Online casinos nervous about US players as major controversies surround the industry

The recent decision by one of the top net gambling casinos to exclude US players (as reported in previous online gambling press releases) is not a consequence of the anti online casinos gambling moves by the US Department of Justice, but part of a longstanding policy by the owners of the online casinos firm, an online casinos company spokesman told an online casinos news portal this week.

The spokesman said that the decision to close US net gambling casinos accounts is not a direct response to recent developments involving one of the top net gambling casinos, but has been the long standing position of this group of online casinos not to accept U.S. players. The online casinos firm, now that it is owned by one of the top online casinos conglomerates, has had to come into line with this net gambling business decision. "We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes," the online casinos firm spokesman said.

The online casinos site is currently a licensee of a top online casinos gaming software provider. In the near future the online casinos firm will be joining an updated version of the Poker Champs platform. Both brands will remain separate but player liquidity will be shared.

The updated Poker software will maintain the look and feel of the old online casinos but will incorporate a number of new features e.g. choice of educational video content, player profile, player search and map, VIP club, new languages, bigger cash (ring games).

On the controversial online casinos situation regarding one of the top British firms and the firing of their chief executive, the Offshore Wire has published an as yet unconfirmed story that the group is busy selling off assets such as its motor vehicles in Costa Rica, and up to a thousand local employees are said to be deeply concerned about their jobs with the company, which lost 85 percent of its business through a US judges restraining order barring access to US players. Reports suggest that many employees are trying to find alternative positions with other casinos in Costa Rica.
Still, despite the controversy, net casinos have enjoyed unbelievable growth on the Internet in recent years, and this explosive expansion has come with much scrutiny and has created an incredibly crowded marketplace, as net casinos spring up left and right. But the current state of the industry is healthy and ripe with new developments and news. The industry is always exciting despite mainstream society’s recent reservations.

The latest research on the net gambling industry shows that there are still substantial growth opportunities in the internet casinos industry in months and years to come.

The study’s internet casinos growth prediction parallels the predictions of other highly regarded and dependable surveys and studies conducted about the industry around the globe. The new study estimated that worldwide internet casino sites and gambling revenues were $11 bullion in 2005, up from about $8.5 billion in 2004.
