 3-6 months. At least we're the most vocal about it.

    I to have taken out all of the casinos. I thought about keeping my one and only MG casino but even that hasn't paid me in awhile. I enjoy looking at the forum and it helps to take the edge off. I know for some it only adds to the yearning of wanting to gamble.

    I want to thank all of you because I think if not for this forum I would still be spinning away. I now hope to save some of my hard earned money for a nice vacation next year.

    For all of you who think the US is getting screwed I agree. They want to milk us dry while they can. If and when the laws change here then thats when I will decide if I will play again. I sure do like gambling and it's not going to be easy..:)

    I so agree.:lolup: I also have been closing my accounts. I have 2 casinos I play at and thats all. I gave up on the rivals and rtg. Thanks to this forum it has kept me from stepping into a bad casino. Which I have done til I came here.:D

    I also agree about the us players. When it was ok to gamble online, before this crazy law they came up with. I cashed out large amounts weekly from the casinos. Now nothing! I have cashed out 2 casinos in the past 3 months, & one I will no longer play at. Not only bc of slow play, but their poor practices. But if we US players are lucky this bill will be reversed after the first of the year,,,then I would be really curious just how much their caasino games change.

    By the way THANKS EVERYONE! :thumbsup: For just being YOU!

    Well, I do feel that it is probable that many casinos are trying to make up their losses from having to pull out of the US market. So I think the drop in revenue is spread out to all those of us from other countries. I don't think they keep two sets of software for US and nonUS customers.

    Not anyone accredited here at least.

    I closed 17 accounts, kept one open, playersonly, I also canceled all credit cards, and all other means of playing, solid debit, togglecard, etc.
    My next step is to get blocked from playing...I lost a fortune but yet I hate to put the $75.00 fee out they charge to get me blocked from playing..
    Imagine :oops:

    Hiya Jazzy!

    I love you and you know that lol! WIth that being said, I totally disagree, infact I read somewhere (I keep forgetting where I put these posts lol) That they are actually ahead. RTG I mean. Why you ask? because most RTG's accept US players which means the people who were at MGs, playtech and other now banned US places are opening accounts at RTG's because they dont have a choice (or they think they dont) Business has never been better for RTG, I just wish I can find who wrote the stats and where to find them LOL

    Just closed my Rival account about 10 minutes ago. Down to only 1 online casino.This B&M trip reallly made me rethink things. Geez, I can remember having a notebook sheet of paper with all of my casinos and their account numbers, password and date of open and if I used a bonus or not. Now that I think back, it was crazy!!Who the hell needs 8 RTG accounts anyway:eek:

    So true! I too am down to 4, one of each flavor..
    Another truth! Too funny, it seems we are all thinking the same things....The four I have kept have all been good to me these last few months and are continuing their kindess in my withdrawals..why give up a good thing? :thumbsup:

    Good luck to all those that are downsizing their accounts and please do not be sucked back in for their lousy $5-$10 chip offer. That is an insult to us as gamblers in my opinion especially if you have been a depositing member for a long time. Hold fast and ignore them..they are not worth losing sight of your mission!
