The Future For Online Bingo Players From the US

With the current seizures of online gaming from the DOJ the US online bingo player has faced their fair share of calamity. It is an uncertain time that has had a domino effect on the player, operator, processors and affiliates. With the recent decision of The World Bingo Network (WBN) to cease all operations to avoid a US government seizure only escalates the concern of a future that looks bleak.

This is not only a hardship for Americans but has a worldwide effect for bingo players in narrowing the sites to play at. If bingo operators come to the same conclusions as WBN or worse yet the DOJ steps in, this leaves all players weary with their account's security. The US player makes up the largest revenue forcing some sites to close due to lack of funds. Some operators have changed their web domain from the US .com in an attempt to deflect pressure from US authorities.

Speculation at this point is all that is left. The US government is not talking and one can only guess what the future holds for the online gaming community. Gambling experts and gambling lawyers alike have their own theory for what lays ahead.

There is a overwhelming belief that the doors are about to open for the US online gambler and legalization is eminent. Predictions indicate it could take place as early as the end of this year or the first part of next year. There is already states that have prepared to offer legal online gaming to residents.

In the mean time online bingo players should not be in state of pandemonium. Funds thus far have been recovered through seizures and the court orders are against operators and not the player. The concern rests in who the DOJ's next target is and how narrow the choices where to play are declining.
