It looks like I’ve lost Crypto and Party, but Stars is hanging tough.
Dear PokerStars Player –
As you are probably aware, the United States Congress recently enacted the Safe Port Act which contains provisions relating to Internet gambling.
PokerStars has received extensive expert advice from within and outside the U.S. which concluded that these provisions do not alter the U.S. legal situation with respect to online poker. Furthermore it is important to emphasize that the Act does not in any way prohibit you from playing online poker.
Therefore, our business continues as before – open to players worldwide including the US. You may play on our site as you did prior to the Act.
PokerStars believes that poker is a game of skill enjoyed by millions of players and we remain committed to providing you a safe and fun environment in which to play. We value your loyalty to PokerStars, and look forward to continuing to serve you with the best online poker experience, as we have for the past five years, six billion hands, and 40 million tournaments.
Combine that with Neteller giving the feds the bird and today was a very good day for online poker. Â I’ve made more money at Party, but I love Stars best anyhow.Â If we could beef up the higher limit tables with some of the Party LAGtards, I’m going to be all happy.Â I made more money at Party, but their rake sucks and I’ve always hated their software.Â If they don’t “re-enter” the US market, I think they are going to be in serious trouble very, very soon.
