Thank you for writing to us.
Betslips.com is not a USA company, so we are not directly subject to USA government laws, but we will not do anything that we understand to be in direct violation of USA law. Just like other companies in the gaming sector, we are currently evaluating the impact, if any, of the new legislation. Some highlights of the legislation we feel are important to USA customers:
* The law does not appear to update the Wire Act of 1961, meaning that it does not outlaw any form of Internet gaming that was not previously outlawed. Most in the gaming sector interpret the Wire Act to outlaw sports betting only, which Betslips.com does not offer.
* The law has exceptions for lotteries, so it is possible that some or all of our games offered will be uneffected.
* The parts of the bill with the most direct impact seem to be the ban on using any USA bank instruments to pay for online gaming. Since Betslips.com does not directly accept any form of bank instrument, we will have to wait and see how Click2Pay reacts to the new law.
* Betslips.com has customers from around the world, and will continue to operate legally.
If any changes to our service or website become necessary, Betslips.com will notify its customers as to what changes were made, and for what reason. Until any such changes are made, please continue using and enjoying our service as usual.
