Are US Online Casino Players Slowing Down Their Playtime?

8 replies • Last post

Hi CL Members,

Since the departure of EWX i am wondering if anyone has throw in the towel with online gaming from the US? Or have you slowed down your play time.

I know it has become tougher on us all lately. I do notice that some of the top casinos i played at are not offering me any great incentives anymore. I feel like i have been kicked to the curb. I mainly used EWX at most casinos i played at. At some of these casinos my VIP status has dropped. Seems my depositing bonuses aren't what they use to be. Then again i never quite understood how long you could stay at that status anyway.

I did wait awhile to see what new processors did come out. I have dabbled with a couple of them. And just recently got back in the game.

Curious about everyones thoughts on this.

I have noticed that it is indeed very difficult to get money deposited or withdrawn. I know you had a great post in a thread I started a few days ago with new processors and I am trying to use them to be able to maintain an online identity with casinos.

I really do enjoy the online element when it comes to gambling, although I have recently gotten a new level of appreciation for the hobby as a whole and am not bound to staying strictly online.

These casinos will need to do something to try to earn US players' business, or else a big market will evaporate. Heck, the casinos are apparently profitable enough, why not dedicate people to making their casinos playable to US citizens and entice them back online?

Just a few rambling thoughts of mine on the subject...I gotta go take a shower (nice 12 hour day at the plant Tongue).

Believe me some of them are trying very hard to let U.S. players play online. Unfortunately its a constant battle against the banks and the UIGEA regulations to move people's money around.

I've heard through the grapevine that Slots Plus and associated casinos have sorted out their own private processing network so they might be worth a shot. They are a good solid RTG group, although they don't offer the ridiculous bonus offers that a lot of others do.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

I am willing to sacrifice the insane bonuses if I can just get a secure way to play. I just deposited my first check from English Harbour yesterday and am happy so far...I just want an easier way to wager. Love EH though!

I am right with you barb on sacrificing bonuses for secure banking transactions. I do think the casino are doing all they can. It's not easy for them and in many ways a risk for them as well.

I think in reality they want us as players more than we want them. We make up for a good chunk of their revenue and it has to hurting their pocket books.

Highroller, what are the fees/minimum balance required for a check? $30 or more?
