OK so maybe Ronald McDonald himself won’t be there, but its always nice to see other companies jumping on goodness that we at Ninthlink picked up a month or two ago.

Quality Over Quantity – Why USA Online Casinos Are Superior

Back in 1996, the explosion of online casino gambling swept the world. The United States had been a large part of this, and many gamblers had turned to online casinos for all of their gaming. For many years, these casinos continued to be played unabated. Unfortunately, back in 2006, legislation was passed that made it slightly difficult for online casinos to continue to operate. This legislation, sneaked in by piggyback through the Safe Port Act, would be named the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, and it became a thorn in the side of the online gambler, the online casino, and all payment processors there in.

The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, or the UIGEA, had, in a nutshell, prohibited banks and payment processors from processing transactions that would correlate to online gambling. This has not only complicated loading accounts, but also withdrawing. While USA online casinos have continued to operate, they have had to use payment processors that would circumvent these restrictions. Sadly, the UIGEA was not even set to go into effect until December of 2009, thought the implications of the legislation had fall out that would be nothing short of catastrophic for many online gambling companies, especially those that relied heavily on the United States market.

Still, what seems like a pretty swell idea, or at least, a neon-filled idea : let your 80s inner child come out and gamble with Tony Hawk and all sorts of members of the VAVI community and, with proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The entry fee gets you Free Food and Unlimited Beer, there are prizes for Best 80s Costume & Hair, door prizes for the first 100 people, a silent auction, and additional winnings for the top 3 agen poker players. What more can you ask for? Check out for all the info! The word Gladiator is known world wide because of an epic movie. Well, if you loved the movie you are going to love this game.
