The Playshare-CasinoShare-Grand Mondial online casino group will be switching from Microgaming software to an as yet unidentified platform, according to an email notification received late last week by marketing affiliates.
The reference in the email to the US market may provide a clue for the reasons behind the move. The advisory reads:
As of the 1st of June, 2010, play for US players on Casino Share and Grand Mondial will be moved off the Microgaming platform and we will begin licensing software from a brand new software provider.
"The new software will have a similar look and feel, stability and most of the features you have become accustomed to, but with some notable changes. This change has been made in order to ensure that we are able to continue offering safety, service and exciting gaming to all our customers.
"This new casino, called CasinoShare US, launches on the 17th of May, 2010, and will offer players the same look and feel as the Microgaming software they all know and love, as well as all of the features and most of the games they have come to expect from an online casino.
"All US players at CasinoShare will be migrated to CasinoShare US by the 17th of May, 2010, whilst all US players at Grand Mondial players will be migrated on the 31st of May, 2010.
"From a player perspective, the migration process will be completely seamless and (players) won't be required to download new software or open a new account. They will utilize their existing accounts and their balances will be transferred."
