A popular online slot machine and casino betting site has announced that it will be switching software providers imminently, with no explanation for the change. The Littlewoods Casino, located on the World Wide Web at LittlewoodsCasino.com, announced last week that it will be shifting over to casino software offered by 888.com, from that provided by Cryptologic/Wagerlogic. Spokespeople for the casino offered no reasoning or explanation for the shift, which was declared to be finally effective as of tomorrow’s date – October 2, 2008.
In an interview, a spokesman for the online slots and casino gambling site would only say that the Littlewoods staff was going to try and make the changeover as painless as possible for its players, who naturally might be concerned about their accounts being held by the Cryptologic/Wagerlogic network. The mouthpiece for the casino stated that customers of the casino would, for a “limited period,” be able to request withdrawals of their funds from the current networks, but would not be able to make deposits. He said that he could not say how long player’s funds with Cryptologic/Wagerlogic would be available, and could only confirm that the switch would be complete and total.
As of this evening, the Littlewoods Casino’s main page displayed an “Under Construction” banner, with a brief note thanking players for their patience while the casino’s operators endeavored to make players’ “future gaming experience as smooth and streamlined as possible.” They promised that the site would be back up in “a few hours,” with all games “up and running.”
