Well the largest online poker room has had to lay off 800 employee’s due to the passing of the gambling bill. With no longer allowing US players to engage in their poker room the poker rooms are now quite empty. Rumor is the MGM is in talks with Party Gaming for possible buy out.
This is quite interesting that a Major company like MGM is considering buying out a online poker room, but yet the US government claims gambling is bad and immoral? Was this the plan all along? Or maybe it is not moral because some other countries have been profiting? What the government neglects to tell the public is that the majority of the profits at online casinos and poker rooms goes into advertisement and paid to US companies. You have probably seen the ad’s on TV yourself. Things that make you go hmmmm.
