Back in ye olde days of online poker (i.e. more than 18 months ago), I played regularly at a number of sites belonging to the Crypto network. Interpoker was the largest of the bunch.
With the passage of the UIGEA, all of the Cryptos promptly banned U.S. players, presumably - and I could be wrong about this - because their software provider, WagerLogic, was a publicly traded company.
For a number of months now, I have been receiving "player newsletter" type emails from PokerPlex, one of the old Crypto sites. I've hunted around their website and haven't really found a straight answer on their U.S. player policy. I suspect it's buried somewhere in their terms & conditions document but I haven't really been motivated to dig further.
This week, I received a similar email from Littlewoods Poker. I think this the first one I've received from them since the day of death. Interestingly, it noted my former user name and showed a balance of player points (MPP). Could it be that they've retained information on U.S. players in anticipation of re-opening? I looked at their website, and they have the following statement regarding U.S. players:
Littlewoods Poker does not currently accept deposits from residents of the United States and its territories.
Residents of these countries are most welcome to play Littlwoods (sic) Poker for fun.
Anyway, this is speculation and only speculation, but I do wonder if these are signals that the Cryptos would reopen in a flash if the UIGEA were repealed or watered down. I certainly do miss those bonuses.
