Can we get a confirmation on this? Not sure whether this is real or if that account was compromised.

Agreed, this could possibly be a phisher manipulating shares down to  buy them up cheap

No sense in shares down either.
blocking ip to website doesn't stop people from using satoshi dice in anyway.

Hmm it is the official account I think
Whatever buys in on the panic I'll take the hit if this is legit instead of a hacked account haven't seen prices drop like this since Btc was at 250
If it is legit then hot damn well the US is a big market but I think the world is too and proxys lol

Yep well if it is true I think the market made a fair deduction sort of well yes the US is gone from site access but as reddit points out
The addresses don't change so bought in if it's timed with btct.co going down for a bit there due to DDOS
You don't even need a proxy to bet. all you do is send btc to an address. the website is just for looks and stats.
This point is key. Ironically for the US the only thing that will be blocked is the marketing arm of the business and operations will continue with the actual gambling aspect regardless.
Plus, someone "unaffiliated" to Satoshidice could easily post a HOWTO on various forums. It'd be "out of their control" to censor the address information. It's already available through blockchain.info and other places.
Guess I'll see in the morning or tomorrow when the change will happen if I bet on it right or just got the new market price Smiley Might just be a bit too much hype and panic this time the fundamental hasn't changed the business is still running day to day operations and renewed its web address already lol... Cheesy

Two things for noting

The announcement was made when evoorhees went off sent him a mail to confirm this statement as well
When he gets on we can confirm if this is true till then we wait and assume it is Smiley
Asked him to post in the thread since it is true that S_Dice is official doesn't hurt to get a second confirmation
Ah fortress pointed it out double confirm from S_Dice reddit same pass bet lols

Understand that Satoshidice is not going this for any other reason than to have a legal standing if/when US authorities come to them and say 'you can't have a gambling website for US customers'.  The actual technicalities of bypassing this, or the fact that you can gamble over the P2P network, or use a VPN don't matter, it's about Satoshidice making a 'best endeavour' to block US players from gambling to cover their backs.

Does it really change anything though? Can't a person still send a bitcoin to their addresses to play? One needs only a list of their addresses to keep gambling to ones heart's content.

For current bettors.. Nah.

But I doubt any new bettors from the US will be betting (Well not as many at least).

That's gonna reduce their business a LOT I'd say... I have a feeling it won't be hard for them to get around this though with other websites 'not under their name' displaying all the relevant information (Bet addresses, recent bets etc.) to potential new customers.

Either way, it'll still be a blow. Awaiting Erik's confirmation though.

The issue, as I see it, is that SDICE has been a dead-in-the-water asset for a few months now. The last thing they need is bad news.

In the past, I tried to be nice about my criticisms of SDICE's failure to grow as a business and capitalize on its leading position. However at this point, it's foolish to be optimistic or understanding.

I believe the management has been grossly negligent at the expense of its shareholders.

Maybe shareholders will get lucky and some casino will buy out satoshidice.com for one last payout, but I'm not holding my breath. I completely exited my position over the past couple weeks, and I feel relieved.

To re-confirm, SatoshiDICE_PR is a legitimate account and the representative of SD. The announcement is legitimate.

Do not blame you but when havelock goes down to 0.12 I couldn't resist haha even looks somewhat appetizing at 0.20 lol if I had gox and 50 bit might nom at 0.16
Also thanks evoorhees for the confirmation post Smiley
