Microgaming Happy to Stay out of US

As one of the world’s first and foremost online gambling software
developers, for years Microgaming has been providing its safe, reliable
and state-of-the-art online gambling software to a multitude of top online
casinos, but the multi-million dollar Isle of Man-based firm has chosen to steer
clear of the U.S.

Microgaming used to allow its licensees to accept U.S.-based online gambling fans,
but the seizure in September last year of a string of foreign-owned online
gambling domains by a Kentucky court proved to be the ‘straw that broke the
camel’s back’ for the online gambling concern, and it quickly pulled out of the
country.

The thinking of Microgaming executives is that they did not want to jeopardize
the company’s global standing by becoming yet another high-profile target of the
online gambling ‘witch hunt’ being perpetrated by the U.S. Justice Department.
As such, it sent a directive to its licensees to stop accepting U.S.-based
players.

However, while most of its licensees saw the logic in this decision, one of
Microgaming’s biggest and longest-standing licensees, Intertops Casino, decided
that the American market was too lucrative to ignore. As such, the casino
announced that it would continue to target Americans, prompting Microgaming to
split with it.

This meant that Intertops was forced to find a new online gambling software
provider, which it did in the form of another large gaming software firm, Real
Time Gaming, who is only to happy to accept players from the United States. At
the same time, Intertops launched a solely American site, Intertops RED Casino.

While Microgaming was not happy at having to cut lose one of its oldest
licensees, the firm’s strategy is to stay clear of America until the country has
resolved its current online gambling ban. On that score, there is hope that
under the Obama administration, online gambling may soon be legalized and
regulated in the U.S.

Currently Microgaming powers a range of top-rated online casinos that accept
players from all over the world. Some of its more popular licensees include
32Red Casino, 7 Sultans Casino, Casino Action, Casino Villento, Desert Dollar
Casino, FortuneRoom Casino, Platinum Play Casino and Royal Vegas Casino.
