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.
