There are online Casinos available to US Players.

The Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA) was signed into law in
2006 by President George W. Bush, causing many online casinos to exclude US
players from gambling at their sites.

Prior to UIGEA being enacted, it was estimated that over two thirds of global
online gambling revenue was generated by US players. However, due to concern
that online payment mechanisms on such a large scale might be a money laundering
platform for the funding of terrorist activities, the government instituted
policy as a preventative measure against future attacks.

The new act resulted in a withdrawal of online casinos from the US market.
Playtech and Cryptologic ceased the licensing of gaming software to online
casino operators who accepted payment from US citizens. MicroGaming, on the
other hand, did not. As the dominant software licensor within the online gaming
industry, they continued to service US gamblers, and as a result, grew
exponentially over the two years following the UIGEA enactment. This ended
abruptly in 2008 after it was authorised that Kentucky domain names owned by
operators of international gambling websites were to be seized. As a result, US
players no longer had access to online casino sites.

There are however still some international gaming operators that are still
able to accommodate US players. They are reputable organisations with
comprehensive games software, payout facilities and bonus offerings, and are
powered by innovative developers the likes of Vegas Technology, Real Time Gaming
and Wizard Gaming. The casinos are listed below, and US players are able to make
deposits utilising Visa, MasterCard and Amex.

It seems that in the not too distant future, US players might have a greater
selection when choosing online casinos. With the introduction of Barney Frank’s Internet Gambling Regulation,
Consumer Protection and Enforcement Act of 2009, which is set to be up for
consideration towards the end of 2009, it appears that online gambling
may once again be freely available to the US gambler. Effectively, the
controversial UIGEA legislation from the Bush
administration will be made redundant following the introduction of the new
gambling bill under Obama’s leadership.
