Atlantis Internet Group a Scam?

by Jeremy

There was some big news recently when Yahoo.com announced the arrival of the Atlantis Internet Group - a Nevada-based gaming operator that is running the first ever “legal intranet gaming platform” in the United States.

Supposedly, this legal online casino and poker room allows US residents to play real money games without worrying about the American government cracking down. Going further, this is a collective effort by the Coushatta Indian Casino (Louisiana) and Coyote Valley Casino (California) to bring legalized and regulated online gaming to the United States.

Seeing as how the United States federal government recently stated that sports betting is the only form of internet gambling that falls under the Wire Act, it would seem that the Atlantis Internet Group could be a valid business. However, posters at TwoPlusTwo think differently and some people are saying that it’s a stock scam.

Now this isn’t to say that you’ll lose your money by depositing with the Atlantis Internet Group. But several posters believe that this is a Cake Poker entity that’s merely designed to recruit more US players. As one poster wrote:

You could be right, when i signed up the site redirected to the site that cake uses for its clients its a dot UK site. That drew a red flag but I went on with the sign up process(since i was not giving away any card/bank info). If its a us based company it should have been a dot com. The “Tribal gaming network” does not have a web site that i could find or anything about them, another red flag. It make sense that this could be a stock scam, now that i really look into this.

Long story short, US residents and other people should be leery about the Atlantis Internet Group for right now. After all, there’s no official word by the US government on anybody being able to offer real money games to Americans.
