Another day, another chapter of CS: GO drama.
Largest betting website on the internet for Valve’s famous Counter-Strike game may not stop working as we expected, but it will come back even stronger than before. Owners of the website revealed that they will begin the process of acquiring gambling licenses in a number of countries, and will shut off betting in those areas until the process is completed. The countries affected include the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Spain, and Turkey.
Users in those countries will still be able to withdraw skins that were on the site before this change took effect, but will be unable to bet until Lounge acquires a license for their country of residence. Representatives also said that they are working on new features for the site that will allow users to stay “engaged” while the process is ongoing.
If Valve is not satisfied by CSGO Lounge’s statement, the ten-day deadline given in the cease and desist will expire in the coming days.
