    I just got an email from DrHo888.com saying that they are closing down already.

    The email goes something like ...

    ==========================================

    Dear player,



    First of all, we would like to thank you for playing at DrHo888 casino.



    Unfortunately, we regret to inform you that DrHo888.com will be shut down within the next 24 hours. However, this shut down has no effect on your account information and balance. You can still come and play with our beautiful dealers at ho368.com.

    They are Boss created (Live Casino) then they took up PlayTech. Now, they are closing? Very interesting... does anyone gamble there? Any feedback?

    This is pretty strange.

    You must register/login in order to see the link. is a parked domain, and on the main DrHo site there is this notice but not much detail:

    In light of the new U.S. legislation regarding Internet gaming, no U.S. players will be permitted to play.

    Are you a US player perhaps?

    24 hours notice is really not acceptable, especially when unaccompanied by guidance on clearing accounts, reasons for closure etc.

    We've asked them for more information on this.

    Are you sure the headers matched up for the email you recieved? It almost sounds like a phishing scam...

    Are you sure the headers matched up for the email you recieved? It almost sounds like a phishing scam, which is further reinforced by the domain being registered at godaddy.

    Firefox can't find the server at You must register/login in order to see the link..

    Besides it's unlikely Dr.Ho would change the famous lucky 8's

    Works for me...

    Weird email. You would figure if it was a phishing scam, they'd have something in place; unless of course godaddy already shut it down.

    Works fine for me. My instinct says that this is a software change, I do not recognize the "computer" game on the left side of the screen. Furthermore, the previews only show the live games.

    Judging by the photos of the dealers, plus a traceroute, they have moved to Costa Rica.

    BTW, aodat2 is in Asia, not the US :)

    DrHo888 and ho368 look the same and have the same IP address.

    Could be redirected by now - but that does not look like a PT casino. Furthermore, PT's live games are not served from Costa Rica.

    The You must register/login in order to see the link. link definitely led to a parking spot when we checked yesterday, but is now up and pretty close replica to the Ho888 site. We've fired off a new enquiry in the hope that these guys will wake up and tell the players what is going on here.

    Believe it or not, I actually got this email on all 4 addresses that I registered with them. I don't know if this is something crazy or something wrong sent out by their people. But if you say that they are not closing anytime soon, then why in the world are they actually sending that email out?

    Doesn't that email specifically say that they are closing down?

    Very strange....I wonder what the significance of 368 is. I would figure they'd use 365 or something that was mare "catchy".

    6 and 8 are lucky numbers for chinese
    so 666 888 168 268 368 .... are very popular.

    china ISPs filtered Ladbrokes.com, so lad set up lad168.com and lad268.com for chinese players.

    easy to remember, nothing special, just like super 7 in western countries.

    3 - live, or long life
    6 - smooth or easy
    8 - prosperity

    Thus, 368 means "long life and easy prosperity"

    DrHo888 as far as I know has never used Playtech software.

    Their home office with dealers are located in Costa Rica about 10 blocks from my house :oops:

    I received the email as well, who knows if they got heat from the US..
