Surely, lots of people were given a desire the entire year 2007 not to play a lousy trick on them. I don’t know whether somebody addressed the exact same wishes to the online gambling industry… But apparently, no-one can claim that the entire year proved to be particularly successful. Let’s have a glance at what happened to online casinos and online poker the past year.
The issues started even earlier, in 2006, when the USA passed the law forbidding online casinos and online poker rooms accept gamblers from the USA, as well as financial institutes to serve gambling transactions of American citizens. Plenty of casinos and poker rooms closed their doors to American players at the same time, but so long as there have been establishments where Americans were allowed in, it didn’t seem to be a crucial problem.

In America plenty of people hoped for counteraction of Antigua and European countries through the World Trade Organization against online casinos, many people dreamed of removal of a legislative ban at the least for poker, but these dreams were not fated ahead true. Instead, the Department of Justice (DoJ) moved aggressively against London-based BetonSports, which maintains operations in Costa Rica and Antigua aimed at U.S. gamblers.
WTO hardly trying to cover up “the true face of free trade” awarded the affected countries “sixpenny” compensation, not in the least associated with gambling business (for example, Antigua was permitted to “pirate” with American intellectual property to the total amount of 21 million dollars per year, though the companies’losses encounter countless millions).
