TopGame will be replacing the AffiliateWIDE network which includes several leading online casinos. The news out of the Rival Software network is that other Rival networks are likely to switch too. Owing to the decision to disallow new US players from registering the strength of the Rival Software network will likely continue to weaken.Diminishing Player Interest
It has been noted that several of Rival's associated sites have been experiencing diminishing player interest in recent times. This news comes on the back of the infamous Black Friday sting against US Poker and online gambling sites. Of course this information is hardly newsworthy, given that Rival-powered casinos were blocking US players as of June this year.
Rival Gaming has licensed over 20 online casinos. These online gaming sites provide players with superior audio-visuals, animation and gaming quality. Gaming markets are reacting to the news with a combination of surprise and fulfilled expectation. Black Friday was the catalyst sparking the withdrawal from the US market. On the positive side, there are multiple online casinos able to pick up the slack as the gaming world re-arranges itself accordingly.
