USA Casino players are facing a major obstacle when the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act) was passed in 2006. Ever since then, it seems difficult to find a wide selection of places to play at. This comes mostly due to the fact that a number of software providers decided to withdraw from the market and no longer accept wagers from US players. Microgaming, and a number of other software companies are among these, but as of recent times, due to resurrected anti-online gambling initiatives of the US Department of Justice, their number has been increased by various white-label Rival casinos. However, not everything is all gloom for US players, and they still have a choice of casinos that will take their wagers, like those powered by RealTime Gaming, BetonSoft.
On a side note, for all U.S. residents reading this, please note that gambling laws pertaining to the internet will vary from state to state. U.S. casino policies will also vary. Some US casinos do not prohibit any US citizens whatsoever, while others may prohibit residents in select states. In general, the State’s more commonly imposed with restrictions currently are (in no particular order): Washington, Michigan, Missouri, New York, New Jersey, Oregon, Wisconsin, Indiana, Louisiana, Nevada and Illinois, although this could very well change soon for New Jersey and Nevada - both of which are exploring options to legalizing online casinos for us players. Kentucky has been at the front of some controversy, however, this has not proven successful at the current time. Kentucky is currently attempting to seize the domains of several respected gaming sites known to do business with Kentucky citizens.
