It seems that we’re hearing good news in regards to online casinos that had removed themselves from the USA market after the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act). This time, it’s PartyGaming that’s in the news, and it’s looking more and more hopeful that they’ll re-enter the USA market in the near future.
Anurag Dikshit, one of PartyGaming‘s founders, plead guilty to online gambling charges, which the USA said were in violation of the Wire Act. He is currently free on a $50 million bond, and is ordered to pay $300 million in fines.
Martin Weigold, PartyGaming‘s finance director, doesn’t see any criminial charges being brought against the company, but are also expected to be fined as well. The amount hasn’t been disclosed yet, but analyists expect the amount to be much less than those paid by Anurag Dikshit.
Either way, things are looking up for PartyGaming and other providers to re-enter the USA market. Hopefully it’s sooner rather than later.
