  • I guess that was just some small Tom, Dick and Harry Casino type deal. A couple of guys with a couple of computers that said to each other; "Hey, we can use these computers, set up our own website, make a lot of illegal cash and pray we don't get caught. Oops, got caught. You know that a place like that is so far from any place that this US gal want to play near or at. No regulations, well maybe regulated to take in as much money as comes in. This type operation would really lower my winning percentage. You know how Casinos brag that certain machines pay out at 97.0, 97.5, 98.0%, and so on. Well, I think those machine do the opposite, they take in 97.0, 97.5, 98.0% Probably for the best that they were caught. If they hadn't been caught, they would give the legit ones a bad rep and make others not even want to try their luck online.
  • Silly people will do what they want anyways. US should open up all gambling again quick. Do it regulated like perfectly done in Denmark they showed good example of how its done!
  • This guys did not make anything bad i think, they just give a chance to USA people play good online casinos. This is sick that their government do such step when restrict casinos for them, and now they have only bad ones.
