EuroPartners who is in charge of several Casino (Casino Tropez), Poker and Sports site has just announced that they will be ceasing their activities in Canada, effective immediately for now sign ups and in 30 days for existing players. The move is seen as part of protecting the company from legal issues, despite Canada being one of the most open countries to gaming, having their own regulatory authority in Kahnawake.
The industry is scratching their heads over the move, not being sure what exactly is the reason for
it. Canada is one of the largest markets in the world and it is not secret that EuroPartners and their
brands was one of the top players. Behind they are leaving a massive pool of players and affiliates,
that now have to find new places to play and promote. EuroPartners have guaranteed that all player
funds are secure and that players can simply request a cash out to receive their funds within the normal timeframe.
EuroPartners have recently also ceased their activity in Holland and Finland, countries who are also on
the edge of being regulated. It seems that EuroPartners doesn't want to step on any toes, ensuring they will always be able to get licenses in the countries, should they become regulated.
