Kubert and gambling operations were seized on Monday, May 24th, 2011, which we aptly call Gray Monday. This time that is a leader wasn’t the only site seized but smaller sites also. Even more important is many different sectors were seized. There were domains seized in online poker, casinos, sportsbooks as well as bingo. This may send a greater portion of an email than Black Friday.

The online poker industry was hit hard and drastically if the three biggest players had their website names seized. This sent a shockwave through the industry and millions of poker players were left wondering how are you affected next. What did happen next was that the three biggest poker rooms soon left the US market, as well as their players, were left in limbo. They now needed to find a whole new destination to play in addition to their funds being in danger. Although the three poker rooms exercised an offer using the Department of Justice to send back players’ money, no person we’ve spoken with has brought the money from their website at the time this article was written.

After Black Friday, eventually, things started to start a family and players found a fresh poker home and continued to try out online. Many thought the Department of Justice had made their point and were going to let things make contact with normal up to maybe. But with all the action on Gray Monday, the hammer came down on the industry overall. The shock this time is within the form of all sectors of the gambling online industry. Homeland Security made the seizures on this occasion and the industry is in disarray. No one appears to be safe whether large or small players in that is a. It is just a couple of times to understand the reactions to the telltale seizures. Unfortunately, now we might see internet gambling sites in sectors start leaving the US market. We have seen some websites change their domains with an international extension because of these seizures. They seem to be positioning themselves to be immune through the US government actions by having these domains outside the US.

The feeling around is the fact that nobody knows what will happen next and once again the web players could be sent scrambling again. It is a wristwatch-and-see attitude nowadays, though the impact may be far more reaching than Black Friday. Now regardless of how big is or small you happen to be or what sector of internet gambling you are in, everyone can be touched by the government it seems like.

The results thus far are that US poker players have never needed to go on to different sites as of yet, but new users may have to go to a brand new website address to subscribe. The same is true with bola88 casino players, there was no effect yet from Gray Monday other than having a whole new URL of your website to sign up.
