    Nice to see some states adapting and starting to allow. Not sure of the position of the new federal government of online gaming. States are in more need for revenue sources so this may help them change their minds.

    Do you have some problem in Michigan? So far unregulated US market is the best. Are you guys masochists who need part ways with their money? Or is this a Stockholm syndrom? I really see no reason why to cheer that we will see less and less money, until commissions hyperbolically approach 0 as on all other regulated markets.

    True. I took a look at the commissions on offer from the USA regulated firms. They have skipped the bit about ripping off affiliates after a couple of years and started the exploitation from day one. Read the smallprint. Stockholm Syndrome is right - I mean there are still idiots promoting GVC / Entain, so no shortage of suckers. But I think the positive comment was only for the backlink, at least I hope so.

    It's not like this is going to lessen taxes for citizens just because the state has a new way of earning money.

    The more regulated the markets, the worse for players IMHO. The governments will suck so much profit and put in so much red tape that profitability will markedly decline on a per user basis.

    As such, players will get less bonuses, rewards, VIP. Affiliates will receive less commission.

    We will all get screwed IMHO.

    We have bullet-proof revenue-share deals on online poker networks that:
    A) no longer allow them
    B) do not like winning poker players
    C) charge insane fees

    Interested in a sub deal?

    ... just some people will keep posting nonsense. I just wonder why.

    It is like Jews going to gas chambers arguing that it will be certainly great there.
