Has Entrobet Done A Runner?

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Dec 8, 2017

After just nine months, Morten Viken’s latest enterprise disappears

Players are currently expressing concern that Morten Viken’s latest Scandinavian-facing enterprise, the Curacao-licensed online casino and sportsbook Entrobet.com, has gone dark with no communication regarding their account balances, the reason for its shutdown or its future.

Certainly the website is down, and the Twitter feed for the business was last updated in August…all just nine months after Viken launched the site, his second online gambling business, in March this year.

His first – an online sportsbook branded 70bet – shut down in similar circumstances in 2015, taking with it mainly Norwegian player funds. On that occasion Viken claimed to be manager rather than owner of the business, an assertion that was strongly refuted.

Entrobet players were offered deposit bonuses significantly larger than the norm, a potential red flag for experienced online punters burned in encounters with ‘hit and run’ operators.

EntroBet is registered as part of the S.M.N Group N.V in Curacao, and was founded in 2016. In June this year EntroBet m.d. Christer Frestad announced that it had joined the NetRefer affiliate management program.

Requests for comment on the apparent EntroBet shuttering have thus far gone unanswered.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
