Asian-facing online gambling operator 138.com has shut its digital doors for as yet unexplained reasons, while Mansion88 has closed its operations in Cambodia and Malaysia.
Earlier this month, some Asian online gambling affiliates began reporting that 138.com/138Bet was shutting down. The site first claimed that customers would be able to withdraw their funds, then alerted its suppliers that their services were no longer required and abruptly went black.
The reason(s) behind 138’s rush to the exits remains a mystery. Some Asian affiliates claimed that the site had shut only temporarily due to its support services in the Philippines being closed as a result of that country’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts. But that seems unlikely, given that the site is completely offline.
Other sources have claimed that the site was shut because its parent company Suncity Group – Asia’s dominant casino junket operator – was under internal pressure from shareholders to shed ties with its online gambling operations once and for all.
Meanwhile, shocking news coming from Asia famous online gambling website – Mansion88 a.k.a M88 exits and withdraw its service from both Cambodia and Malaysia on May 31.
Customers were told that “all promotions have been discontinued effect from May 25. You can still continue to play with your existing funds in the wallet or you may wish to withdraw by May 31.”
The company reportedly viewed the two markets as small fish compared to its operations in China, Thailand, and Vietnam. A quick scan of our Mansion88 article history will show the latter market is perpetually busting local agents who recruit gamblers to play on Mansion88, which has been dubbed the most popular betting site in a country where such activity remains illegal.
