The year 2009 saw many examples of Uncle Sam flexing his anti-online gambling muscles. It saw the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) poised to come into full effect, as well as many crackdowns and prosecutions of varying kinds.
With all this evil attention given to the gaming community, it is no wonder that the year 2009 saw many gambling centers and casinos pull from the U.S. market. One of the biggest, Golden Casino, pulled out of the U.S. market near the end of 2009. Golden Casino was under ever increasing pressure to close its operations to U.S. players or face the same fate as other gaming centers had.
While the deadline on enforcing UIGEA has been delayed for several months, Golden Casino’s new management made the decision to pull out of the U.S. market. While they cannot sign up any new U.S. players, players already with an account may continue to play.
All players will feel the impact of Golden Casino’s decisions. They have reduced the number of newsletters and the inability of U.S. players to make a deposit. They have to do business through Golden Casino cashiers. The casinos that have pulled out of the U.S. market will not be able to reenter that market until the legality of internet gambling is changed.
The real sadness to this story is that while there is still many online casinos open to U.S. players this New Year, there are few that offer the player the quality of play and the style that came with Golden Casino.
It seems like new online gaming platforms are popping up left and right, but not all of them have what it takes to attract the market’s attention. That certainly isn’t the case with Funbet Casino, with a lot of interesting things in its offer.
As a platform that doesn’t only look out for the casino players, but also sports bettors, it has a strong portfolio of entertainment choices to show for.
Set to be launched this September, Klirr Casino (a Pay n Play friendly brand) is the modern addition to the iGaming industry and an excellent example of innovation. The brand-new site will operate exclusively on The Mill Adventures platform, which comes with the latest tech solutions, security, and flexibility.
Slick and modern-looking, the operator is a new gaming platform scheduled to be launched in September 2020.
New gaming products are appearing on the gambling market every day, so software providers have to double their efforts to stay compatible in such a fierce environment. Some developers are always at the top of their game, standing out with their unique content, and Wazdan does that the best. The best example is its brand-new Buy Feature that aims to boost the player’s engagement.
