    I agree, but...

    As i know, many US players like to play Microgaming or Playtech for free. Playtech or Microgaming don't accept real money players from USA, but many US players know this brands, and they know that this is very good software. Because they know they free games. And when US will open doors for online gambling, this players choose Microgaming or Playtech, because they know this brands. And they don't choose WMS because they don't know about this games.

    I know, that WMS is very big landbased operator, but i think block USA IP this is not very good idea...




    And. As i know - in USA you have 1st. Amendment to USA Constitution, Bill or Rights and many other laws, that protect your rights to recive information.
    As i think, information - this is not only text. This is text, TV and all kind of information.
    When i play free games as "fun player", i recive information about game (lines, symbols, sounds e.t.c.). And why WMS - US Based company, give this information people all over the world except USA?
    Why i may play this game and recive information about this slot machines, but my US friend Universal4 not? I think this is censorship.
    Yes, i agree that WMS don't have a right to recive deposits from US players. But free games - this is a part of they sites. And if they give access to this part for people from Russia or UK, they must give such access to US citizens on equal terms. If US citizen play WMS games for free, this is no law violation as i think.

    Sorry for my English. I think all understand, what i mean.

    Well I am kinda torn on this a little because I see and understand their side.

    I LOVE to play WMS games, and I like them and was first exposed to them in land based casinos.

    I am not sure that Playtech or MGS would have such an advantage specifically for that reason when regulation opens the market, espeically if we market the games like WMS or IGTcorrectly.

    For me just hearing the Title's like Jackpot Party or Lucky Lemmings would immediately be a draw for me, but like I said these are games I have always enjoyed playing in Vegas or on my trips over to the Hard Rock in Tampa.

    Saying it is censorship is kinda pushing it.

    In your particular case, since you have all those games and pages up, you might want to consider a disclaimer or statement telling visitors why some of them will not work for US Visitors.

    I'd be happy to help you test any of them, just let me know.

    Hello,

    Apologies for not responding right away to this thread, our team were busy looking into the problem. There was an issue with the fun play which has now been resolved. Could i ask you to keep an eye on it please and report any issues you may experience? I do respond pretty quickly to all emails so please email me affiliates@williamsinteractive.com.

    With regards to allowing players from the US to play for fun - at this time we do not allow players from the US to play these fun play games. We do however regularly review our decision on this issue. When players from the US try to play for fun, they do get a message letting them know this. The message they get is "we apologise but this game can't be played from your country".

    Apologies with regards to the fun play games not working as they should. We believe the problem is now fixed and that the games should run smoothly from now on.

    Many thanks,

    Julia
