Echeck is nothing but an EFT.  See EFT's above.

My guess is that they will be back up in a couple of days.  Maybe even to US customers.  Either way, I would say the chances are slim and none that you will have any of your money stolen.
 
They are a big reputable public company that is not in any legal trouble.

The passing of this bill might end up even being a somewhat good thing. There has been no clarification on the Wire Act, and that is a very, very good thing. These jokes that call themselves senators (aka Frist) will claim to have 'solved internet gambling' and all the blind person that follow them will eat it up. Meanwhile we can continue betting on those Hawaii late night overs...
 
The longer attention is diverted from the Wire Act, the longer Van doesn't have to go back to work for the MAN.
 
We should be helping people like NROG or organizations like that to further insure that the Wire Act is never adjusted. That should be online gamblers main concern.

As an Internet site owner that in the past has accepted offshore gaming sponsorship all I can tell you is what my attorney advised me as a US citizen and I intend to follow his advice to the letter.
 
Close my site and go back to providing informational services only.
 
Ill see all you guys back in Vegas.Hahaha

The fact that tout scum like you have to shut your sites down could possibly be the silver lining in all of this.
 
I hope you rot.

That is bullshit.  It is not the end of internet gambling.  It is a weak bill passed for political gain - thats it.  They couldnt pass the tough bills so they passed this piece of garbage so they could tell the people in Kansas that Jesus loves them and so do I - Im fighting for your morality.
 
End of story.  Save the crying wolf for someone else.
 
Ur right vanzak this news came out on sept29th that they will pass it. But 1 thing i dont like is that Sen.Frist couldnt get this passed before so he put it on the Port Bill wich should be and will be signed. Bush is taking the blame but in reality its that jackass Sen.Frist. And i use V.I.P sportsbook and many in here use Penny and BetCris and nobody has had a problem with those books. I suggest using a top notch sportsbook stay away from sportbook.com and bet365 and others. WWW.SPORTSBOOKREVIEW.COM  heres a site to check for the top books.

Radio talk show host here in Tampa related a story about this fool Frist getting campaign contributions from the boys in Vegas (not sure which outfit). Won't be long before it's all legal in the states and taxable. If you're smart you may want to invest your excess gambling winnings in gaming industry stocks because it's coming soon.

Vanzack I just hate that the 900 members I had now have to come here to read the total BULLS**T you and you 100 alias spout all over this forum.
Hell maybe they will make a law that you can only have 1 user name on a forum?Now wouldnt that be special. Damn maybe then you would have to go out in the real world and make some real freinds.
 
No I can tell by your posts you already tried that and it didnt work.Sorry Hahahha
 
When you get thru preaching to anyone that will read your horses**t remember this.When the negative publicity starts on WalMart and drives the price down to the low 40s its time to start buying on the downward slide and that is NOW.When it goes back up to around 49-50 sell.Hahahaha

Quickly solidifying yourself as a bonafide Cover's douchebag buddywrong. Telling someone to go out and make friends...sheesh...that's SO witty I don't even know what to say. Keep up the good work

SPORTSBOOK.COM STILL ACCEPTS US CUSTOMERS. THE COMPANY SOLD THE SPORTSBOOK TO PRIVATE MANAGEMENT SO NOTHING HAS CHANGED FOR THOSE WHO HAVE SPORTSBOOK.COM.
 
SPORTSBOOK, IN MY OPINION, IS STILL ONE OF THE TOP SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ALLOW 4 FREE WITHDRAWALS WITHOUT FEES, AND THEY DON'T GIVE A DUMB 5% BONUS LIKE BODOG OR SOME OTHER BOOKS DO, REQUIRING YOU TO ROLLOVER THE DEPOSIT 5 OR MORE TIMES JUST TO WITHDRAW.

I've been with WWTS for like 6 or 7 years and I am very pissed that they didn't give us warning that they might freeze the accounts.
I have a grand in there, and I don't think I will ever see it again.
darn our President and the usless scumbag senate. Just a bunch of useless, ancient old, elephant grey almost deadfucks trying to tell us how to live our lives.
