This is the remaining Bear Group casino (I believe Slingo, BGT Games, XFactor Games and Spin Genie are moved to another owner?) are closing with immediate effect. Only affects the UK as they were IIRC a UK-facing site.

Failed to be able to contact Bgt games or bear group just automated replies from emails and telephone.

Yes - it will be paid as their player funds are separate under UKGC rules although that's not an absolute guarantee in itself. It may just mean a longer wait as they collect up the withdrawals and settle them in one go.

Thanks for the reply , good to know I was thinking it may all be a little slower with the Christmas and new year period. It’s for £1000 so I’m hoping it lands in my bank account soon.
Thanks once again

Yep, I assume that's River Affiliates who deal with Vegas Casino only?

So don't tell me, neither they nor Quickthink Affs. will be paying us our account balances then?

Wouldn't surprise me after AceWorld stitched me up by summarily closing their aff. programme without any indication they would pay outstanding balances for Fun88 etc.

That's after Cosmos did the same with Caribic and Casino Commission with the brands they got from White Hat, 666 something-or-other and something-Jackpots.

Yeah, I was pleased to get those emails too. They was all pretty rogue anyway and at least now it stops the spam from them all. So at least that is a positive..........

Not surprised they've gone under (if that is indeed what has happened). Terribly tacky looking and glitchy sites with mostly slow cash out times.

The word clipjoint definitely came to mind with this lot.
