Some Poker Sites Remain Open For US Customers

American poker players were shocked as they found out that they were no longer allowed to play in their favorite poker rooms beginning Oct. 2. Some of the online poker sites that have ceased operations in the United States are PartyGaming, 888.com and Titan Poker.

A bill that passed through the Congress in the late hours of Sept 29 seeks to prohibit online poker by employing a coding system which would otherwise make it hard for online poker companies to conduct their business with financial institutions.

The new law would not prohibit online gambling and the banking sector has already given out word that they would not be able to employ such a coding system for electronic checks, bank wires, and credit card transactions in the near future.

As the new law was ushered in, a number of big online poker sites have stopped operations in the United States including leading online poker site PartyPoker, which commands almost 50 percent of the online poker market.

Partypoker and many other online poker companies are publicly traded on the London Stock Exchange and has no choice but to abandon the US Market to appease their respective shareholders, as opposed to privately held companies who do not need to answer to them.

Some of these online poker sites that have continuing operations for US residents are MansionPoker, Doyle Brunson Poker, Pamela Poker and Canbet Poker.
