yes, this is so obvious, they just want to get their hands on the tax revenues and provide a protected industry for the US land based casinos.
I was thinking though, let’s say the ten largest land based US based casinos get together and through collusion offer a mere 5% affiliate commission. At first you think it is slack, but let says 5 times the amount of people in the US start playing online than before October 2006, then we have a market 5 times the size it was, which would be in effect 5 times thes 5% average commission – equalling the 25% standard microgaming commission before.
In addition, people might be more willing to play with these brand names and deposit more, especially if a) they know the brand and b) the deposit methods can include simply internet banking account transfers.
We may only need double the players before at 5%, if they deposit more and more.
It sill stinks though how the a##@## hole who tagged on the UIEGA got donations from Harrahs…I am just saying it is not all bad news if they regulate and license it, in that it will never be repealed and go back to what it was before.
online gambling activity in the USA which is legal and which we get some commission, has to be better than now.June 6, 2007 at 4:12 am #738925AnonymousInactive
