I didn't realize how much I enjoyed online gaming until it was denied to me

    I'm sure I'm not the first to think that maybe the Frist deal was secretly backed by US b&m so they could offer legislation to regulate (and control) online gaming. But here is where it might not work for them if true, an anecdote.

    I go to vegas and Reno as often as I can, a few times a year. What keeps that thirst or hunger alive? Online gaming. Period. Not the long forgotten memory of a good time, not the 'what happens' commercials... no, for me, it is the thrill of the game.

    I guess they'll get a whole new crop of marks if that is the way it goes.

    Damn shame, that's all I can say. I had my fun I guess, I just don't want to come in and do my chores now, okay daddy? :lolup:

    It was not secretly backed, Harrah's (HET) has contributed enormous amounts of money to back this bill and yes that is their thought to get into online gaming according to my source's over at Harrah's.

    I had mentioned this in another post from earlier in the year but no one believed me.

    Thanks for the info. :eek2:

    I don't usually come on board to a forum and post like crazy, but I'm just a little freaked right now. I didn't realize how much I enjoyed online gaming until it was denied to me. I joined up here to try to get some help with a casino who seemed like they wouldn't pay, and still might not. And, as a coincidence, after going through the 'document thing' with them; I tried to play at a couple of my trusted and true friends and got a bunch of 'denied' from neteller. i thought I was screwed, now it seems as if we are all screwed (yanks). I hope not. With C2P it may be a java error, with payspark I may just be daft and dumb not being able to find a page for new accounts. But I digress. It's a gamble, the whole thing. I have had my fun and will figure other ways to do it if I have to.

    Ii just don't like it. :mad:

    F2F poker to get me through the winter, I guess :)

    Cheers!

    Hi Lojo. Try sending an email to This email is not visible to you. and asking them how you apply for a new account. I'm not sure how they process applications now. I've had my account since it was Gaming Card, and back then you had to have a casino send you an invitation to join.

    Second option is to load one of the casinos on your computer that you play at regularly, and go to banking. When you see the Payspark option, see what happens when you click on that. I think you may be given the option of opening an account that way, but I'm not sure. And just in case you didn't know, Payspark works with Microgaming casinos only.

    Gotta tell ya, i spewed, but listened to the whole cinder song :) honestly. But that has more to do with warm lager than their talent. Thanks for the link and the sentiment. You are a kind man.

    Put it on a loop, you will puke too.

    Funny thing that night- no cops on bikes, no tourists, just me, my Baby and two muggers. A few blocks down it got uglier, but the camera wasn't out. Damn glad. Skeered the crap out of me.
    We holed up in the Nugget and whiled the hour away till we could get a cab back to the strip. A little more fun than i had bargained on.
    Gimme back my damn Casinos!!!

    you don't know what you got till its gone :)

    I agree with you RobWin, it is also my personal belief that Harrahs played a major role in funding.
    Everyone mostly blamed the Republican religious right wing.
    But, Indian gaming, and the NFL also seemed to be funding the support of the UIGEA inclusion into the Safe Ports Act.
    These four all gained from the passage of the UIGEA.

    But, the biggest culprit of all, is "we" for not fighting this when we could actually do something about it, except bitch.

    "We" as in the players, ewallets, casinoes, poker rooms, sportbooks, affiliates, advertising agencies, tv networks, magazines, etc.

    What "we" are going to find out is that it is much easier to give up our rights, than to get them back.

    Absoluetly beautiful bigwinner. Sublime.

    just the other day got... an Internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday, I got it yesterday. Why? Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the Internet commercially.
    Tubes, by golly, a mangled tess of tubes! Big ones!!!!

    I can't deposit at all right now. I have no cash advance on my credit card (all used up), I closed click2pay in August and they said then that they'd never reopen it. Plus I overcharged my netspend VISA by 382 and must pay that back before it is unblocked. I was so looking foward to using Instadebit today since I got paid and have a little extra money to spend. It was really my last resort. It may be a long long time before I get to play again.


    And new games are coming out in February!!


    *sigh*:oops:

    I think the ban on internet gaming was specifically designed for you. You should be glad that Instadebit does not work anymore. You don't have any "extra money", you have bills and debt to pay with what you have.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. If you have any cards maxed out, you don't have extra money.

    We must have the freedom to gamble and get into debt doing it. Our freedoms don't mean we all make the right choices. The fact the choices are there is the point.

    You're right, but I'm the type that can't sit by the wayside and say nothing. :p

    If they want to continue on getting deeper in debt, yes, that's their choice. I threw a suggestion out there, and if they want to check it out, that's great. If not, no biggie. :)

    I seriously doubt that the internet ban was designed for "people like me". If it were there would be no legal gambling at all. I don't understand how you've calculated how much extra money I have but thanks for sharing.

    It's no body's business but your own. Stand on a street corner - rub glass in your hair, jump on a barge and get your dose. This is the land of the free, remember? Home of the brave. Give me three cockle shells that are absolutely useless to anyone, anywhere, any time - and I'll fund your account on my new software that only shows a 'win' button when i feel like putting it up there. (you might have to reload often :)

    Sorry, unconvertable currencies are all we accept. Play at lojo's where we rip the other guy off and pass the savings on to you :lolup:

    Honestly, we just have to hang loose for awhile. In the meantime, we can pitch pennies at the wall (for heads, tails and closest) play poker with our buddies (don't have any? good way to get some) and throw our Lotts, Frist's and Delays into the can. Street corner craps are not regulated, at least by <i> those<\i> guys, and the rules are cooler anyway.

    Good luck, and the party's at my house Thursday. :thumbsup:
