According to Matt Ross of the internet casino BetUS.com, the website has been getting lots of action from Iraq since January, and he claims theres so much volume that its obvious its not just American soldiers playing blackjack between battles.
Ross says the Iraqi gamblers are most fond of roulette with blackjack close behind.
He admits he and his fellow employees have bandied around the idea that the Iraqi high rollers could be using their winnings to fund terrorism, but decided that idea was craps.
As he puts it, We believe the Iraqis are simply enjoying their new found freedom and says that the number of letters from Iraqis to the websites Ask The Bookie column support that belief.
