There's no chance that is going to happen until everything is explicitly legalised and regulated. And that isn't going to happen any time soon. Sorry Ubetcha.

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

It is too bad. It is frustrating being stuck with the same few types of games to play each time you wager.

CL-Ed, I wonder why that is, though? I mean why can one type of game offer to U.S. players and not others? I don't think I have ever fully understood this. I understand each individual casino's decisions, but why is it based on type of game? And how can one (RTG) be fine with allowing U.S. players, yet not the other? I am confused, and I know you have the answer. Smile

Really good point Hope777.. It raises a question on how we've been discriminated for being a US player..??

I don't know the exact reasoning but I suspect the way RTG is very hands-off with its licensees has a lot to do with it. They license the software then take no interest in how the casinos are operated, even if the casinos are rogue ones that rip people off. The RTG licensees are trying to take advantage of the situation and accept US players when there is not a lot of competition. If it is ever regulated in the USA I think you will see a lot of these casinos disappear as players migrate to bigger and more well known brands.

Microgaming is playing a long-term game where they are trying to do the right thing now in the hope that they will be looked upon favourably if/when there is regulation.

Thank you for the LAUGH, as usual, Ubetcha. What would I do without you. You make me LOL almost every day. Wink

That does make sense now, CL-Ed. I was very puzzled on what the difference could be and the "why" of it all, so thank you for explaining possible reasons to me. I do understand now and it sounds very possible that is what they are hoping to accomplish. Smile
