New Laws

On September 30, 2006 the United States Congress passed The Safe Port Act.

That measure also contained certain provisions known as the ‘Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006’. On October 2, 2006

Please note, it is with regret that following the passing of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act 2006 in the USA, Most Poker sites cannot accept players resident in the US or its territories.

What does this mean?
This means that sites like 888 poker will no longer be accepting real money gamblers from the USA and i will have to create a new section for sites that are still legally accepting USA players.

There are some sites that are still accepting USA players including Poker.com, Doylesroom.com and Absolute poker, I will be making a page about sites still accepting usa players soon.
