After the UIGEA regulations went into effect there was a U.S. friendly version of Microgaming casino software created just for existing U.S. players called Level 11. U.S. poker and casino players were banned from the main Microgaming software. While poker players were out of luck casino players were offered this light version of the software. Typically these casinos did not accept new players, they catered to the existing U.S. players that signed up before Microgaming left the U.S. market. The software did not include games with progressive jackpots but it offered enough games to satisfy most gamblers considering the circumstances. Now Microgaming has decided to shut down all of their U.S. friendly brands.
This ban included well known brands such as Fortune Lounge, Riverbelle, All Slots USA and all other Microgaming brands that had a U.S. version. It appears players will be cashed out via QuickTender. I am sure the timing is not a coincidence. Between the online poker indictments and the lack of payment processors because of the indictments On Monday Rival Casinos such as This is Vegas Casino left the U.S. market. Now Level 11/Microgaming. I would not be surprised to see more online casinos leave the U.S. market.
