Microgaming Online Casinos Pulling out of US Market

Reports have surfaced that Microgaming, one of the largest providers of online casinos, will no longer allow US players. 

The company had previously pulled its poker network out of the US market following attempts by the Commonwealth of Kentucky to seize several dozen online gambling-related domain names.  Some Microgaming casinos continued to operate in states where the activity was not specifically deemed illegal. 

The move appears to have coincided with a crackdown against the three largest US-facing Internet poker rooms on April 15.
