Message for US Players
Please see our U.S. friendly Casino Reviews index page for an up to date listing of all the casinos we have reviewed that accept U.S players.
I am sure you will have seen on the news about the crazy US bill which Bush signed on 13th October 2006. Before I go into the ins and outs I want to make you aware that there are still a number of Safe Slots Jam approved casinos that accept US Players*.
In the table below the (red) column shows those casinos which have stopped accepting US players and the other (green) column shows the approved casinos which have stated that they will continue to accept US Players.

Still Accepting Not Accepting
Although it seems to be fairly well accepted that this new law is going to be almost impossible for the US government to enforce, the casinos that are either publicly listed or owned by a publicly listed company (and thus have share holders) are the ones which are choosing not to accept US players. The reason is simply because their share holders would simply keep selling shares (and thus ruin the companies) if they continued after this bill has been passed.
For the privately owned casino companies this is not a problem and so most of these are expected to continue accepting US Players for the foreseeable future.
US Payments Methods
Our understanding is that the latest law passed was aimed at banks and payment processors to restrict payments to Online Gambling sites. Please visit our forum to view the list of Payment Methods Available to US Players. We will endeavour to keep that list up to date and will add new payment methods as we become aware of them.
What you can do to help get this bill over turned
Sign the petition to Repeal Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act this was started by the APCW.
The APCW have now made 5 short movie clips which explains what the American people can do and how this bill came to be in the first place. They also now have a weekly newsletter in short clip format called Perspectives Weekly which you can watch on their site or on You Tube if you want to keep up to date with the latest developments. You can view all of this at http://www.apcw.org/law you can also see a picture of me and J Todd (the owner of the APCW) on our APCW page.
