If you’re wondering why your online casino pay-out in Europe is taking longer to arrive than usual, here’s the reason; Visa Europe has advised merchants that it is experiencing a ‘technical issue” in an advisory sent out this week which explains:

“Due to a technical issue on Visa Europe’s side, settlement of funds for Visa transactions in Europe are delayed. This may lead to a delay in purchases or returns appearing on customer account statements. This issue does not impact Visa’s ability to securely process consumer purchases, nor does is impede merchants ability to accept Visa. Visa expects the issue to be resolved within the next 24 hours.”

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.
