    HI Everyone,

    Registered awhile ago, but just now revisiting the possibility of gambling online.

    I've gambled some at 3Dice as it accepts US bets, but I'm not entirely pleased with their games. I am wondering if anyone is aware of IGT casinos that accept US players with simple deposit methods?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not yet I'm afraid. You can free-play on Double Down and soon there will be other free-play options but real-money play as still a way off.


    Welcome to CM by the way :)

    The irony is that IGT being an American business you can't play them online in the US only in land-based slots. IGT online casinos are UK/Europe facing as of now and always have been.

    Same with Aristocrat (PTY) in Australia and Novomatic (AG) in Austria. It's precisely because these companies are from those countries that players can't play there - the lack of local legislation puts them at risk inside their own territory should they not heed the law.

    Do appreciate the responses...thanks all and thanks for the welcome!

    I'm headed to the Stratosphere on 10/26 where they treat small fry like myself like gold. Love the comps they give me, never have to pay for my room. My host always takes good care of me.

    Do very much wish the powers that be would stop thinking they know what's best for me. And that's putting it nicely!!

    Pretty much.

    The bottom line is that all land-based game manufacturers do not want o risk their land-based licences by breaking the law in the countries where they have a presence. They are generally ultra-cautious in that if there is no law specifically banning online gambling but it is regarded as a "grey" area, they won't risk it.

    WMS real-money online games are limited to a handful of countries as a result (UK, Belgium, Luxembourg, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, the Isle Of Man and Guernsey - plus free-play is also limited although they do have a Jackpot Party Facebook app that offers games to a much wider audience.
