    As the title says , both Celtic and Fairway Casinos have gone out of business.

    That's as much information I have at the moment, as soon as I hear more I'll post an update.

    Yep, they've gone offline. That's a shame. At one point, they were among my best earners with links all over my network.

    What’s going on with all of these casinos shutting down operations?


    Here’s a similar story about PokerStars that was in the news only last month: https://pokerindustrypro.com/news/article/210351-partypoker-exits-switzerland-pokerstars-closes-casino-new

    These two things are totally unrelated - that link is about regulatory changes in Switzerland. The OP is talking about two casinos going bust generally.

    Neil - do you have any confirmation on this, doesn't seem to be a lot on the web about it?

    All I know is that the company running those two casinos has gone bust. The Affiliate program BOGAP has redirected traffic to their other property, BetBit Casino. I can't get the games to load there. Celtic & Fairway has been removed from the Affiliate portal, so I guess all monies owed are also gone.

    I'm waiting to find out more.

    Visionary iGaming who provided the Live Casino games for all of them is still there and other casinos are streaming their games, so there is no issue with the backend.

    I noticed both casinos were down on Friday. I thought it was a glitch and when they didn't come back over the weekend I emailed BoGAP and was told about the closure.

    That's all I know.

    BetBit is another scam from BOGAP

    Big scam indeed !

    It looks like they decided to get rid of the regular brands stealing all affiliates money without saying anything
    And decided to move to crypto brands and this is why Betbit is there... most probably all your players from Celtic & Fairway got their emails to join Betbit
    I also see how all old tracking redirect to Betbit... it's a shame.. a bunch of thieves

    Just received today:

    Hello,As an affiliate in our network, I wanted to reach out to you and tell you about our new pilot program. Have you thought about running your own casino and sportsbook on your domain? We have decided to open up our own proprietary gaming software to our affiliates. Our platform has served our flagship site, betbit.com extremely well. So well, that we thought we would do better for ourselves by offering this to you. We only plan to start with 5 new brands. This offer is not open to anyone else at the moment. We wanted to give our affiliates first dibs.

    Cost? It would cost very little. If you have a good solid history of making affiliate revenue this will most extremely little. We would ask a small and reasonable commission on the revenue generated.

    We can add multiple software providers and sportsbook services. We are confident we can give you the tools for success. Currently, we have integrated with 10 different software providers.

    Summary of why you should do it.

    (1) More income on the same affiliate traffic.
    (2) Diversify your income.
    (3) Leverage your existing traffic for more revenue share.
    (4) Work directly with your players for higher retention.
    (5) Better engagement for superior SEO google results.
    (6) Affiliate tracking software is also available.

    Again, there are limited spaces in our pilot program. Contact me so we can discuss it.


    Regards,
    Gerard,

    I got the same email, so if this part isn't true, I am really heart broken:
    This offer is not open to anyone else at the moment.
