BetonUSA: US Business continues despite of Togel UIGEA
BetonUSA statement said, “BetonUSA and all our partners will be continuing business as usual. BetonUSA is licensed and regulated in Antigua and complies with laws within the jurisdictions in which it operates. Furthermore our company has been expanding by acquiring new assets and operations. Announcements will be released soon.”
Antigua-based online betting group BetonUSA has become the latest company to announce that it is to continue to offer online gambling services to US players despite the specifics of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA).
The company has indicated that traffic to BetonUSA casinos, poker rooms and sportsbooks has dramatically increased since the signing of the Safe Port Act into law by President Bush, which in turn set the wheels of the UIGEA firmly in motion.
Since then a host of companies, many of them licensed in the UK, have pulled out of the US market with operators such as Sportingbet selling off their US facing business arms. BetonUSA join a handful of Caribbean-based companies who are continuing to accept US money.
UIGEA has claimed its latest victim, PokerAffiliate.com
In response to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA), PokerAffiliate.com has announced its properties are no longer accepting US players.
The Togel company decided it would no longer accept US players after the passing of the UIGEA, signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 13th.
UIGEA: PokerAffiliate.com“As we have previously advised, on September 30th 2006 the U.S. Congress passed the SAFE Port Act which also contained certain provisions known as the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (the Act that affects the processing of payments between US customers and certain online gaming companies). The legislation was signed into law by President George W Bush on October 13th 2006.”
“We regret that the U.S. has taken this step to make it virtually impossible to offer real money entertainment to U.S. customers. It is doubtful that the U.S. authorities will achieve their stated goals by introducing such legislation. We believe that a properly monitored forward-looking regulation would be much more effective than this general ban.”
The company added, “As officially stated before we have been working on a technical solution to restrict all customers within the U.S. from depositing new funds at any of the PokerAffiliate.com brands. This solution will be implemented on Wednesday, October 25th.”
As a result of this new law, PokerAffiliate.com will no longer accept real money deposits from any NEW U.S. players.
“We will have implemented the technical solution to restrict all customers within the U.S. from accessing our real money games starting Monday, November 6th. After that time players will still be able to login to the site, participate in play money games and withdraw funds from their account.”
