Golden Palace, a leading online casino company, known for its zany publicity stunts and shocking purchases, is officially closing its virtual doors to its US fans and online casino players. Because of the recent legislation which passed in the US recently, the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act has taken another online casinos casualty. Online gambling companies are turning their backs on their US patrons out of fear that they will break the law by offering their services to American online gamblers.
It is quite a shock to online casino players and fans that have been loyal to Golden Palace. With so many contests, and its ever famous Museum of Oddities, this online casino was always a destination for many online casino fans and headline-seeking people all over the world. This news will definitely hurt many online casino fans who have loved Golden Palace for so long. It will especially affect those who participated in the various advertising stunts the company sponsored.
Casino affiliates have been informed that Golden Palace online casino players will be transferred to Golden Casino. Golden Palace is neither a partner nor is it an affiliate with this online casino. However, many see this as an attempt to use brand recognition to send online casino players to a site which seems very similar, until players use the software. The exact date when US players will be locked out of Golden Palace has yet to be released.
