Typical in US ... double-minded people. I think there are a lot of ways to pay, not only via credit card. Don't be affraid so quickly ...

hahaha, I can support US government point in not allowing some scam operation doing business outside the law but they havent done anything to give online casinos window from which they can operate, at least not one that i heard of. So its really stupid situation, we dont allow you to gamble in some offshore casino but at the same time we dont offer you US based online casinos. Ridicoulous

Canadian Visa and Mastercard are usually governed by US regulations so it very probable that most of us are blocked with that payment option as well. Effin American bullheaded tactics.

Hmm, it may be will scare only new poker players from USA the players that have money only plaing poker online will find a way to make and withdrow money from poker rooms in theier pokets. At least a know 1 way for me, but it takes more fess and I doubt that my country will block play poker soon.

Many poker players hoped that Obama administration would be better for poker freedom but at least so far nothing much has happened in that respect. Politicians everywhere should understand that online poker is a good hobby for many people and a profession for some and we need reliable legal poker sites with large player pools. As in any line of business, competition is important, too.

Hello everybody!
It is still disturbing everything. Many government will probably imitate the American model as with many things. I fear that in France the law becomes too onerous, and we can only play between French.
See you soon for new posts! lol
