Canadian Bwin bans (update)

But Boss Media remains silent

Online gambling software provider Boss Media in the GTechG2 group is responsible for the puzzling ban on Canadian players by several major internet gambling companies recently (see previous InfoPowa report).

This information came not from Boss Media, which remains silent despite several invitations to comment, but from licensee Bwin Interactive, one of the companies that has been advising Canadians that their action is no longer permitted.

In an email to a player this week, the Austrian company wrote:

“We regret to inform you that in light of the recent announcements by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation, Loto-Québec and the Atlantic Lottery Corporation regarding the launch of regulated online gaming products in Canada, our Download Casino vendor, GTECH G2, has decided to block Canadian Users from using their software.

“Only operators licensed by the Canadian authorities will be permitted to offer online gaming products to Canadian residents.

“We regret to inform you that we have to follow this decision and that the block is effective since 24.09.2010 onwards.

“As your access to the Download Casino has been terminated by an external legal issue, we are not able to allow you to continue playing.

“We regret that as this is due to an alteration within the Law in Canada.”
