poker.coms' stand related to US ban
The passing of this act through congress will have no immediate affect
on operations at Poker.com. We are not currently planning to close the
accounts of US players, and all funds within player accounts are
perfectly safe and will always be readily accessible. It is worth noting
that the act is primarily related to financial transactions between
gaming businesses and banks and no penalties have been introduced to to
discourage individual citizens who wish to play poker online. We will
continually monitor the legislative changes and obtain detailed legal
advice on this situation, but for now it is business as usual.
As far as we are concerned our operations are 100% legal under
international law and we follow all laws of the jurisdictions in which
our operations reside.
At the moment we encourage all Poker.com members to join the Poker
Players Alliance, and to contact your government representatives to
voice your opinion on the potential Internet Gambling Prohibition law.
Have fun & good luck,
