    But shouldn't all casinos that accept bets from US players be rouged, since they're violating UIGEA? :what:

    UIGEA- does affect The United States but other countries has their own laws.

    Online casinos are usually based in other countries.

    I guess we need a US and an Int'l rouge list

    Wonder that percentage of online casinos would go out of business if US players totally stopped playing? 60%? I know that's far fetched.. you can't get 10 people do stop doing anything for any length of time.

    More like 0.6% I would say.
    Yes the USA is a VERY big country, but the total population is "only" around 310 million - Europe alone is about 731 million, before you start talking about Canada, Australia, Asia and the rest of the world.

    Since UIGEA the vast majority of casinos put much higher focus on other parts of the world and I seriously doubt there are many (if any) who are totally dependant on the USA these days.

    There are more than one country in the world. I believe there is about 200. So in that case, we would need to make a rouge list for all of them :)

    The case is, the casinos are located in other countries and are not under US laws (directly). So a casino may offer play to US customers without breaking the law. It depends on where they are located.

    But it also may depend on the software provider. For example, Playtech is listed on the London Stock Exchange, that is the reason why they don`t offer play to US customers. Even if the casino who uses Playtech are located in Malta or other places.

    Then I wonder why so many take chances with the USA players? If their loss is that small of a percentage then just dump the USA all together. I don't believe it's the size that matters, it's the amount of per capita income. These places may have more people but that doesn't mean they make higher wages..take places like Finland, Japan, China, Germany, Russia and so on...more people but poor wages so that's why casinos keep taking USA players.

    It is quite hard to understand, and to find correct numers for income per capita. But one of the best indicator is to look at the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) - Purchasing Power Parity (PPP). It is a bit to easy to say that there are "poor" wages in countries like Finland.

    Also, you need to take into consideration, the countries who are banned from certain casinos. I, honestly, don't think you can say the yen is less or the pound, when in all actuality, the US dollar is not worth what it used to be. If it was we wouldn't be borrowing huge amounts of money from China...JMO

    Sorry bout that rainmaker but the only thing that comes to mind is the wages paid in the USA. If we're not that important it should be easy to dump us.

    Why else are they still taking the risk of huge financial losses if the money is seized by the feds? QT (which I just found out) is not even processing under QT anymore. MCG made a second casino, RTG and RIVAL are processing under some crazy processing names that have caught me off gaurd quite a few times so I think it's time to really think about whether it's even worth it anymore.

    I'm tired of answering questions and trying to remember if it's legit or not.

    US customers are not important, I would vote to dump you:thumbsup: No, just kidding. If you see the US market in a isloated perspective, then it is probably the biggest and most important market in the world. But in a not isolated perspective, then the US government is very protective of their own gambling industry. Only problems for those trying. In that perspective, the rest of the world is a much better marketplace for online casinos.

    It is not allowed for a bank in Norway to transfer funds to a online casino. So I recognizes what you are saying about "crazy processing names". I did a deposit last night, and was transfered to a POLISH (or something) page :confused:
