Surely, lots of people got a desire the year 2007 to not play a lousy trick on them. I don’t know whether somebody addressed the exact same wishes to the web gambling industry… But apparently, there is no-one to claim that the year proved to be particularly successful. Let’s have a review of what happened to online casinos and online poker yesteryear year.
The issues started even earlier, in 2006, once the USA passed regulations forbidding online casinos and online poker rooms accept gamblers from the USA, along with financial institutes to serve gambling transactions of American citizens. Plenty of casinos and poker rooms closed their doors to American players simultaneously, but so long as there have been establishments where Americans were allowed in, it didn’t seem to become a crucial problem.

In America a lot of people expected counteraction of Antigua and European countries through the World Trade Organization against online casinos, some people wanted removal of a legislative ban at least for poker, but these dreams were not fated ahead true. Instead, the Department of Justice (DoJ) moved aggressively against London-based BetonSports, which maintains operations in Costa Rica and Antigua aimed at U.S. gamblers.
WTO hardly trying to cover “the real face of free trade” awarded the affected countries “sixpenny” compensation, not in the least linked to gambling business (for example, Antigua was permitted to “pirate” with American intellectual property to the amount of 21 million dollars annually, although the companies’losses run into countless millions).
