US Department of Justice closes Online Gaming Rooms

It was about 4 months ago, when the US Department of Justice made some major American online poker rooms close down.  This was done as some illegal payment procedures were followed by these sites. After this, there have been repeated closures of a few casino groups and software providers of the country. Recently the software provider, Rival Gaming announced that casinos licensed under it will not be able to accept new American players. The Affiliate program called AffiliateWide confirmed the news. It said that Rival gaming has sent a notification stating that from August 7, registration of new players will not be allowed.  AffiliateWide also said that the existing players can no longer make deposits. They can continue earning commissions through player generated revenues. Having a large client base in the US, AffiliateWide aims at developing it further. For this reason it is thinking of switching to a different software provider called Top Game. Top Game operates in the online gambling market of America with casinos like Spartan Slots, Black Diamond and Box24 Casino under it. AffiliateWide says that it will shift to Top Game by the 15th of this month. Rival games will run in the online casinos till the switchover takes place. Affiliates can access Rival stats on the website of AffiliateWeb. After switching over to Top Game, players can wager on its games. They can log on to the Top Game affiliate system or download tracking codes and new marketing material.  In case players on AffiliateWide wish to wager games of Rival gaming, they have to close their AffiliateWide account and look for another online casino run by Rival Gaming. Another announcement was made by the Realtime online casino, Intertops.  The internet casino has decided on changing its domain suffix. It will shift to .eu from .com.  This will enhance the service level, reliability and accessibility of the site according to Intertops.
