Recap from Week 32
The past week witnessed major developments in the online casino world here in the UK. The worst news to come out of the industry is the shutting down of 1xBet casino’s UK.
Sunday Times investigation into the casino revealed an ongoing regulatory probe into the casino’s marketing and operational activities. The casino has been found to have broken a series of gambling laws in the UK, which has promptly made it a target of local investigation. 1xBet originally started as a Russian gambling website and has evolved into an international online casino headquartered in Cyprus. Even before shutting shop in the UK, 1xBet was blacklisted in Russia.
The players need not worry about their money on the casino, as the casino has not left the UK for good. It is likely a temporary hiatus until they fix the problems that attracted the ire of the UK gambling officials.
More Bad News: Casinos to Avoid, For Now
Reports from players across the industry have been pouring in that several casinos have been experiencing payments-related issues on their platforms. These casinos include:
- Untold Casino
- Mr.Win Casino
We’ll update this list with more casino names as we receive more verifiable information from across the industry. Once these casinos fix their problems, we’ll update that as well for you. It should be noted that just because these casinos are on our temporary “avoid” list, it does not mean that the casinos are following any predatory practices. It hopefully just means that they are currently facing some technical problem, and once they are sorted, these casinos are as great a destination as any for your gaming pleasure.
New Casino Launch: Club Lounge Casino
Club Lounge Casino is the latest online casino to join the ranks of the UK casinos in 2019. It has operated by the renowned casino operator Alpha Interactive Limited and features a full breadth of online casino games for its players.
The casino made its debut in the UK with a welcome bonus of £1500 and 150 free spins. It has a VIP club for loyal players, an excellent customer support team, and a brilliant bonus scheme. It’s going to be a sure hit in the country’s online gaming scene.
Feature in Focus: Multi-screen Gaming
Multi-screen gaming, as the name indicates, allows players to play multiple slot games simultaneously. This way, the players can place their bets on up to 4 games at once. It offers them an excellent opportunity to spread their risk across the games and maximise their winning potential.
However, it had its glitches, and the casinos were trying to figure out the best way to present this feature to the audiences. It appears that they have made their decision and the players love it.
West Casino just lauched this cool new feature! Be sure to try it out!
So, that’s it for this past week. We’ll be back with more updates on the developments in the online casino world by next week.
