      Problem in the US is the UIEGA or whatever it is. Basically it says banks can't transfer money to online gambling sites or something.

      Hello DjAdolfMixer,

      Because of the UIEGA the Poker boom in the USA has been haulted in my opinion. Its harder for occasional players to deposit so they cant be bothered. However in Europe and Asia i believe its still growing and getting bigger. Just looking at the growth of PokerStrategy you can tell poker is still booming in areas. PokerStrategy now has over 2.4 million members (maybe more) and more communitys are opening everyday.

      Not only that but last week on PokerStars they set a record for the most people online ever - all signs that its definately not slowing down ;)

      Good luck and best regards,
