Monday July 18, 2011 : Seven online casinos to close August 1st
The fate of the Vegas Technology-powered pioneering online gambling group EH Ventures is currently the subject of speculation across internet message boards after its .com online casino sites started displaying closure notices this week, advising visitors that the virtual doors would be closed on August 1st.
The closures follow reports that associated sportsbook-casino sites VIP.com, BetGameDay.com and Nine.com were displaying the identical closure notice.
The brands affected appear to be the Antigua-licensed Millionaire Casino, VIP Slots, Slots Galore, Silver Dollar Casino, Super Slots and Caribbean Gold Casinos, although the flagship English Harbour casino is apparently still operating on a .co.uk domain.
In the absence of any official public statement from EH Ventures, the speculation is that the closures are the result of a decision by the group to distance itself from the legally troublesome US market, and has consequently trimmed its operations down to the UK-domained English Harbour casino.
