I think they will go after the big fish first and eventually places like Bodog and such may find themselves treading water.  

I dont think smaller sites like Betslips are as well known.  Look at how long it took before Napster was shutdown but then a host of other sites spawned from it and only the big ones like Kazaa was targeted while others such as limewire were overlooked.  People always find ways around things.  Okay so they can monitor your transaction from your local bank to a casino site...but funding your Neteller, Firepay etc account doesnt raise any brows and there's no law against funding those type of accounts and they cant keep up with all the transactions from Neteller, Firepay, Click2pay etc and where they are going.

 

Sorry I didnt know how to edit the link above to have it linked to the story.
