I just recieved a email from XLBet that follows like this:

“Dear XLBet Client,

We are sorry to inform that XLBet has been forced to close down its business with imediate effect.

For a while we have known that we would need more capital into our company in order to keep building our product and despite almost reaching point of “break even” this fall, we haven’t succeeded in raising the necessary funds to cover the old losses and the costs connected to our new platform, and thus we have decided to close down our business before even more people got economically involved.

We regret that some clients are left frustrated with money on their betting accounts, but we are working on several solutions securing some of the player funds.

We also would like to appologize for the delayed information about the closure, but we would have prefered to get more info about above subject before we released the sad news.

That was not possible, so we will give further information by email when relevant as soon as possible, but until that please understand that any pay out request will be left pending and that any support service has to be closed down.

We are very sorry for the inconveniences brought on you by this, but hope you understand that we have done everything possible to avoid this situation and keep on offering E-Sports betting, Poker and Casino for you.”

I Hope that all customers get their money back. I’m not that positive about it but we may get some of our money back.

Hi, I’m sorry I’ve been inactive for a couple of days. It’s soon christmas and all so that have been time consuming for me.

For you who are a customer on XLBet like me you probably been scared that the site is down. I am too and I’m afraid XLBet might have some financial problems. I hope everyone get their money back but nothing is guaranteed in these situation I guess. This is a very sad day for the eSports scene.

I do not recommend anyone starting an account on XLBet until this is cleared (if it ever will be?). However I really hope that Pinnaclesports (who is a really big and trusted bookie) continues to offer odds on Starcraft2 matches. I’m still uncertain about this since their odds where very close to XLBets. I think they either hired the same guy to balance the odds or ripped XLBets odds. However it would be very sad for eSports if no trusted, realmoney betting site existed.

I hope we all get back our money and I’ll keep you updated about the issue from this site.
