|Numerous online gambling information portals are reporting problems with turnkey provider FutureBet Gaming Systems, leading several observers to believe that the company is in serious trouble.|
Established in 1998, the St Kitts And Nevis-based software provider has long been the subject of player complaints with respected sports betting portal SportsBookReview.com reporting that significant numbers of FutureBet sites have gone offline. These include BetandWinNet, FunPlexCasino and Bignutzz with industry analysts predicting that other FutureBet brand owners will take their websites off-line this week.
The FutureBet site Linesmaker.co.uk closed five days ago with the site reporting that the action was taken because ‘the gaming platform provider for this website is claiming insolvency and is no longer able to provide services’. The website assured players that balances would be honoured and that users should contact an e-mail address specially set up to deal with the crisis at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
Attempts to contact the top management at FutureBet via e-mail requesting comment on the company’s situation have gone unanswered so far.
