RTG CLOSURES CLOUDED IN MYSTERY Are the closures of certain major brands connected with the recent death of a major operator? The sudden death two weeks ago of one of RealTime Gaming's major online casino operators, Warren Cloud, could be connected with the mysterious and abrupt closure of several of his better known brands this week. Without prior warning to players, the websites at Crystal Palace, High Rollers Lounge, Powerbet, Lucky Coin, Lucky Pyramid, Golden Nile, American Grand, Royal Circus and eGoli were closed, bearing a notice that advised: "This site is no longer available. Please check this space often for more information and updates." Cloud's Mobile777.com and Silver Sands brands seemed to be still in business, however. RTG's major licensor Hastings International has been asked for comment, but as we went to press no response had been received.
