PokerAffiliate.com to Decline New US Players
By Andrew B
The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) has claimed its latest victim as PokerAffiliate.com has announced its decision to withdraw its US operation.

The company decided it would no longer accept US players after the passing of the UIGEA, signed into law by President George W Bush on October 13th.

The company statement said, 'As a result of this new law, we no longer accept real money deposits from any new U.S.players.

'We regret that the U.S. has taken the step to make it virtually impossible to offer real money entertainment to U.S. customers. It is doubtful that the U.S. authorities will achieve their stated goals by introducing such legislation. We believe that a properly monitored forward-looking regulation would be much more effective than this general ban.'

The company also explained their technical solution which will restrict US customers, ' We will have implemented the technical solution to restrict all customers within the U.S. from accessing our real money games starting Monday, November 6th. After that time players will still be able to login to the site, participate in play money games and withdraw funds from their account.'
