It’s official we are partnered with APCW!

If you have visited Slots Jam in the past and read about any of the Industry Bodies we are members of you will know we are big supporters of the APCW and even have a page dedicated to the APCW and J Todd. As you can see by the photo on that page I have met J Todd a number of times and I can honestly say he is a very nice chap indeed, honest & genuine plus he has a real energetic glow about him too.

If you are new to the site allow me to bring you up to speed. The APCW has been around for many years and originally stood for The Association of Professional Casino Webmasters of which I (Andy) have been a member for many years. However after the passing of the Unlawful Internet Gambling act in late 2006 J Todd changed the meaning of the name to mean The Association of Players, Casinos and Webmasters.

Our understanding of the Unlawful Internet Gambling act is that it makes it illegal for US based banks to accept payments to Online gambling operators, although of course there are many ways around this and alternative payment options for US Players. No Player has ever been arrested as this law is not aimed at the players but at the banks and credit card companies. You can learn more about this bill and others on our Online Gambling Laws Page. Currently it does not appear to be illegal for US Players to play online although there may be exceptions at a state level. After the law was signed in many online casinos stopped accepting US players and we started our own page which detailed which online casinos accept US Players as well as those that do not and of course we also suggested you visit the APCW and Join the Fight on that page too.

PerspectivesWEEKLY is as the name suggests a weekly 10 minute video clip which is presented by J Todd and allows any viewers to keep up to date with any news relating to the the lawfulness of online gambling all over the world. Each clip always starts with a different person and has the slogan Join the Fight through the entire show, the idea being that if enough people get behind the APCW it will have more chance of getting the prohibition that it appears the current US government are trying to have with online gambling stopped and these silly bills over turned.

If my memory serves me correctly over 85% of US citizens polled do not want online gambling to be illegal and would much rather have the freedom of choice. Yet even in the US where democracy is meant to be strong this sneaky little bill still got passed (although it was very sneaky how it was tagged onto the end of a port security bill).

OK so back to my first point if you visit the APCW you will now see Slots Jam listed in the right hand column just under where it says WEB PARTNERS. This partnership is something we at Slots Jam are very proud of and we would just like to take this opportunity once again to encourage all of our visitors to visit the APCW and Join the Fight.
