Hollywood Poker Now Not Hollywood Poker

The following was sent to US online poker players:

Dear Quatloos,

The President of the United States has signed new legislation
that will cause HollywoodPoker to suspend accepting deposits
from U.S. players and examine potential offerings to U.S. players
that would be within the new law. Normal play will
continue for approximately 30 days while we monitor any new
developments surrounding this new legislation. During this
time you will continue to have the ability to access your
account as well as play HollywoodPoker games as you normally
would, with the exception of making deposits. U.S. Free money
play will not be affected.

All Non-U.S. players will not be affected. They will be able
to access poker, Blackjack and soon to be launched casino and
slot games, including progressive slots!

We understand that you may have a number of questions regarding
this new action, please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions
section on the site to find out more:

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your
cooperation and understanding. If you think this new law is
unfair please voice your opinion by sending a mail to your U.S. Senators at:

Or by signing a repeal petition online at:


The HollywoodPoker Team
Where the "Stars" Come to Play

I'm guessing they are going to have to change that motto to, "Where the 'Non-U.S. Stars' Come to Play" And don't blame the President for signing it! The anti-gambling Nazis attached it as a rider to a homeland security bill at last minute. It was either accept the provision to enforce the no online gambling law or throw out the whole bill. I can't wait to see how they intend to enforce this law.
