With the advent of legalized online gambling in the US, that is having something of a negative knock on effect for many US facing poker sites that are based offshore, for many of them are experiencing a massive decrease regarding the number of players they have on their poker networks and platforms.
It has always been the case up until recently that offshore based poker sites have had something of a monopoly with US players, for with US States not being able to allow their gambling regulators to offer gambling licenses to such sites, US poker players have had no other option but to play at those offshore licensed sites.
However, those times appear to be changing, and as for example you can now player poker perfectly legally online in places such as Nevada, and with online gambling also becoming a reality in many more US States shortly, the days must surely be numbered for any online poker sites that are not licensed in the US but target US poker players with their services.
That isn’t a bad thing really, for by American poker players now being able to play and gamble at locally licensed poker sites and gambling site in general they will be afforded much more protection that they have ever been.
