Here is a reply to your question on regulatory from Tom Hughes:
"Now that we are close to actually deploying the Shop While You Wait locations, we are focusing on finding bank sponsorship for gaming operators who wish to receive an ATM card with PIN payment.
"This is standard procedure. Mellon is approving Ladbroke but we need a smaller and more aggressive bank to start sponsoring gaming merchants.
"Remember, that as far as the United States is concerned, the transaction is replenishing only...the actual bet is placed by the player over a regular phone with the gaming operator.
