iGaming Business – Bitcoin gambling website SatoshiBet has announced that will no longer allow customers from the US to access its various services.
In an announcement on social media network Reddit, the operator cited uncertainty over the future of US gambling regulation and future legal issues that could prevent US players from accessing services as the main reasons behind the decision to withdraw from the market.
US customers that attempt to access the site are now met with a message that reads: “Your IP appears to be from the United States or another jurisdiction where SatoshiBet does not offer its service.
“You may not access satoshibet.com from the United States or any other excluded jurisdiction. Please contact us for any questions.”
In a statement, the company said that its decision to withdraw from the US market is not related to any government action or investigation and is instead based on avoiding any future conflict with US laws.
