Swedish online betting software developer Net Ent has reportedly pulled out of the Canadian gaming market, as prominent online casino Guts sent out an advisory noting that the games will no longer be available to customers in the region.
In an email to affiliates this week Guts wrote: "Yesterday we had to block NetEnt games from Canadian customers as they are no longer allowed to play them. It was a decision made by the game provider and out of our control. This will not adversely affect our Canadian customers as we will continue to offer them a great selection of games from other top-notch providers, promotions and rewards."
No reason for the pullout was given, but Net Ent has made recent strides in the North American iGaming market to cater to licensed and regulated territories. Recently the company began offering its games in the state of New Jersey, and it is possible that the company is trying to avoid any gray market situations.

NetEnt leave Canadian market but has conquered that in New Jersey so not exactly a backtrack for them especially when we know how good they're doing in the rest of the world too.
I've heard about this a few times now. I do feel bad for Canadians as Netent is my favorite game provider and i would be really sad if they were taken away from me. I would like to know the reason for this pull out.
