In response to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA), PokerAffiliate.com has announced its properties are no longer accepting US players.
The company decided it would no longer accept US players after the passing of the UIGEA, signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 13th.
UIGEA: PokerAffiliate.com“As we have previously advised, on September 30th 2006 the U.S. Congress passed the SAFE Port Act which also contained certain provisions known as the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (the Act that affects the processing of payments between US customers and certain online gaming companies). The legislation was signed into law by President George W Bush on October 13th 2006.”
“We regret that the U.S. has taken this step to make it virtually impossible to offer real money entertainment to U.S. customers. It is doubtful that the U.S. authorities will achieve their stated goals by introducing such legislation. We believe that a properly monitored forward-looking regulation would be much more effective than this general ban.”
The company added, “As officially stated before we have been working on a technical solution to restrict all customers within the U.S. from depositing new funds at any of the PokerAffiliate.com brands. This solution will be implemented on Wednesday, October 25th.”
As a result of this new law, Togel Online PokerAffiliate.com will no longer accept real money deposits from any NEW U.S. players.
“We will have implemented the technical solution to restrict all customers within the U.S. from accessing our real money games starting Monday, November 6th. After that time players will still be able to login to the site, participate in play money games and withdraw funds from their account.”
