Geolotto and Booty Pirates have announced that they are closing down. In an email to players and in a statement on their website they announced that the site will be "shutting down by the end of March". They go on to "thank all of our loyal players for sticking with them over the years".

If you have deposits with the site then they state that "any refunds due for draws that were due to happen after the end of March will be sent to players shortly. These refunds will happen automatically where possible and manually where not.

According to an FAQ on Geolotto the reason for the closure is given as being due to a takeover. The site reports that "The company behind the site, Geonomics Global Games Ltd, has recently been taken over. The new owners, ZEAL Network SE, want the staff of Geonomics to focus on various overseas projects". Closing the site means that it's not left in limbo.

However a quick look on Geolotto's social media pages and their own forum would suggest that things were already in limbo long before the announcement. The last tweet from Geolotto was in September 2015 whilst Booty Pirates posted in February. Likewise on Facebook - the last post from Geolotto was in August 2015.

It's sad when a site closes, especially one which offered something different to the usual bingo and slots. However we get the feeling that perhaps the games weren't attracting enough to players so as to make them viable or competitive against bingo, slots and lotteries.

Originally called GeoSweep, when it launched in 2010, the site rebranded and relaunched as GeoLotto. Up until last March it offered free games via The Daily Dig before launching the pay to play Booty Pirates. The closure comes almost a year after Roy Tyler from Leighton Buzzard became Geolotto's first ever millionaire.
