World Bingo Network to continue accepting US-based players

10 Oct 2006

World Bingo Network released the following statement in response to passage of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act:

WBN still accepting US Players

October 10, 2006. San Jose, Costa Rica. World Bingo Network, operator of the world's largest network of online bingo sites, today announced that they are still accepting US Players at all of their network sites.

As many of you know, a bill passed last week by the US Senate relating to online gaming. This bill, the "Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006" is due to be signed into law by President Bush this week.

Many of the clauses contained in the UIGE act are unclear. The main thrust of the act however, is to prohibit US banks, credit card companies and financial institutions from transferring funds to online gaming sites on behalf of US based players. We believe it does not make online gaming illegal, nor does it criminalize US citizens who play at online gaming sites.

We are currently seeking legal advice as to the exact details of this new law, and how it will affect our business and our players. Until we have clarification, WBN will continue to offer our bingo games to all our valued players.

WBN is a vertically integrated company with proprietary software, a stand-alone operations division and specialist player acquisition and retention divisions.
