Update: Pinnacle Sports No Longer US-Friendly

After the Queen's District Attorney's Office saw 25 Americans arrested across 5 different States due to illegal sports betting, including Brandt England, George Molsbarger and Stanley Tomchin who reportedly have ownership interests in Pinnacle Sports' offshore online sports book, an announcement came from Pinnacle Sports regarding its position on accepting US action.

The company sent an email to its customers, notifying them that as of November 19, 2012 it will automatically block access to its site from all US-based IP addresses, adding that it has introduced improved geo-location technology which will help it achieve this.

In its notice to its customer, the company said: "Since January 2007 it has been our intention to not accept wagers from the United States.

"We had taken several measures to assist with this initiative in addition to diligently enforcing country of origin upon account creation. We are now investing in technology to assure that logins into our system do not occur from undesirable jurisdictions."

In addition, the company specified that it requests proof of residency in the form of an ID, passport or driver's licence as well as a current utility bill as proof of address. Finally, it called on everyone who does not comply with its conditions to request a withdrawal of their funds before November 19, saying: "Any pending plays in your account will have action. Once graded, you may return to your account to request any remaining balance. Our normal withdrawal policies will apply."
