In an e-mail handed out to affiliates of Eurolinx Poker lately, the online poker room revealed that the Microgaming network would be rejecting users in thirteen US states from accessing their online poker or casino clients.

States blocked are Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, Wisconsin, and Utah. It’s nothing new that Kentucky is one of them following Governor Steve Bashear confiscated together with 140 other domain names to decrease competition with the state lottery and other authorized gambling. Though the domain names have not legitimately been surrender, Judge Thomas Wingate ruled that if a company successfully blocked Kentucky residents in thirty days, they would be excused from the penalty.

“This is not a new regulation; just unexpected enforcement of an old one Player is able to still play in the Sportsbook. Players are able to still register from the prohibited states, but are going to not be able to play in the Poker client or in the Casino. The IP blocking service Microgaming is utilizing also has a substitute detector, so players are not going to be able to utilize a proxy to conceal their IPs anymore.” It marks an unexpected devotion to the “rule” by Microgaming Network, whose online poker websites are 32Red Poker, Intertops Poker, Crazy Poker, PokerTime, Royal Vegas Poker, Ladbrokes, Betway, Unibet, Pokerwize, Doyle’s Room, Jennings Poker, Gnuf, and Eurolinx.
