Memories of bonus chasing

A long time, I used to hunt for any and all of the online casino bonuses I could find.

Before the UIGEA was passed, it was easy to hop from site to site, looking for the best possible way to leverage a tiny bankroll. I even remember reading guides which outlined ways to leverage the maximum amount of bonuses and matching play with the least amount of investment possible.

Unfortunately, for the past two years, it's been harder for beginning players to gain experience in that way with a cushion for their bankroll. It's harder for players to find a lot of USA casino bonuses to start building a bankroll with a minimum of risk.

Any site, therefore, which gathers information about the top online casinos, therefore, will see a lot of traffic. When they are put together in such a way that tell you exactly what kind of bonus to expect (100%? 200%? more?), ratings of various rooms, games available (from blackjack, to poker, and many more), and now, in this heated environment, availability to American players, that site will see a lot of business. It's extremely important, in this day and age, to keep informed of what going on.

Last week, the state of Kentucky, as I wrote about here, attempted to seize the domain names of several well-known online poker sites, including Doyle's Room. This case, to me, is a stark reminder of how easy it is to see certain freedoms disappear if we don't fight to keep them. There should be no reason why reasonable adults should not be able to pursue their interests, especially, if in this case, they do not pose any sort of harm to others. In this environment, any resource that can advise you of a way to enjoy your favorite pastime, as well as keep you informed of any threats to your interests, is worth visiting.

What state might be next?
