    Unhappy

    Bad news!! They say you can withdraw your money before October 24th. I hope it's true.

    Does anybody know if there is another brand from Income Access involved? What about Lasseters Sportsbook, did they also closed?

    Default Lasseters Casino ceases operation

    Just as many business sectors get shaken up, be it aviation, financial services or petroleum and mining operations, so does the gaming and casino sector, be it online or bricks and mortar. Lasseters was a long time coming. The TAB, Gold Coast Titans, Crown and and Casinos Austria International are just a few watching this space closely I understand, and if there weren't before, rest assured they are paying more attention now. Most of these companies have folks who monitor search engine results, online forum discussions and more. GPWA and CAP is helping give the PR's at the hotels, casinos and sports betting firms something to keep any eye on. And, some of this sort of info does make it to print. I even fed an Aussie sports betting NRL style story to the US a few weeks ago. Things are just heating up as the casino and online casino business continues its shake up. Just look at James Packer, Steve Wynn and Stanley Ho and their operations if you need more convincing.

    Default Lasseters Casino ceases operation

    We updated our online profile on Lasseters to reflect the news. It will be interesting to see what other shake ups occur in Australia. I think the NRL (National Rugby League) and specifically the Gold Gold Titan's knew it was time to really become part of the Australian sports betting action. I think Crown has yet to make a solid impact in the online casino space. Sporting Bet is playing catch up trying to fill some holes and make affiliates happy. Customer service, results and making affiliates happy is something that I know first hand that Virgin Games - Virgin Casino and PKR do well. The world and the online casino sector is a very small place these days where everyone is connected via the 6 degrees rule. Word is the real news VS spin is also going to get to the news media, including mainstream media, soon enough. Watch this space.
