Is Rome Casino in trouble with Amex?

US card giant emphasises that it will not accept online gambling charges

What appears to be a premature announcement from Top Game-powered online casino Rome has triggered a tough response from the US card giant American Express. The reaction came after persistent stories that Rome Casino had in some way found a way of accepting Amex card deposits.

The company issued a statement through Vice-President Corporate Affairs And Communications Christine Elliott, leaving players in no doubt about the card firm's position.

“It is a long-standing policy that American Express cards cannot be accepted for gambling; either online or offline and that is no exception,” said Elliot.

“Any merchant found to be in violation of this policy is terminated immediately from card acceptance. As a matter of fact, American Express has sent legal notification to that it is not authorised to accept the American Express Card and is not authorised to use our trademarks.”
