|Online casino InterXgaming is the latest gambling firm strongly considering pulling out of the US gaming market following the ban on internet gambling transactions.|
The casino has been questioning the decision to allow bets from US residents since the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act was signed into law last year.
InterXgaming is a well known online casino, sportsbook, and poker room. It has announced that it will not be making any permanent decisions, and will consider its options.
The act is aimed to ban all credit cards, electronic transfers, and cheques to online casino gambling companies, which will leave a host of online accounts available for US residents to use for depositing.
Already a whole host of poker rooms and online casinos have withdrawn services to their US customers, instead focusing attention on other world markets.
'It will be tough in the coming months as most online gaming companies will look to Asia and Europe, driving up prices for media in those regions,' said Todd Wolf, InterXGaming’s marketing manager.
