A month since Valve sent shutdown notices to skin betting websites, CSGO Lounge, one of the most respected CSGO betting sites has closed their virtual items betting functionality.
Despite CSGO Lounge closing their virtual items betting functionality, this may not be the end for the betting website. CSGO Lounge has hinted in the past that they want to become a legitimate betting website.
Dear Community of csgolounge and dota2lounge,
Today we are announcing that we are closing our virtual items betting functionality with immediate effect. Depositing virtual skins and items in order to place a bet is not possible anymore.
At the moment we are working on a solution for items withdrawal, please stay tuned for an update on this topic.
Lounge will continue as an e-Sports entertainment and information platform with new features to be released very soon.
On behalf of Borewik, founder of CSGOLounge & Dota2Lounge
and the entire Lounges Team
