Class 1 Casino Shuts DownPublished October 26, 2011 by OCR Editor
Blames Playtech for breach of contract.
Class 1 Casino has sent out an email announcement to all its affiliates earlier today saying it has shut down its doors to all new and returning players.
"We regret to inform you that Class 1 Casino has temporarily stopped accepting deposits and bets from all players," the email read.
Class 1 Casino's announcement blames Playtech, their software provider, for the unfortunate shut-down, which has come into action on October 11th, 2011. Playtech has shut down the casino's gaming servers unilaterally, without any prior notice.
If this is indeed the case, it would seem to be a breach of contract on behalf of Playtech.
The announcement comes only now - two weeks after Playtech had shut down its gaming services - as the casino management tried resolving the matter in negotiations.
Naturally, players and affiliates are in the dark. Affiliates have been paid their balances the previous month, and no outstanding debt is known to us at this point. Players with positive balances, however, are being contacted and we hope all debts will be handled in a timely manner by the casino.
Class 1 Casino promises to take legal actions in order to restore the gaming activities back to normal. They added an apology to all customers.
