Gamblers are turning to seasoned online casinos as they are put under pressure by credit-card firms who are now denying their online gaming purchases. Large online casino operators are responding to players' concerns by increasing accepted payment methods, and hedging operations against these latest credit-card developments.

The company made the decision to adopt the most modern version of PlayTech's software.

“Businesses that stay competitive, stay in business,” told Clarence Evans, Grand Banks Casino's Manager. “Our customer management system needed to be more robust to handle the increased customer base we've enjoyed signing up over the past several months. We also wanted to make sure that our new software provided a better player experience. The new software introduces $100,000 minimum progressive jackpots, putting it at the forefront of progressive gaming; as well as multi-player and multi-hand blackjack and video poker games.”

As some States remain undecided as to their future with online gaming, big casinos like Grand Banks are turning to highly regulated jurisdictions that are associated with European Union member nations. “We wanted to be in a jurisdiction with a world-class telecommunications infrastructure and a globally respected interactive casino licensing policy, so to further service our customers we have redomiciled to Curacao in the Dutch Antilles” said Evans.

Believing that as the ability to transact e-commerce becomes increasingly difficult players need additional guidance from their casino, Grand Banks will be expanding their hallmark M2S2 24/7 customer service to include enhanced loyalty programs and bonuses.

It has become clear that credit-card ban on net gambling is not squelching online betting, but is widening the gap between the major online casinos with the experienced management and quality software able to cope with new complexities from the also-rans.
