AHA! The Lightbulb Goes On

24 November 1998

We've been trying to figure out why CentreBet (the well-respected online sportsbook operating out of the Northern Territory for the past few years) terminated their US accounts when they were purchased by Jupiter's Casino in Australia.

With a little digging, we found that Jupiter's Casino is owned (20%) by Hilton. That means that the first of the Big Boys (Nevada licensed gaming operators) have now entered the realm of internet gaming. We knew it was a matter of time... it's just come a little sooner than expected.

We'll keep you posted as we check it out further.
