• The WTO Online Gambling Case has Seven Compensation Claims against the U.S.

    From one to three, three to four and now seven countries with claims to file for compensations because there is a disagreement for online gambling, how many more countries will step forward for their claim? Only time will tell.

    In the ongoing WTO online gambling case between the U.S. & Antigua and Barbuda, Casino City has confirmed seven compensation claims have been filed against the U.S.

    A Costa Rican official declined to offer specifics on their compensation claims, where Antigua and Barbuda is seeking $3.44 billion in compensation claims.

    Compensation claims made thus far, says an official familiar with the case, are by Antigua and Barbuda, Costa Rica, the EU, Canada, India, Australia and Macau. America’s decision to exclude online gambling from its General Agreement of Trade in Service Agreement (GATS) schedule is what sprouted the response of compensation claims from these countries.

    Japan has not put in their claim for compensations, but has lodged a letter of interest in the case, the official said.

    Quoted by the source; “It’s rather premature to say how things will proceed from here.”

    The U.S. policy is not expected to change from the compensation claims.

    This is beginning to sound like the gold rush in the early pioneering days of the United States. Countries from around the world are coming for the U.S., to stake their claim.
