BetVictor says 'no more' to online poker2017-06-29 11:11:17
A quick look at the BetVictor website will reveal any number of sports and casino betting options, but poker is nowhere to be found, having undergone a Stalinist purge from the company’s official history.
You’ve Got Mail
BetVictor broke the news to its customers via an email thanking them for their custom over the years. The company followed that up with a frequently asked questions notice. BetVictor’s poker players were told they could either withdraw their account balance by June 7 or transfer their funds to BetVictor’s Sports/Casino wallet.
Non-cashable points are now worthless but unused tickets were redeemed for cash upon closure of the poker site. Rakeback customers were assured they would receive a payment on June 7 for all funds generated over the first week of June. Affiliates were promised that their commissions would be paid as normal following submission of the necessary invoices.
BetVictor was founded by betting legend Victor Chandler, who sold the company to UK racing kingpin Michael Tabor in 2014. Chandler stayed on as a consultant to the new owners but recently resurfaced as the founder of a new African-focused mobile sports betting and gaming company called Bet Lion that expects to launch this August. No word on whether the site will offer poker.
