    I hadn't heard this until I watched Perspectives Weekly... does anyone have any updates on that? That would be pretty big news.

    I spoke to three Micro AffManagers about it, and this is what they said (in the order that I asked):

    #1) "Yea... Micro will be out of the US in three... tops five... days."

    #2) "What? No way, man... Micro's not going anywhere."

    #3) "Ive heard similar rumors. We'll have to see this week what happens."

    So that's definately maybe... I'd guess they'd almost have to, but we'll see if there is any news in t-minus 4 days.

    Just be patient guys, Harrah's will be taking care of our online gaming sooner than you know...just wait and see !

    We want have to deal with all these crazy terms and conditions then either because they will be holding out federal taxes on our winnings.

    There will be caps placed on your weekly deposits based on what level of player you are with them at their land based casinos.

    You won't have to worry about bonuses soflat, there are plenty of great Comps including Cash Comps that do not have any restrictions on them. The more you play there the more you will earn.

    Perhaps we should be asking J.Todd at Perspectives exactly where this information came from and if he has attempted to verify it with Microgaming,s PR agency in London or the corporate head office in the Isle of Man before publishing?

    Since when has one of these companies informed players and the press in advance. Why would MG be any different? The only safe move for US players would to be to leave nothing on account overnight at an MG casino until more than a week has passed, by which time the rumour will be validated, or prove to be untrue (for now).
    I see S Korea are now going after online gaming operators, so that Cryptologic in the frame who quickly locked US accounts where legailty is still in dispute, but happily take Korean players where it is illegal, but few players are aware of this. I expect other governments will jump on the bandwagon and crack down while the industry is severely weakened, and the likelihood of success is greatest.

    It is a matter of professionally checking out a rumour that could cause alarm and possibly damage before publicising it.

    For all I know the Perspectives editor may have done that, in which case if he received no official response from MGS itself he should have noted that.

    If this turns out to be another unsubstantiated story, then I hope that the author of the Perspectives piece will be the first to apologise to posters and readers here for publishing unconfirmed rumours nd causing concern.

    I think Rob has an interesting point myself - ok it may not be soon, and how it would operate is not clear, but I think it's in the pipeline myself. Not a bad thing though.

    Agree 100%, with the above statement.

    But in these fluid times, we players come to these message boards seeking information. This information could have a huge bearing on players with pending bonuses with WR left on their accounts. Or balances left in MGS accounts, while the ewallet issues get figured out.

    Before NETeller left the US. Most players figured that was a safe / liquid place to store funds. Those players are now feelling very different about the safety of their NETeller funds.

    Once the operators close markets, the market closure procedures used, seem to protect the operators best interests first, not their former customers, who they will no longer serve. The players are left waiting for snail mail balances to arrive at the casinoes convenience. Alot of times months after the market was closed, to the former customers.

    J.Todd at Perspectives, never seemed to imply this as 'fact', only a 'rumor', of a possible MGS US pullout. The people that would be affected by this pullout are left to use this information at their discretion.

    My personal opinion is that the US big names will enter this market - they can't leave a $6 billion and potential business just lying around on their doorstep.

    The only question is how long will it take them to un-fcuk the Frist mess so that they can get into the US market.

    And I agree with Simmo that it will probably be a good thing for US players - I have made that comment in another thread recently btw.
