Powerful Category 4 Hurricane Irma is expected to pass over or near the island of Antigua, which just happens to be one of the main online gambling jurisdictions.

Wagering firms Bovada, Winner Casino, Titan Poker, Titan Bet and Intertops will see the most exposure though Bovada does have satellite offices in other jurisdictions with all banking conducted outside of Antigua.  Service disruptions in the form of placing wagers ahead of this weekend’s NFL opening season are likely, however, and Gambling911.com would encourage folks to place all bets early.

“We’re looking at Irma as a very significant event,” Ronald Jackson, executive director of the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, said by phone. “I can’t recall a tropical cone developing that rapidly into a major hurricane prior to arriving in the central Caribbean.”

Antigua was expected to begin feeling the affects of Irma as early as Tuesday.

These sites are based either fully or partially operated from the island of Antigua:

Intertops

Bovada

Bodog.eu

RummyRoyal

Winner Bingo

Winner Casino

Winner Live Casino

Winner Mobile

Winner Poker

Winner UK Casino

Winner UK Games

Winner UK Live Casino

Winner UK Sportsbook

Casino Tropez

Titan Bet

Titan Casino

Titan Poker

Titanbet UK Casino

Titanbet UK Poker

Titanbet UK Sports

The storm could make impact later this weekend in South Florida.  Gambling911.com, which is headquartered there, has already begun making preparations to continue operating uninterrupted.  Its servers are based in Alberta, Canada while publishing will originate from San Diego and Chicago.
