Shocking Shutdown of Veteran Sportsbooks


The Greek.com, Bet Jamaica.com and Poker World close their doors

A sudden announcement this week shocked many players and industry observers, as they received notice that the reputable sportsbook The Greek.com closed its doors to its target market - US customers. The fact that no reason has been provided for the closure triggered speculation that the decision may have been made due to the unfavorable climate in the US.

The company's non-US players have been assured that they will still be served, but the question is for how long, because they comprise a relatively small percentage of the company's client base.

In addition, reports have been arriving that the Greek.com's associated online poker site on the Cake Network, Poker World.com have closed to US action as well.

Prior to this, a subsidiary Bet Jamaica.com advised its players it was closing and transferring them to The Greek.com if they had accounts there, or to Heritage Sports if not.

"Players with balances are free to play or withdraw their funds from Heritage as if accounts were still at The Greek or Bet Jamaica," it was stated on that occasion. "Players will be asked to acknowledge the account transfer to Heritage when they log in to their accounts."

Now with the closure of The Greek.com, players are once again being moved to Heritage Sports.
