What's Up At Club Gold Online Casino?

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Aug 29, 2014

Software and staff changes without warning

Speculation is currently rife on several player forums regarding unheralded changes at the Club Gold online casino, which has reportedly dumped a mixed platform of NetEnt, Microgaming and BetSoft games for the largely unknown Hawk Gaming (Hawk.gs) product.
Further intriguing players are allegations from former staff members that they were dismissed with little notice or warning.
The company has thus far apparently not deemed it necessary to keep players and affiliates in the loop regarding its radical switches.
Hawk appears to be associated with Habanero Systems BV and offers online casino, sportsbetting and poker software portfolios that include 50 slots, 6 table games and 10 video pokers. The company has developed Flash (no download) games, which are available in six mainly Asian languages.
Club Gold switched to the previous mixed platform from Playtech in April this year, further deepening the mystery.

Brian Cullingworth

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.
