In a shock move, the brilliant Android gambling portal/app store Betcade has ceased operations. This comes as quite a surprise as the product impressed Casino International hugely when we saw it in a meeting room at a gaming expo a few years ago.
Founder and CEO David Chang issued this statement:
“Betcade was founded to create a better mobile user experience for the gambling industry. Through our discussions and partnerships in the industry, I think we have been a positive influence to-date and hopefully will see the online gambling industry shift to a “mobile-first” focus this year.
Unfortunately, Betcade will not be able to directly contribute to this shift as we are in the process of closing business operations. Start-ups seek to positively influence the industry which they are in however this comes with considerable risk as a business. After evaluating our options, it was determined that the best course of action for the company was to close the business in an orderly manner and look after our people the best we can.
I’d like to personally thank all of the wonderful people in the gambling and payment industry that believed in our vision and partnered with us to help provide a better gambling mobile experience for everyone. I’d also like to thank the press for their interest and coverage of us as we sought to bring a revolutionary product market.
I remain excited about the future the gambling industry and believe that it will continue to grow as operators integrate new consumer technologies that are becoming mainstream in other entertainment industries.
– David Chang
Founder & CEO, Betcade”
Casino International wishes the whole Betcade team well with their future endeavors.
