Why are online casinos excluding Canadians?

Im noticing a fast trend approaching.

With InterCasino, CasinoTropez, TitanCasino, Skrill and Neteller all closing its doors on Canadians, its obvious something is happening but i can't find out why anywhere.

Is there a new Canadian law? Does anyone have any news references?

Thanks

I'm guessing with US laws closer to hand, they A- dont need us and are dumping us, and B - covering their asses til we're on the books to please the US govt

If I were to guess, I'd guess it has to do with the provincial and regional lottery corporations being online or coming soon.

Even Virtual doesn't want us!

It seems odd though that these businesses would run away rather than compete. There has to be more to it than a simple competition between the incumbent operations and the new lottery corporations. It has to be a better business proposition to run away now rather than compete to hold on to customers.

I am increasingly sceptical of the assurances the Omni rep gave players in another thread that despite the "Playtech owned" casinos pulling out, they would not be. There is more driving this than the individual whims and policy rethinks from the individual operations, which is what Canadian players appear to be getting offered by way of explanation.

Maybe the Chairmen of Playtech and the casinos sat down and watched 'Southpark The Movie' and took it too much to heart.....:D Or one of them listened to a Celine Dion CD.

Tropez actually sent me an email a few days after the original 'we're kicking Canadians out' email and said they basically changed their mind and let us back in :rolleyes:
