Affiliate marketers already reeling from the Casino Coins departure from the market received more bad news Tuesday when the Best Casino Partners program advised that it was closing four internet casino brands: Online Vegas, Go Casino, Crazy Slots, and Grand Vegas. Speculation inevitably centred on recent US enforcement actions as the cause of the closures, but the shutdowns are international, and not confined only to the United States.
The email received by numerous affiliates read:
"In light of recent events we regret to inform you that effective Friday May 27th, 2011 all tracking links for BestCasinoPartner.com partner casinos will become inactive and you will no longer be able to promote these brands.
"Further to this our partner casinos will be working with their software provider, Vegas Technology, to disable player registrations.
"We strongly encourage you to remove your affiliate links immediately. This policy will be implemented for all of the BestCasinoPartner partner sites: Online Vegas, Go Casino, Crazy Slots, and Grand Vegas.
"We apologize for the short notice and we sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
"Please login to BestCasinoPartner in the coming days for further updates."
Several affiliates subsequently reported contacting Best Casino Partners affiliate managers, who confirmed that the casinos were closing, and that the communication applied to all affiliates, and not just those in the Unites States.
