|Online casino group King Solomon’s has announced that its RTG-powered Geisha Lounge is to be reduced to the status of a skin after many years of operation with players being transferred along with loyalty status and rewards to its database.|
The announcement came from Greg Gomes, the outgoing Manager for Affiliate Accounts at Wager Junction, who stated that the group’s Hamptons, Portofino, Gold Key, Magic Oasis and Grand Aces sites would also remain inoperable.
He also stated that special arrangements have been made to ensure that marketing affiliates are not adversely affected by the changes and that the company’s Playtech-powered Windows Casino and Windows Poker interests have done well following the passage of America’s Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA), especially in Europe and that this component would continue to operate on a different software platform.
'We want to reduce our brands and the workload that having multiple brands brings to our Call Centre team,' said Gomes.
'This will enable us to focus on fewer brands but deliver a better service. As a group we have had to change direction after UIGEA and it makes sense to now promote software that Euro players enjoy and that is what we are going to be focusing on moving forward.”
He stated that the new arrangement would see the central Call Centre of the group now only having to log into one platform instead of one for each of the group's casinos with the Windows operations operating on another platform.
