More urls and gaming operations were seized on Friday May 24th 2011, which we aptly call Greyish Friday. This time a leaders are not the only sites seized but smaller sites also. Even more important is many different sectors in the industry were seized. There were fields seized in poker on-line slot gacor, casinos, sports books and even bingo. This may send more of a message through the industry than Black Friday.
The online poker industry was hit hard and drastically when the three biggest players in the industry had their urls seized. This sent a shockwave through the industry and millions of poker players were left wondering what the results are next. What did happen next was that the three biggest poker rooms soon left the us market and their players were left in limbo. They now had to find a new destination to play and their funds were in danger. Although the three poker sites resolved a deal with the Department of Justice to return the players money, no one we have talked to has received some cash from them at the time this article was written.
After Black Friday, eventually things started to work out and players found a new poker home and continued to play online. Many thought the Department of Justice had made their point and were going to let things make contact with normal as much as could be. But with the action on Greyish Friday the hammer came down on the industry all together. The shock this time is in the form of all sectors of the online gaming industry. Homeland Security made the seizures this time and the industry is in disarray. No one seems to be safe whether large or small players in the industry. It’s really a matter of time to see the reactions to these seizures. Unfortunately, now organic meat see online gaming sites is all sectors start leaving the us market. We have seen some online sites change their urls to an international proxy as a result of these seizures. They seem to be positioning themselves to be immune from the government actions you have these fields not in the US.
The impression out there is that no one knows what is going to happen next and once again the online players may be sent struggling again. It a wristwatch and see attitude nowadays, but the impact could be far more reaching than Black Friday. Now no matter what size or small you are or what sector of online gaming you’re in, everyone can be carressed by the government it seems.
