    Sorry, but I think I don't understand what you mean.

    When it comes to CPA I think it's worst deal ever and I'm not having it. I was talking about estimated revenue that depositing customer can bring.

    Are you talking about poker? Or, as I suspect perhaps, casino players? Poker value of $200 a player... I'd be ecstatic.

    That makes much more sense. Casino players are considerably more valuable than poker players. An order of magnitude more profitable if we're talking about losing players.

    So balancing the news on different forum threads, it seems the USA is opening (slowly) to online poker and the rest of the world is shutting down?

    I want to see them trying to shut down horseracing tracks or Wall Street, its all gambling.

    Agree!

    I take it you are referring to Pennsylvania opening up online poker. Meh. It could effectively double the size of the regulated market as a whole if they actually get off their asses and get it up and running before the next economic downturn. If they wait too long, gambling won't be a good political topic to push.

    The ROW has been cordoning off their markets for at least a decade now and maybe more. More and more countries are blocking themselves off and hoarding their capital and currency within their own markets. Unfortunately, this means that poker player pools are incredibly small in some places and thus, non-viable.

    Whole market will take another decade or three to mature IMHO.
