Doing some digging to find out who the people are behind this group.

I received an email offering me free spins about 16 hours ago! Seriously disturbing.

On the Malta registry of companies (Link Removed ( Old/Invalid) ), the company registration is C 40689 Eurolinx limited.

The names Linx Media Group, BetOnBet and Linx Casino are not registered as such in this registry.

Moreover, on 18/08/2009 Eurolinx made alterations to its Memorandum of Articles as well as updated its Memorandum & Articles of Association.

On this site, I failed to find the names of the natural persons involved and couldn't access the changed or original articles and memoranda.

My best guess: Account holders won't see much money back from non-existent entities and somehow the shareholders/managers changed the company structure as such that they feel confident to start frauding a little last bit of deposits out of people.

Now let's make it straight... I am owed more than 1000 euro by Linx casino. I played there only 2 weeks ago. And I am 99% sure that they will never pay me this money!
Now let's ask one more time- who should we blame??? Linx casino??? A bunch of losers and liars! Who else? Microgaming??? I think so! But Microgaming seems not to care!
Please ,explain me why Microgaming and Playtech are still considered to be respectful entities at this website! Player's advocate website? Both of these biggest companies has proved many times over these years that they are ready to let to their licensees to steal from it's players!
Now I am robbed!
Thank you Casinomeister! That was an accredited robbery!

One of\if not the main guy, is called "Jo Arild Remme", and I just found out that he is from the same district as me here in Norway. (I am in no way linked to this guy)

He has been in "trouble" before, with pyramide schemes and other projects going bust.

(Im not out to stain the guy, you asked, I knew the answer, so I answered.)

(All the information are in Norwegian)


Sorry for those of you who lost money in this. How a company that seemingly has a large player base and rakes in guranteed profits in poker-rake and have the house edge on their side in the casinogames can go bust like this is beyond me...

I did not lose any money in this, luckily my state was banned from Microgaming years ago, but I know a lot of people who did lose money. It is time to really press Microgaming and for people in the indistry to realize they are a sham. Years ago Microgaming was a name you could trust but first Tusk and now this. It shows Microgaming has no concern for what their licensed skins do and no concern for player funds being help separate or safely. If they turn their heads again on this they need to be marked as a rogue software provider as it seems they clearly don't care about players or legit licensees concerns. I can't think of more than a handful of Microgaming skins I would want even owing me $100 right now.

If I were a skin owner I would be furious, this just devalued your property no matter how strong your brand is. Players everywhere are left to wonder if they can trust any MG site. I hope the skins push MG to make this and Tusk right or risk losing the entire business in the long run.

Are we really to a point where we can say Microgaming is one of the shadier companies in this industry? Who ever thought this day would come?


Yes, they only cared how much rake they could take before Eurolinx went bust. They knew of the Eurolinx problems. Personally I now have one MG account open and have seized my play on it pending my resolution. Even if its a casino account, its the same MG scumbags that provide the software.

And about the company and the licenses:
"Eurolinx" is a company owned by Eurolinx International NV, whose offices are held at PO Box 6052, Curacao, Netherlands Antilles. It is marketed by same through an exclusive agreement with Eurolinx Ltd, whose offices are held at Vincenti Buildings, Suite 409, 14/19 Strait Street, Valletta Malta. Eurolinx shall heretoafter be referred to as the "Company."

Eurolinx is licensed in Curacao under the master license #5536/JAZ.


So no Malta license here.

The players at Eurolinx and BetOnBet are in a much better position than those at TUSK IMO. There are "bigger" names and they are much more likely to be taken over by another poker room. Cake perhaps? They already had some negotiations with Battlefield and RedNines during the beginning of the TUSK fiasco.

The casino players are in a worse position and in the mercy of the liquidators. The customer base is probably worth zilch. Worth to remember is that the casinos in TUSK group had known brands and a large player database and was taken over by Casino Rewards with costs under one million AUD. A good deal IMO.
I cant see how any operator would like to take over the Linx casino with its liabilities, because as I said earlier the player database isnt probably worth much.
So their only hope IMO lies in that Eurolinx and BetOnBet and their liabilities are taken over by another room.

And I think this was the final blow to the already tarnished reputation of Microgaming Poker Network. Some bigger affiliates have already stopped promoting all MG poker rooms. So there will basically be Ladbrokes/Unibet left.

Yeah - if it's Curacao that's a bummer - that jurisdiction seems to have little interest in player problems.

...Thank you Casinomeister! That was an accredited robbery!
Eh? Excuse me? These guys lost their "Accreditation" over a year ago. The operator lied to my face when it came to a major player issue - this was broadcast all over the internet to include 2+2. Where were you?? :what:

When I yanked them off of the site, you should have stopped playing there.

They have also been on our PAB no-can-do list
https://www.casinomeister.com/casino-complaints/no-can-do-list/

So if you fail to read the writing on the wall (or on this site), you have yourself to blame for this, not me.

So please keep your troll-like comments to yourself - thanks :thumbsup:

Casinomeister doesnt miss much at all I can tell you, and he still finds time to get into the garden to do weeding.

"Please note: We do not license www.eurolinx.com or www.betonbet.com"

I also scoured the LGA and was unable to find Betonbet's or Eurolinx cancelled or suspended license. They do not appear to be currently licensed. I know when all of the mess that got Eurolinx decertified here Jo Remme offered for any mod at 2+2 to visit Malta to tour the facilities on them. It would seem impossible that they would openly operate in Malta without a license wouldn't it? Maybe I just can't find it.

Whoa! More shocking revelations regarding the operations of this outfit and its management.

If it is true that Jo Remme and his colleagues were operating without a licence whilst telling players that they were licensed, it would probably amount to criminal fraud and be actionable against the individuals concerned.

@hakapuku - may I suggest iGoggles :p (see current Casinomeister News)

I'm told that Remme has claimed his licensing is (was) as follows:

Eurolinx poker licensed in Curacao

Betonbet licensed in Malta

Linx Casino licensed in KGC.

If this is true, the only charitable explanation for the lack of information reported by PA and Wang I can think of is that the registrations may have been done under the name of another group company.

It has to be either that, or blatant and fraudulent falsehoods?

Good sleuthing, guys!

I'm getting conflicting signals here from Norway - one of our contacts says about the Norwegian articles linked by Pulver:

"It would appear to refer to Jo Renne being a victim of a pyramid scheme and playing a role in uncovering it, not the perpetrator."

That shouldn't distract us from the circumstances in the Linx Media failure as far as I am concerned - or from Remme behaviour in his dealings with the Casinomeister, which were questionable imo.

Jetset: Did you have the article translated by a norwegian?

N har litt over hundre medlemmer, med trioen Alf Lyster, Sverre Magnar Gallefoss og Kjetil Rasmussen i spissen, engasjert advokat og forbederes sksml og og politanmeldelse av kristiansunderne Kristian Fredriksen, Per Inge Maridal og sunnmringen Jo Arild Remme, skriver bladet.

I am quoting the last paragraph of the article.

In short words it says: A little over a hundred members, with the trio Alf Lyster, Sverre Magnar Gallefoss and Kjetil Rasmussen have hired a lawyer and are preparing lawsuits against Kristian Fredriksen, Per Inge Maridal and Jo Arild Remme

Well, it is possible that the reporter who wrote that article made a mistake. It wouldn't be the first time :rolleyes:
