    There are VERY STRONG indications that when the UGEIA goes into effect that ALL existing us players at Microgaming will not longer be able to play at the casinos.Indications include, pop ups to US players directing them to RTG sites and the ending of major multiple week  contest at other Microgamings. Though confirmation from Microgaming or any other casinos, I can tell you something BIG is brewing from past experience and i believe this will be the end of US players at Microgaimg, until such time online gaming is taxed and regulated in the USA.

    If this happens, (when), I am going to have sooo much more money every month..I"
    only play Micro and prob. needed this to happen so that I could quit. However.."
    I do think that the U.S should either keep their nose out of my bussines or tax my bets."
    Get your share of the $ that I chose to spend and move on.

    I play mainly at MG. So now I shall just save my money for a land-based. Will probably still deposit online. I do enjoy it so much more. Those other online casino's will be a thing of the past soon enough. Am sure VISA deposits will be a thing of the past also. Don't want to open any ewallets which most casino's are going to...

    Internet Gambling Regulation and Tax Enforcement Act Hearing Soon"
    May 07, 2010, Matthew Kredell "
    "
    This month, Internet gambling will once again be the topic on Capitol Hill when the Internet Gambling Regulation and Tax Enforcement Act will be discussed in a House Ways and Means Committee hearing."
    "
    No official announcement has been made for the hearing date of the hearing. A representative in Rep. Jim McDermott's (D-Wash.) office said the hearing would probably take place the week of May 17th, and that he had heard the 19th and 20th mentioned as potential dates. This will be the first time the bill, introduced by McDermott as a companion piece to Barney Frank's legislation, will have its own forum in Congress. Frank held a hearing on his bill in the House Financial Services Committee last December and had said he was planning another hearing probably for May."
    "
    Advertisement"
    However, Frank has shown intentions to hold a hearing on the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act before getting back to his licensing and regulation bill. Since that hearing, originally scheduled for April 16 but delayed due to a scheduling conflict for the chairman, has yet to be rescheduled, it's appearing more and more unlikely that Frank's licensing and regulation bill gets another hearing before June 1."
    "
    McDermott's legislation may have to carry the licensing and regulation discussion on Capitol Hill this month. Neither McDermott's nor Frank's bills could pass without the other. The difference between them, and what should differentiate this hearing from Frank's in December, is that Frank's bill focuses on the merits of licensing and regulation while McDermott's bill focuses on the potential revenue from licensing and how that money would be handled."
    "
    Whenever Barney held hearings, there was never discussion of potential revenue, said John Pappas, executive director of the Poker Players Alliance. (The discussion was about) policy of Internet gaming to protect against consumer fraud, money laundering and under-age users. We'll see a little of that in this hearing but I think it's mostly going to focus on how much money can be raised from this and if it's reliable revenue the government can use to fund programs over the next 20 years. "
    "
    A key member on the Ways and Means Committee is Eric Cantor (R-Virg.), the Minority Whip, who keeps track of all legislation and ensures that Republican members are present when important measures are up to be voted upon. Cantor is very influential in the party and, if he chooses sides on the issue, a lot of Republican members are likely to follow his lead."
    "
    This committee is not very familiar with the issue, Pappas said. It will be a really interesting day, and we're spending a lot of time between now and then to talk to as many folks as we can on the committee. We have a number of 'A' rated members on that committee, but most of them are question marks. We'll see what members show up, and who cares about the issue. "

    "
    I just found this. I hope its ok to post it. we shall see what happens."

    I can't play micros because of living in Oregon/Washington anyway, but I am really ticked off that the possibility is becoming meaker that I may ever get to play there again!!!! This sucks.

    Go Wild....just like when new games came out, they stated we could play them soon. That was a big lie. Maybe it wasn't support, but they should have been told....

    IMPORTANT NEWS ABOUT US PLAYERS 14 MAY 2010 "
    "
    Dear pamela, "
    "
    As of the 1st of June, 2010, play for US players on CasinoShare and Grand Mondial will be moved off the Microgaming platform and we will begin licensing software from a brand new software provider. The new software will have a similar look and feel, stability and most of the features you have become accustomed to, but with some notable changes. This change has been made in order to ensure that we are able to continue offering safety, service and exciting gaming to all our customers."
    "
    "
    This new casino, called CasinoShare US, launches on the 17th of May, 2010, and will offer players the same look and feel as the Microgaming software they all know and love, as well as all of the features and most of the games they have come to expect from an online casino."
    "
    When is this all going to happen? "
    All US players at CasinoShare will be migrated to CasinoShare US by the 17th of May, 2010, whilst all US players at Grand Mondial players will be migrated on the 31st of May, 2010. From a player perspective, the migration process will be completely seamless and won't be required to download new software or open a new account. They will utilize their existing accounts and their balances will be transferred."

    Wow! "
    "
    I wonder what the new software is. And it looks like that CS/GM do not want to lose the business they get from the US. Smart move? I think so. I wonder if the other MG casinos will follow suit. We'll see."

    Thanks for that post queenmap!
