Valve widens their Counter Strike gambling crackdown

 

Valve has widened their Counter-Strike gambling crackdown, threatening 20 more CSGO "skin gambling" websites with legal action if they do not close down. 

One of these websites, CSGO Shuffle, is one of the new sites that have been threatened with legal action. This website is allegedly owned by the former Twitch Streamer James "PhantomL0rd" Varga, who was recently banned by Twitch under a new policy that prohibits the live streaming of Counter Strike: Global Offensive gambling. 

Controversially PhantiomL0rd was streaming his bets on CSGO Shuffle, a website that he allegedly owns and has the ability to affect the results of. This allowed him to effectively advertise his gambling website and show how he could win huge prizes online, all while never disclosing any affiliation with the website itself.

The deadline for Valve's first wave of cease-and-desist notices expires this Wednesday, meaning that any websites that are still operational at that time will face legal action from Valve. Some of these websites are still operational, though many have already closed their doors.
