|Playtech-powered XXL Club has become the latest online casino to ban US players.|
Their American operation was ended on Tuesday in response to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act.
Initially the company had been confident in maintaining operations for US players, but in a statement the company revealed that they could no longer continue their US business. 'Given the development during the preceding week, including but not limited to, the unfavourable view of payment processors, financial institutions as well as our software provider regarding online gambling in the US, we have been forced to cease activities and comply with this prohibitionist legislation.'
The company vowed to continue monitoring the US gambling market and will re-open the casino should a viable option present itself.
