    I opened an account last summer to Vegascasino.com and received email to my player account email (spam folder) an hour ago.

    "Hi,

    The team at Vegas Casino would like to update you on an important notice.
    River Game Operations Limited (licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority) is suspending its gaming operations with effect as of 23 December 2019.

    This will not affect any balances that you may have in your player account. To withdraw any remaining balance, or if you have any questions, our Customer Support Team is ready to assist you via email on support@vegascasino.com . We would also like to re-assure you that your data will be safely stored in line with our Privacy Policy.

    Everyone at Vegas Casino would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of our journey.

    I have it listed on my site, but there hasn't been any communication from the affiliate managers. Site looks like it is still working, anyone heard anything from them?

    I know one of the main aff managers left a while ago so would not be surprised if this is true.

    Just tried, none of their sites work:

    Bear Group Limited is suspending its gambling operations as from today.
    Contact Customer Support on kundservice@casonic.com for questions and balance withdrawal

    Bit weird that the email they send was dated on 23rd of December, but it was sent on 24th. Maybe they ran out of money.

    Didnt they just recently open for the UK market? We all know how shitty the UK market is nowadays and how expensive it is for operators (taxes/licensenings/added extra costs to keep up with their new laws/fines). Maybe that is what caused their ultimate demise?

    Wouldn't be surprised. When they launched, they were handing out wager-free 200% bonuses + hybrid deals. They probably ran out of money.

    Thanks for posting about this. seems to be true, they have shut the casino. Other websites (casonic, bgtgames) seems to work okay. not sure why they havent emailed their affiliates about this?!

    Casonic and bgtgames also have the suspend notification on the homepage. It is in the slider, but it is the second slide.
