    Important information!

    Last week, the State of Kentuckey in USA filed a lawsuit to seize the domain names of approximately 141 sites.
    Famous Online Casinos are on the list.
    Even though this seems proposterous, the current state of the case is as such;

    Some Casinos already had to block accounts from players residing in Kentucky.

    The goal of the state of Kentuckey is seize the .com gambling related sites.
    No matter in which country they are hosted or the owner is living.

    On Friday, the Judge in the case have given 7 days for briefs to be filed and will review at that time.
    Until then, many online gambling sites have been changing their URL's relecting out of the USA like some are redirecting already to domain extensions.
    If Kentuckey were to succeed in this case, the 141 gambling sites with the .com would not be accessable if the .com originated in the USA.

    We'll keep you updated and try to explain as easiest as possible.

    It all boils down to $$. This Governor assumes that if people of his state don't gamble online, they are going to throw their money into the State gambling system. It's a shody attempt to raise revenue for his state and in the process take away peoples rights.
    Way to go Governor.

    Time to call and email your state reps USA citizens.
    If this man is successful in his attempt, it means censorship has won

    Gov. Steve Beshear of Kentucky couldn't get the 60 votes needed to pass the bill out of the 100-member chamber in order to get land based casinos in
    Kentucky (including slots at the Horseracing Tracks) so he goes after online gambling!

    Kotsy's right it is all about the money! People of Kentuckey have started a petition to recall Beshear and I think anyone and everyone of voting age that lives in Kentucky should sign this petition.

    Even if you don't live in the state of Kentucky, sign the petition to send a loud and clear message.

    Other members in Government will re-think what this Governor may or may not propose and support.

    The governor of Kentucky is trying to seize control of the domain names of 141 online gambling sites in a drawn-out court case that has been underway for weeks.

    The Online Casino Advisory is calling for a boycott of online gambling until the case is concluded. The Advisory calls for '...a boycott by all gamblers, civil libertarians, and concerned protectors of the Internet of all products of Kentucky, or anything that produces Kentucky tax revenue. Until [Governor] Beshear lifts his fascist order, every effort must be made to hurt the state's coffers.'

    The Advisory also calls for a boycott of Churchill Downs facilities, which residents of Kentucky use to gamble on horses.
