Will new US legislation for online gambling change the text link markletplace?

Casino sites are famous for buying links, but the ones targeting US customers may ahve a lot less interest in advertising soon thanks to new US legislation:

"The precise effect of the legislation is unclear," 888 Holdings said in a statement. "However, this legislation indicates Congressional intent to treat Internet gaming, whether sports-related or not, as illegal."

The legislation, if enacted, "will make it practically impossible to provide U.S. residents with access to its real money poker and other real money gaming sites," PartyGaming said. "If the president signs the act into law, the company will suspend all real money gaming business with U.S. residents."

Obviously webmasters who make money through affiliate programs will also be hit hard if this legislation mostly ends online gambling in the US. European companies who do business in Euros should not be affected much.
