Blog Entry of the Month: A Perspective on US Online Gambling Deposits

Okay, so you might have heard already that the relatively young Rome Casino (powered by the relatively young Top Game software), was broadcasting that they were accepting online gambling deposits from U.S. players with American Express credit cards. It was basically all over the news. So much so, in fact, that it got back to American Express. This is where things get interesting. According to American Express, they have never, nor will never permit card holders to make gambling transactions, whether offline or online, using an American Express credit card. Now, whether or not they can prevent gambling businesses from doing so is another matter. What I want to say is exactly what was posed in a recent news article here at OCS. As an online casino operator, even if you know that you can process deposits for U.S. players, albeit a loophole or exploitation of the banking system, why would you broadcast this on the internet? One, it is going to spark interest from competitors who otherwise have no choice but to close their doors to U.S. players because of a lack of payment options, and two, it's going to draw attention from authorities. Don't get me wrong. I am definitely not promoting illegal activities. But you have to look at the larger picture. Take the UIGEA, for instance. It is clearly a mess of bigoted and ineffective legislature designed to protect land-based gambling interests and secure Congress seats that have been heavily paid off with lobbying funds. Finding a way to give U.S. players a way to fight back and secure their own rightful seat is something to be commended. Is it wise to broadcast this to the general public. Maybe not. In other words, if you're a U.S. player looking to gamble online, do your research. There are ways. Now, before I get myself into any more trouble (I'm writing this from a Guantanamo jail cell), let it be known that my views are not necessarily those of Online Casino Suite. There.
