Bitcoin-focused online sportsbook and casino Cloudbet ceased allowing US citizens abruptly Tuesday morning.  Gamblers were made aware of this move only after being froze out of their respective wagering accounts.

BetDSI.com now accepting many forms of cryptocurrencies

One furious member of the SBR Forum website posted:

I have a sizable bet wagered and I'm locked out of the account. WTF?!?! I was prompted to withdraw my balance which does not include my .25btc wager. They didn't wake up this morning and decide to shut service off to all US residents. This is absolute horseshit. They should have had a warning on their website if this was something in the works.

Cloudbet has since told some customers that any pending wagers, such as future bets, will be honored.

The website is licensed out of Montenegro.
