    It just looks like a spread sheet of some sort.

    I didn't see anything saying "Casinomeister" in the list.

    oh I get it, some guy (the one who owns the website) has a list of Bank Routing numbers on his site that he got from (the Federal Reserve?) and the American Bankers Association sent him a copyright infringement notice.

    It seems very odd, because this is designed to ensure that money is properly routed such that it reaches the right account.

    Now, it MIGHT have relevance to online gambling because offshore firms can work out the best way to route a wire to a player without having to approach the bank concerned, nor have the player pop their head above the radar in order to obtain the information from their bank, which could lead to awkward questions as to WHY an ordinary domestic customer would even need such info. The ABA probably want the requests to come through channels they can monitor, showing them who is asking for the information, and possibly why. If it can be looked up freely on a website, there is no way to monitor who is asking for this information, from where, and why. When used, the banks just see a correctly routed payment, and it should go through with no problems and arousing few suspicions.

    I bet the freely available "official" list is monitored by the government, tracking the incoming IP addresses of who is looking it up. This could help in building a picture of locations that should have no legitimate reasons for regularly looking to routing information, giving the intelligence gathering services a location to look more closely at.

    The ABA may well make themselves look foolish in pursuing this because they have effectively slated the official list as being "dangerously inaccurate" in trying to support their claim by arguing that they are taking the action in order to prevent outdated and inaccurate information from being used.

    It has even come up before with US players trying to get the routing information from their bank at the request of a casino, only to face questions from their bank as to why they need this info, or even bogus claims from the bank that there is no such thing, and therefore nothing the bank can tell them. This invariably leads to the casino having to stall payment, or to payment going missing when the casino tries to find/guess the information themselves. I have also seen other point out in such threads that the casino shouldn't even be asking the players for this as they could simply look it up on a site like the one above that the ABA are trying to shut down (or that the player could look it up where their bank isn't cooperating, and the casino refuses to look it up themselves).
