    Question Do you expect a third round of indictments against operators accepting U.S. Players?

    Over the past couple of months there have been two major sets of indictments by the U.S. Department of Justice against operators accepting U.S. players and their payment processors.

    The first set of indictments from the Southern District of New York was made public on April 15th and includes seizures of domains used by PokerStars, Full Tilt and Absolute Poker.

    The second set of indictments from the District of Maryland was made public on May 25th against BMX Entertainment, Thrillx Systems, Doyles Room, and other sites.

    Do you think that is all the indictments we will see from the U.S. Department of Justice this year? Or do you believe others are in the works that will be unsealed as additional rounds of attacks against operators accepting U.S. Players and their payment processors this year?

    If you believe Senator Barney Frank, he doesn't think so. But he also admits to not having any inside information.

    I say unlikely. Obviously they have been working on this for quite some time and nabbed who they could. Hopefully now they will focus on the prosecution of the players they have and leave the rest alone! For now anyway.

    I believe, they proved, they cannot be trusted. If DOJ smells again money leaking, they won't rest until that leak is stopped

    Well I think that they will not try to do anything for a while, they already spread a little fear around. A know from a bunch of affiliates that stopped promoting gambling to US traffic.

    PD. Sorry for my bad english, is not my first language.
