Shady online betting destination Rome Casino has announced that internet betting software developer Top Game has shut the casino down, claiming that Top Game demanded $2.85 million in order to keep the casino running.
The announcement came through an email from Rome Partners to its affiliates that read: "We regret to announce that Rome Partners and Topaze Affiliation have been shut down by the direction of Top Game, they have blocked all access. We no longer have any way of verifying the statistics and accounts, nor any of the account information of your affiliate accounts. This newsletter is sent with a delay because we were trying to find a solution."
"Our brands have been stolen and cloned and today all (of our) Top Game (powered) casinos redirect nowhere."
Rome is now sending its players to Rival-powered brands. "Concerning the payment of affiliate commissions of November , we will pay affiliates who had reached the sum of $500. Our affiliate manager has made an array of commissions on December 1st, so we are able to identify the members who were to receive commissions," the email read.
"Today, we focus on our Rival casinos on the Affcoins affiliation platform. We would like to take up a challenge after this story that dirtied the image of online gaming."
According to the email, Top Game claims that Rome Casino owes the provider $2.85 million. The software developer apparently thought there was no chance of recouping the money and cut off access.
Online gamblers have been well advised to avoid playing at Rome Casino, with the site blacklisted by Casino Listings due to a saga involving a missing jackpot symbol on one of its slot machines, many reports of slow payments and even non-payment of winnings, as well as several clauses that actively prevent players from withdrawing their winnings.
