Not too long ago, Valve started a crackdown on Counter Strike Global Offensive gambling websites. Many Youtubers felt the heat as well for running their own gambling sites.

Valve never intended to stop there, did it? The company is now going after Team Fortress 2 gamblers. After CS: GO crack down many websites started trading Team Fortress 2 items. Valve took notice and the company has just made an official announcement, saying that it is going to put an end of Team Fortress 2 gambling accounts.

In July of last year we outlined our position on gambling web sites, specifically noting that Valve has no business relationship with these sites. At that time we also began blocking many CSGO gambling accounts. You can view the original post here.

More recently, some gambling web sites started leveraging TF2 items. Today we began the process of blocking TF2 gambling accounts as well. We recommend you don’t trade with these sites.

Some popular YouTubers were caught red handed while promoting their own betting websites without disclosure. In fact, they may have manipulated odds in their favor to entice viewers on their channel.

Valve kept itself at a distance in the beginning of scandal which allowed these websites to operate for a long time. However, Valve finally decided to jump in and take action a few months ago.

The company has issued a cease & desist order to popular CS:GO betting websites. Including Tmartn’s CS:GO Lotto that has been at the center of controversy.

Now it is Team Fortress 2 gambling websites that will take the hit. Valve is committed to making sure its intellectual properties is not involved with such websites.
