For example, the Poker Stars project. Having passed the thorny path of contradictions with the laws of the United States, by force of which he was taken out of the territory of the United States, he went with all his multimillion-dollar junk to the jurisdiction of the Isle of Man....Why is that?
When I used to play lots of online backgammon it was always interesting to see where the cheques would come from when I made withdrawals. Places like Malta and the Netherlands Antilles. The cheques looked funny and I would always wonder if they would bounce but luckily they never did. I remember the bank tellers confusing looks as well.

They sought to further the business and as they did not have the possibility of prospering in the United States, they looked for other favorable paths and those islands surely also provide an attraction for players apart from playing poker. Enjoy those beaches. Greetings!
If they are hiding from taxes in the Countries, then how can you trust these rooms?
It is really not a matter of trust. Well sure, to some extent it is. But other, even bigger companies do it too. They use complicated corporate structures to minimize their tax burden. They just hide it better, or at least, they are less open about it.
