Eurolinx investigation handed over to police

Reports from Malta indicate that the police are now involved

Online poker players impacted by the reportedly multi-million dollar failure of Jo Remme's Eurolinx, Linx Casino, Linx Media and Bet On Bet companies (see previous InfoPowa reports) will be heartened to learn that Maltese regulatory officials at the Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) have involved the island's police - and presumably their international contacts - in the enquiry, suggesting that unspecified criminal charges may be pending.

Remme, who is believed to be a Norwegian national, has proved elusive despite efforts by several players who combined to commission a private investigation to track the entrepreneur down. He is also reportedly too short of funds to be a useful target for a civil action, according to some message board postings.

Details are still sketchy on the Linx Media liquidation process involving the failed companies despite several weeks having passed.

The LGA has apparently received a number of complaints, triggering an investigation and leading to the eventual involvement of the police.

On its official website, the LGA has advised: “The company Eurolinks Ltd is not and has never been a licensed operator with the LGA. The LGA also notifies that the sportsbooks of Alpine Malta Ltd (BetonBet and Eurolinx) are not and never were licensed by the LGA.”

Approached by Poker News Daily for comment, the LGA confirmed that it had completed its own investigation and handed the matter over to the police, although it did not specify on what grounds the police had been involved. The regulator said that the results of the police investigation would be made public as soon as these had been completed.

    "Brian- That is not true. You tell me when the last time a VIP host was in conact with me??. I am asking for a 2 btc gift to satisfy me for being level 5. Your casino cleary stated a specail git would be give for each of the 5 levels. In addtion Brian, am I not correct that your betsoft games the max amount of spins were changed to a max of 20 cents pers spin from 40 cents. Why was not the players informed of this? My comments are honest and fair. The only time I saw your name in an email fto me is in regaring the monthly loyalty gift (which all players get) I am here to be honest and fair with my assesement on my treatment. And over 60,000 dollars in depsoits I think I have the right to  voice an opinion.  "
