Pinnacle Sports stops accepting US players
The popular online betting
website has officially announced it will stop accepting players
from the United States. A message on their website reads that
effective on the January 11th 2007, Pinnacle Sports will no
longer allow any type of wagers from players who has registered
accounts with an US address. Those players will still be able to
withdraw any money they may have in their accounts, or balances
due. Pinnacle assures that players from Canada and the rest of
the world would still be able to place bets.
According to some sources, this move by Pinnacle has been
provoked by fears from the US government, and the 40% of
international customers would be enough for the online sports
book to continue to operate without any major changes.
