    Revenue Giants is leaving the US market. As of October 1st, they will no longer accept new US players.

    No idea why they are leaving the market, but they did add new software providers that do not accept US players.

    Yes - I learned this a couple of days ago.
    Seems like a totally INSANE move on their part and I can not for one moment understand what they are thinking :eek:

    The ONLY thing they had going for their casinos is that they accepted USA players.
    If they think they are going to make a "killing" by entering the EU or Aus market - they are in for a MASSIVE disappointment!

    The strange thing is - they say EXISTING USA players will be allowed to continue as before.
    But for how long I wonder....?

    Worst of all - another kick in the nuts for me as they were one of my best earners last year... :mad:

    I don't understand why they're pulling out of the US either. It doesn't make sense.

    Perhaps they were facing problems? Another explanation I do not have.

    Maybe they can focus on AU. With all those brands pulling out, they might have a chance there. In any other market, their are completely not competitive and also too dodgy.

    Thanks for the heads up. We have never worked with RG - although I know several affiliate who had done well with them.

    To pull out of the US market but allow existing US players to continue is muddled thinking.

    I suspect that they are trying to dive under the covers and avoid US government scrutiny ...
    But this will not fool any investigation - although I guess it will lower their profile (less US facing ads).

    Clearly the US is their most lucrative market and they can't survive without it.
    But they don't want to attract attention ?

    I agree that they have little chance of entering markets as a licensed operator - and unlicensed groups in EU get little traction.

    Given that - how long before the affiliate program folds?

    The email said they want to focus on the AU market.

    Population of the USA: 324,000,000
    Population of Australia: 24,000,000 = less than California or Texas on their own!

    So what chance in a market 1/14 the size... :eek:

    I hope they reconsider, or at least keep a few sites as US friendly.
    As mentioned, the Australian market is tiny by comparison, and their sites are crappy compared to the competition.

    Same thing I thought when I read it. Was it just my email that said that?

    They are shifting their focus to the Australian market. This is what I've been told.
    Not exactly sure why they need to leave one market to focus on another tho.

    I think it's no voluntary move for them. They might have some troubles to keep on accepting US players. Might have to do with their license holders, game providers, Antigua, etc. Don't know, but it must be something. Perhaps they cvan also improve their product now.

    That will be necessairy anyway, because like this now they are not competitive at all.

    This seems to be due to a software provider that will no longer accepts new US players, and therefore
    the brands are moving entirely out of the US market. Deckmedia has just announced that they
    will no longer be accepting US players at Box 24, Black Diamond or Spartan Slots on October 1st.
    So, obviously this is a deadline to restrict US players from one of their software providers.

    In my opinion, it would be better if they just removed the software provider and replaced
    them with a US-friendly provider, since they've been focused on the US market for so long.

    Seems that Pragmatic Play aka Topgame pushes them out.

    Well for those affiliates wanting a casino that takes both US and Oz then my signature should guide you in the right direction. :)
