Intercontinental Out of America
By James Mc
Responding to approval of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, Intercontinental Online Gaming has announced that it is to join the plethora of companies who are no longer accepting players located in the United States.

In a statement to its marketing affiliates, the company stated, “Due to the recent enactment of the Federal 'Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act' in the United States Senate on September 30, 2006, IOG Casinos are sad to announce that effective from today, Friday 13 October, we will no longer be able to accept any new US based players, and that those US players already enjoying our services will no longer be able to wager and deposit at any of our clients.”

IOG casinos is now concentrating its business on the non-US English speaking arena and mainland Europe, having already translated many of its sites into French, Spanish, German, Swedish and Russian as well as Chinese and Japanese.

The statement continued, “With the possibility of legislation in the US hanging over our heads for many years, IOG Casinos foresaw possible issues arising from this and are already a market leader in the non-US arena.”
