Update: Chumba World Removed from Kickstarter

Crowd-fundraising site Kickstarter has removed the online casino social game Chumba World without providing any explanation for this action.

What was learned from a spokesman for Chumba developer Virtual Gaming World was that the venture was detached from the site without explanation after only four days of exposure. He said that its Kickstarter campaign was submitted and reviewed by Kickstarter management on three occasions, and was found acceptable, which makes the situation even more perplexing.

Kickstarter apparently refused to clarify its decision, citing 'privacy' and 'legal' rationales.

According to the site’s terms and conditions, a project can be suspended if it "...violates or acts inconsistently with the letter or spirit of the site’s guidelines or Terms of Use; materially changes the stated use of funds; makes unverifiable claims; or exhibits actions that are more closely associated with fraudulent or high-risk activity."

On the other side, in its public statement, VGW noted: “We are extremely disappointed at Kickstarter’s inconsistent and opaque approach to our project. In our view, the community of backers should decide whether a project succeeds or fails. Kickstarter should not be able to make arbitrary decisions with no explanation and no recourse.”

It was added that the company will now seek alternative channels for its drive to raise $50,000 in funding.
