|Currently, most online gaming operators are located in offshore jurisdictions in order to avoid potential application of U.S. gaming laws. In relation to processing credit card transactions for online gaming, the majority of all gambling related credit card transactions are denied as banks will not honor illegal gaming debts. Poker.com Inc. intends to operate an online poker card room based in the U.S. and expects universal acceptance by banks engaging in credit card transactions with little or no deposit rejection. And just how is all of this possible you ask? Poker.com plans to develop the software to enable it to operate its own skill based online poker card rooms to market directly to players in the United States, Canada and worldwide. The software will be developed utilizing patented methods. |
The provisional patent application filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office covers a system of determining the skill level in a tournament setting for many different card games including all forms of poker. Poker.com Inc. will acquire ownership of all materials in relation to the games of Skill Poker and Skill Blackjack, in addition to the domain names SkillPoker.com, SkillBlackjack.com, SkillOmaha.com, SkillHoldem.com and SkillStud.com . Once developed, Poker.com Inc.'s poker card room will be the only online system of gaming with all operations including the game servers located on North American soil and operating within the parameters of legal skill based gaming as set forth by various jurisdictions.
