Gaming Firms Flee US

Looks like they’re all heading to Europe:

Leisure & Gaming and payment processor FireOne joined the list of companies fleeing a U.S. ban on online gaming on Tuesday, as signs emerged that Europe is to open up its gambling market

What will be interesting is watching if the internet will do what it was designed to do, which is to route around blockages. Added to the mix is the US processing companies are going to have one almighty administrative headache, and processing companies based offshore would no doubt welcome new business. The supply of gamblers is also unlikely to dry up, just as drinkers didn’t during prohibition.

Game *cough* on…

    The internet works and particularly well in this case I might add. We now simply have less competition as less sites now are competing for these $$$.
