    I've been reading alot of stuff online about them and it looks like their going to close operations entirely (not just U.S.). I wonder if they'll pay all the HUGE winners they advertise across their websites. It's interesting that RTG can still operate and everyone else is leaving.

    Either they have better processors or just don't care about U.S. law.

    First I've heard of this - can you provide sources for your assertion please?

    This is a group that has been around since the earliest days of the industry. Unless a major decision to quit the industry has been made recently I just don't see this - they have customers all over the world.

    When a group like this bails out, it should spell a "writing on the wall" moment. Most people in the USA would be well advised to cash out and uninstall. This is one situation that is going to get far worse before it get's better. I have one casino left on my computer, which never gives any bonuses over 50%, ever. I now have a 100% bonus sent to me by email. I'm not taking this action this time. Something doesn't feel right about it. I'm gonna pass.

    Never mind - did my own research and it appears this is correct and dates from May 16th this year.

    That one passed me by :oops:

    I'm truly surprised.

    Must have not been effective for all at same time........

    Some posts state accounts were closed in May and they were told due to their region not being supported.

    Yesterday 7/1 was the first time I was not able to deposit and message in cashier said no deposit methods available. So possibly it took effect gradually?

    Anyway, CS didn't advise me they were closing, they said deposit options unavailable for indefinate period. So wish they would clarify this for others. I have already deleted all of their casinos.

    Cant say im so surpised to see this, the management behind this group of casinos has been a few marbles short of a bag full for ages. Who in their right mind prohibits UK customers from signing up? Ill tell you who, THIS group of casinos. I know this may tred on a few peoples toes here but all i can say is poetic justice and the phrase `serves them right` springs to mind :D bad management = bad business decisions. Case solved.

    They thought they had the US market, so neglected to expand into one of the biggest non-US European markets, the UK. The sudden collapse of the major processing options has made it very hard for US players to carry on, but with NO players from the UK, they have no alternative revenue stream. It is too late for them to switch attention to the UK, and build up a player base that will make up for the reduction in their core US market, so they have been forced to give up and close.

    They are one of a number of casino groups that have closed (or been sold to Casino Rewards:) ) since late Spring.

    The question now is "who is next?".

    At least they are giving notice, but they should also have emailed their players directly, since it seems a few have no idea what is going to happen to their existing accounts in a matter of weeks.

    Check from English Harbor Group Bounced

    Received check from EH group and it was returned NSF on 7/6.

    Customer support advised they had problems with bank of 6/28 and to redeposit check as funds now in account. Said they would pay me the 12.00 RTF but not sure how they plan to do that. Send me a check? Doubt that.

    What a mess.

    How?

    Did you have a balance left in your account? Check the cashier page and see if you can still deposit.

    Please post answer here. Thanks

    I've shot an email off to the operators to see what's up. I know they had closed the door to new accounts, but I was under the impression that they were still in business with the current players.

    I'm signing off for the day, but if and when I get a response I'll post it.

    Hello,

    We just wanted to clear the air that EHCasino's is still operating for its customers. Yes some changes has happened over the past couple months with no longer accepting registrations. We are also faced with the same challenges every operator is faced with and that is reliable deposit options for our players. We are continuing to work through this period with hopes of getting some alternatives soon. Until then customers are able to continuing playing with their balances or request cashouts if they choose. We are not blocking our customers from their funds.

    If you should have any further questions you can also contact support for further clarification.

    Thank you for you understanding

    EHCasino Team

    Any new options are likely to face the same problems, and this will make the US market unprofitable. With no new players being accepted, and more existing ones giving up on the struggle every time they find they can't reliably get paid, the group WILL close, it is just a matter of when.

    The processing problems for the US are not there for much of the rest of the world, so ignoring this market altogether was a bad move. Many other operators "saw it coming" a couple of years ago, and made the effort to build a non-US player base that would replace the shrinking US player base. Many relocated to a UK whitelisted jurisdiction to make expansion into the EU much easier.

    EH has missed the boat, and even with a change of focus now, they would have to catch up with the rest.

    Not every operator that shifted focus away from the US made it through either, this year has seen a wave of operations going out of business, despite them having expanded into the non-US markets.
