    I'm really curious about this question, and would appreciate hearing from as many US players as possible.

    Personally, I intend to wager at online casinos as much as before. Before now, most of my time was spent at Microgaming casinos, and it appears that they will continue to accept US players.

    I would like to have selected "as much as before" but that simply is not possible because a couple of my favorites have stopped accepting U.S. players (Intercasino, Pharaoh's) therefore I chose "but not as much".

    I plan to continue playing just as much as before. It will take them breaking down my door and pulling me off the computer to stop me. :eek:

    Seeing as so many casinos banned us and canceled our bonuses (without notice) I won't be able to play as much.

    If there are any good casinos that will have me yes.

    A friend actually is thinking of using his girlfriend's family's address in Ireland for future registrations. :)

    I would tell your friend to be careful. It would be a big bummer if he had a big win, but the casino denied payment because they found out it was not his address.

    Due to really, really, sour luck, I haven't been playing as much these last several months anyway. I will continue to game online untill NETeller runs dry or there are no decent casinos left that will let me play.

    And I want to add... Online gambling isn't so much a part of my life that I can't do without it. I already play online less than I did, say, this time last year -- but this new legislation threatens to violate my rights. I, as an American citizen, have been betrayed. Yes, in the end, it all comes down to being the principle of the damn thing.

    As I've stated elsewhere, this rat is not abandoning ship just yet. They'll have to drag me away, kicking and screaming, with the water lapping at my eyeballs...

    I've only made three deposits in October and one of those was Intercasino right before their ban took effect. So my level of activity is way way down. There are much fewer promotional offers hitting my inbox this month as well.

    Anyways I still don't know what happened. Some say online gambling was not made illegal, but for some reason the casinos are banning us. And we're supposed to get upset with the government and speak up, but the casinos don't do anything? If they don't care then why should I? I know, because of my rights, right?

    When Firepay stops so do I. If we can't fund our gaming then it's over. So I don't think you are asking the right question. What I want to do and what I can do are two entirerly different things. I can't continue to play if I can't get funding or have a casino accept my bet.

    You know Firepay just sent out their emails that they will be stopping as well.. I still use a prepaid debit card that works.. I will use that for as long as it authorizes the transactions. If you want to know which one it is.. PM me.

    Thanks to everyone who responded to this poll. I can certainly understand why anyone from the U.S. would decide to (or in fact have little choice to) stop playing at online casinos with this new restrictive legislation. At the same time I'm encouraged to see that over 80% of respondents will continue to keep playing. Maybe that will help in some way to bring the departing casinos back to the U.S. market some day.
