Microgaming Pulls Plug On American Online Casino Fans

Two Friday’s ago, the U.S. Department of Justice seized three leading online poker sites and issued arrest warrants for 11 executives allegedly linked to illegal online gambling practices in what has since been labeled as ‘Black Friday,’ an action that has had an enormous knock-on effect for U.S. online casino fans.

While initially U.S. online casino fans thanked their lucky stars that the Department of Justice seemed only interested in going after online poker rooms, now their favorite internet activity has also been severely curtailed with the recent news that all Microgaming-powered online casinos have pulled the plug on U.S. players.

To avoid the unwanted attentions of the Department of Justice, many leading online gambling operations are in the process of pulling out of the highly lucrative American online gambling market, including Microgaming, which boasts many of the world’s and indeed America’s favourite online casinos, such as All Slots Casino.

After the infamous Kentucky domain seizure in 2008, many Microgaming casinos pulled out of the U.S. market completely, while others continued to accept players from states in which online gambling was not unequivocally illegal, while others still continued to operate as usual, but only servicing existing, not new, players.

Now however, all Microgaming online casinos will cease to have any further dealings with players in the U.S., which will leave a massive void for U.S. online casino fans, especially since fewer and fewer online gambling operations are willing to risk the wrath of the Department of Justice, whose bite is worse than its bark.

U.S. players who once enjoyed playing at the likes of All Jackpots Casino, Maple Casino, River Belle Casino, Rich Reels Casino, Villento Casino and many more top-rated Microgaming online casinos, can no longer. The silver lining – if there is one – is that the casinos have endeavored to refund players in due course.
