Intercasino stops taking US bets
Intercasino, one of the oldest and most respected online casinos announced that it was no longer going to take bets from US players.
The announcement read:
“We regret to inform you that from 11am EST on 3rd October 2006, we will be closing all US gaming accounts. Player’s balances, minus uncleared bonuses, will be returned to players within the next 3 - 4 weeks by check and you will cease to earn revenue share from these players in the future”.
The decision came in the wake of the US Congress passing the Safe Port Act which also contained certain provisions known as the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (the Act). The Act will affect the processing of payments between US customers and online gaming companies, including Intercasino.
