Players looking to gamble on casino games on Microgaming powered Canbet are going to have to go elsewhere as of today. Players visiting the Canbet Casino web page today were directed that as of June 30th, 2011 the casino would be closed. The reason for closing the casino was to refocus on the company's base businesses of sports and horse betting.
In a note to marketing affiliates who are with the site were told:
"The decision was made to re-focus on Canbet's core business of horse racing and sports betting, and this means that all available resources will be diverted to these channels," the notification advised.
"We kindly request that all affiliates currently promoting Canbet Casino remove the marketing material from their sites as soon as possible.
"In the meantime, traffic from affiliates will be diverted to Canbet's Sports betting site, where you will still be credited with any revenue generated from registrations and play. Casino creative hosted by CommissionKing will also be replaced with sports creative, so as not to leave broken images on your website in the event that you are unable to implement the change right away."
Founded in 1995 with locations in the UK and Australia, Canbet is owned by International All Sports Limited. A listing on the Canbet website referred players to other Microgaming based casinos.
