VegasPoker 274 (which appears to be nowhere near Vegas) issued a statement on Friday indicating that they intend to continue to service US players.
VegasPoker247 is pleased to announce that it's business as usual. VegasPoker247 issued the
following statement today via Poker Room Manager Nick Powers:
"VegasPoker247 is pleased to assure poker players around the world that they will continue to be welcome to play on our site. VegasPoker247 is completely confident that we will be able to continue offering our US customers the very best, safest and most secure online poker experience available on the internet, including the fastest deposit and payout solutions. All new and existing VegasPoker247.com customers should feel 100% confident when playing at our tables.
"VegasPoker247 wants to remind its customers that the Safe Ports Act passed by the US Congress on September 30th neither prohibits nor makes it illegal for any US customer to transact with VegsPoker247.com. Because of this, we see no reason why our relationship with US players should change. VegasPoker247 continues to run as always. We look forward to serving our current customers and to welcoming any new players who want to play at our site.
"All player's funds are completely secure and we are exploring every available depositing options with our existing payment processors. We believe they will remain unaffected by this law and will continue to operate without interference. The US Congress has no control over the international banking systems that many of our payment providers operate within.
"We will continue to update our customers as the situation develops. In the meantime we encourage our customers to continue to enjoy their experiences at VegasPoker247. We want our customers to know that our exclusive promotions will run as promised. We look forward to serving our customers and look forward to continued growth in the coming years."
