    In light of the current confusion and inconsistency in online gaming legislation worldwide, the owners of The Ritz Club London Online have, regretfully, decided to close the site to new customers with immediate effect.

    Weird.

    Wasn't there a thread elsewhere that indicated that Ritz Club was changing software providers? Perhaps this is just a coincidence?

    Their press team is pretty slow - we've now been waiting 36 hours for a comment on this decision.

    I agree it is sad to say goodbye to one of the few Crypto casino. For the diversty and competition between the software providers it is a also a sad loss for the players indirectly. Unfortunately I was never able to play there since they did not accept danish players and I could not convince them otherwise.

    INetBet also does not accept danish players but here I was able to charm my way into making the CS create an account for me.

    That's what their web-page says.
    But that's ALL it says - there is no information for existing customers! :eek:

    They are reportedly switching to Playtech soon anyway :axeman: so we ARE still going to lose a great Crypto. :mad:
