The American online gambling market is still an unsure bet for many companies involved in the industry. Recently, many online casino operators have pulled out of the country, fearing prosecution for operating while the UIGEA is in place. Now, an increasing number of payment processors are making their way out of the American online gambling industry, as eWalletXpress joins PayPal, NeTeller and Moneybookers by no longer accepting transactions from online casino customers in the United States.
After PayPal pulled out of the online gambling market, eWalletXpress became a top choice among Americans at online casinos. However, the service was served a warrant by American authorities, stating that the company would no longer be able continue service. All players who currently have money in an eWalletXpress account will be able to request a return of their funds, and the company stated that they will be returning all money owed to its customers.
Unlike many online gambling operators who continue to operate in the industry despite the current legal climate, eWalletXpress has decided to comply with the law. This will put the company in the good graces of the authorities when the time comes for the legalization of online gambling in the United States, and it is hoped that eWalletXpress and other popular payment options will return to the market.
